Nonprofit Ministry Ideas

During rough times, many churches reach out to the community by starting nonprofit ministry programs. A nonprofit ministry is a religious-based organization that aims to help the community. An example of a nonprofit ministry, Rising Above Ministries offer special events for families of people with special needs. A nonprofit ministry can choose to support many causes. When looking for ideas for your nonprofit ministry, look to the needs of your community, as well as the interests of the members involved.

Need Based Nonprofit Ministry
With many people in the world in need of help, a need based nonprofit ministry becomes an easy choice to make. Many churches have a food pantry. Allow people in need from your community to come in once a week to pick up a few items from the pantry. Collect food or money donations to help keep the pantry stocked. A clothing collection is another simple nonprofit ministry idea. Give donated clothing out to families in need or donate the collected clothing to a local homeless or women's shelter. If members have an interest in helping children, then a good choice would be to collect school supplies. Contact local schools to get a list of needed classroom and school supplies.

Support Nonprofit Ministry
Emotional support becomes critical in times of need. A support ministry helps bring people of similar lifestyles together. Offer a safe environment for families of special needs children or cancer patients, set up weekly support groups, monthly events or retreats. Become someone to talk to, start a support hot line for women dealing with a troubled pregnancy or miscarriage. Offer after school activities and a mentoring program to help troubled teens in your area.

Homeless Aid Nonprofit Ministry
Start simple with handing out meals, jackets and blankets to homeless in your community. As your nonprofit ministry grows offer free computer training, interview tips or collect old business suits to give out for job interviews. How to find a job when they have no transportation remains one of the biggest problems for homeless in the world today. Offer a transportation service to take people to their interviews or jobs. Expand the services you offer to help feed people and give them a home

World Aid Nonprofit Ministry
Sometimes you want to help with more than just your community. A world aid nonprofit ministry allows members to help people from different sides of the world. One idea is to collect shoes and send them to poverty-stricken children of the world. Research to find a country in need of something, whether it is shoes, clothing, food or medical needs, and start finding ways to donate to these countries.
