Ministry of Hospitality

The Ministry of Hospitality is the hallmark of the Christian community.  It is the process of welcoming and caring.  Jesus welcomes the poor, the broken, the sick and the sinners, throwing open the doors of His Father’s house to all.  Jesus is our model of hospitality. Protocols for each role are available below.  Contact – Heather Schilling
