Evangelistic Team

Our Mission As It Relates To Evangelism: “Evangelize the Lost Sinner”
We are committed to serve the Lord Jesus Christ by reaching out to the lost sinner and the “whosoever will.” By the grace of God, we will engage our communities with the best method available, which is the Holy Bible! In it are methods, examples, and illustrations of which can be applied to any contemporary context. The best example of evangelism, is found in Jesus’ ministry. Jesus said;

“For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost. How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray? And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray. Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish." – Matthew 18: 11-14

Jesus' care and concern for lost souls leads him to go after even the “ONE!” We invite you to be a part of our evangelistic efforts to do likewise and go after even the “ONE.”

Care, Compassion and Comfort Committee

Mission Statement
In accordance with the Mount Olive Baptist Church (MOBC) mission statement, we will Exalt the Loving Savior, Jesus Christ, Expound the Living Scriptures, Evangelize the Lost Sinner and Edify the Learning Saints. We will strive to uphold this mission and ministry by providing care, compassion, and comfort to those who are experiencing need due to the loss of a loved one.

Ministry Activities and Duties

Who we are
We are a proactive ministry. We desire to provide helpful information and available resources to those members in need through qualified and trained individuals in the areas of consultation and intervention. Only those who are trained and approved by the MOBC pastoral leadership shall provide services to families or individuals seeking spiritual counseling.

We will meet on the 2nd Saturday of each month at 10:00 a.m. via Zoom. At each meeting, a subject matter expert will provide an overview of their area of expertise in relation to those experiencing loss and grief. Participants can then avail themselves of the services of their choosing to assist them as they deem appropriate.

Follow-up contact
We will provide follow-up contact to members to check on their well-being as part of our Care, Compassion, and Comfort mission and ministry. This contact may be in the form of phone calls and/or in-person contact at the church. No home visits will take place unless approved by MOBC pastoral leadership. There shall be no one-on-one visits. All approved visits must have chaperoned coverage.

Prayer and Prayer Requests
Group prayer and phone prayer requests are a part of our mission to provide compassion and comfort.

Our desire
Psalm 23 verse 4 (a) states, “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death…”. It is our desire to provide assistance to those experiencing loss in order that they can walk through that valley knowing that The God of all comfort, The Father of Mercy, and The Prince of Peace is there to help them make that passage.
