  • REVOLUTION YOUTH MINISTRY HANDBOOKScriptural Guidelines for the Ministry of HelpsScriptural guidelines are helpful and necessary in the effective administration of Victory Family Church. Guidelines help communicate and direct us toward the same vision, so we will work together in unity and reach out to the people we serve. The Church has been called by God to be knit together as one body, and our success depends on unity. God will work and move supernaturally among His people when they are in harmony together.

    Victory Family Church members give their time, energy and talents freely to the work of the ministry by being a part of the Ministry of Helps. The Ministry of Helps is a supernatural ministry set in place by God to help bring to pass the vision or goal of the local church. The simple definition of Helps is one who gives assistance. A very appropriate acronym is Having Enough Loving People Serving.

    But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased himAnd whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honored, all the members rejoice with it. Now ye are the body of

  • Christ, and members in particular. And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teacher, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues. 1 Corinthians 12:18, 26-28

    In verse 18, we see that every member is put in the Church for a purpose. Every believer has a job to do in helping to care for Gods people.

    Verse 25 saysbut that the members should have the same care for another. Caring for someone is not a mental attitude but an action whereby you watch out for the needs and welfare of others. Helps is a supernatural ministry with its own supernatural anointing to serve God by serving His pastors and His people.

    whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister: And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant. Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and give his life a ransom for many. Matthew 20:26-28

    As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. 1 Peter 4:10

    Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think anything as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God; who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit; for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life. II Corinthians 3:5,6

    And He gave some apostles; and some prophets; and some evangelists; and some pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ. Ephesians 4:11-12

    Scriptural Motivation for Ministry of Helps

    In Numbers 11:10-17, we read how God set the Ministry of Helps into His people of that day Israel. Moses could no longer help the people individually. There were too many of them with too many problems.

    Moses cried out to God about the burden of all this people upon me (v.11), and God answered. The Lord told Moses to pick 70 elders of the people and bring them before Him. Then the Lord said He would take of the spirit which is upon thee, and will put it upon them ( v.17) in order that the elders might share the burden of the people. The 70 elders were given a supernatural ability to share the load of caring for Gods people.

  • In Exodus 18:13-18 we read, And it came to pass on the morrow, that Moses sat to judge the people: and the people stood by Moses from the morning unto the evening. And when Moses father-in-law saw all that he did to the people, he said, What is this thing that thou doest to the people? Why sittest thou thyself alone, and all the people stand by thee from morning unto evening? And Moses said unto his father-in-law, Because the people come unto me to inquire of God: When they have a matter, they come unto me; and I judge between one another, and I do make them know the statutes of God, and his laws. And Moses father-in-law said unto him, The thing that thou doest is not good. Thou wilt surely wear away, both thou, and this people that is with thee: for this thing is too heavy for thee; thou art not able to perform it thyself alone.

    Verse 19Be thou for the people to guard, that thou mayest bring the causes unto God. Moses first priority was to intercede for the people.

    Verse 20And thou shalt teach them ordinances and laws Moses was to know Gods Word and teach it to the people.

    Verse 20Show them the way wherein they must walkThen he was to live a Godly example and guide the people into the same lifestyle.

    Verse 20Show themthe work that they must do.Moses was then to show them their responsibilities and work concerning doing Gods work.

    Verse 21Moreover thou shalt provide out of all the people able men Finally, Moses was to delegate his work to others to complete the task. Counsel was then given to Moses that gave him his priorities and responsibilities.

    These men who received delegated responsibilities were to administrate the details of the day-to-day tasks in meeting each others needs. Moses was only to handle the decisions that others were unable to deal with. That is the Ministry of Helps in action!

    Of course, the best example of helps ministries in the Bible can be seen in the events of Jesus life. He came to earth to live a natural life before God in such a way that we could imitate and follow it.

    In Matthew 10:5-8, Jesus sent out the twelve disciples. Like any other shepherd, Jesus was only one man. He could do only so much by Himself. God gave him the Ministry of Helps to expand His ability to minister to the people in all of the towns and villages to which He went.

    When Jesus multiplied the loaves and fishes in Matthew 14:15-21, He needed the Ministry of Helps to distribute the food.

    In Matthew 8:23-26, the apostle wrote of an incident when Jesus was asleep in the boat during a storm at sea th
