    Who is a Minister?

    Who is a Minister?

    Julie and Matt are on the search for the answer to the question “Who is a minister?” They’ll be joined by their friend Heather (a minister) as she helps clarify who ministers and what ministry is.

    THE CHURCH — Everyone who loves and trusts Jesus.
