What is the ministry?

The primary ministry of a follower of Jesus is reconciliation.

Everywhere you look, the world is defined by alienation, the separation of one part from the whole. Politics has never been more partisan. Families are struggling to live together. Friendships fray at the slightest hint of discord. Even the church has been fragmented. Alienation is the most pervasive problem in our world. Amidst this division, Jesus calls his followers to be Ambassadors who work to bring the reconciliation He accomplished to every corner of this world. The sad reality is that few teachings in scripture is more ignored than the call to reconciliation.
