Reaching out to people with compassion is a driving force of ministry here at Clearview. These opportunities are given every Thursday night in our C.A.R.E. ministry from 6:30 - 8:00pm. Help us meet the needs of our church and community with the love of God.
C.A.R.E. — Clearview Actively Reaching Everyone
- The C.A.R.E. ministry sees the church as a people not a steeple. This ministry mobilizes every member in your church to use his or her gifts. It helps them see the church as bodies and members instead of bricks and mortar. They are a piece of the puzzle that makes up the picture of Jesus your church is painting for the world to see.
- The C.A.R.E. ministry balances the Great Commission. The Great Commission is more than just outreach. It consists of inreach (teaching) and outreach (baptizing). The church cannot reach out and neglect reaching in and it cannot reach in at the expenses of not reaching out.
- The C.A.R.E. ministry gives people opportunities to minister. C.A.R.E. is ministry sensitive. It is a big step from the pew to an overseas mission trip. C.A.R.E. is sensitive to how busy people are and the stronghold of inadequacy. C.A.R.E. creates a "baby step" that allows people to experiment with their gifts. The time demand is one hour a month. Being able to keep a commitment and exercising their gift produces fruit!
- C.A.R.E. saturates the church and community with a positive message. The message of C.A.R.E. is, "my name is Travis from Clearview. I wanted to let you know we care. Is there anything I can pray for you about?" This message produces two results. First: a positive reaction. Second: an open door (Colossians 4:2) to share what Jesus means to me and what He can do for them.
We want you to be a part of the blessings of God in the life of your church. The principles pulled from the C.A.R.E. ministry will free you and help people line up with the Great Commission. We'll bring you updates often on just what's happening through the C.A.R.E. ministry and share the stories of how Christ is making a difference in people's lives.
