"Special Ministries" area of our
website is designed to offer Good Messengers Ministry Members
service outreaches (servant evangelism) in which to
share Christ and serve people. "Servant Evangelism" is a simple,
straightforward approach to sharing Godís love in simple, practical
ways. While most "Servant Evangelism"
ministries just serve and often
evangelize we see this differently at Good Messengers Ministries.
Ultimately, sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ is our primary goal and we
serve the peoples needs as well. Good Messengers Ministries "Special
Ministries" provides an opportunity for members
to serve people in love who have a variety of needs and then this act love
becomes a starting point for us to share our faith. We in no way use the
"Special Ministries" listed below to promote or market for a
particular church or organization. We do not use this ministry to accept
donations or anything else but to serve people and share Christ. Below you
will find a list of Special Ministry opportunities for you to prayerful
consider getting involved in.
Messengers Ministries of Northwest Indiana is starting
a "Take up the Shield Northwest Indiana Project."
You are most likely on this web page because you share
our love and respect for the law enforcement family and our
commitment to bring the gospel of Jesus Christ to every
man and woman who carries a badge. The
"Take up the Shield Northwest Indiana Project" is
a collaboration among peace officers, evangelists &
citizens to equip law enforcement officers to fight not only
the criminal element on the streets of America but the
spiritual spiritual battle that rages around us. The goal of
this project is to place a copy of this inspiring book, Take
Up the Shield, in the hands of every peace officer to
assist them in both battles. We ask that you look at
the project details within this web page and provide backup
to some of America's Finest. Click

Ministries needs evangelists to help with a local food outreach
program. Children's Hunger Fund has been
using the local churches to distribute food to people in need. There have been many people that
are in need of this food --- more needs than workers! Good
Messengers Ministries will be partnering with a local Pastor who works
directly with the Children's Hunger Fund, to distribute food boxes to needy families.
Each box of food
designed to feed a family of four for one week. Yet, we know the greater
need is salvation coming to each home. A specially designed Bible
study has been created to be used in each home visit.
Children's Hunger Fund is a non-profit organization designed to work
churches and desires that the church get into the homes to meet the
needs of people and share the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Children's Hunger Fund does not distribute the food directly but
works through the local church. Children's Hunger Fund seeks to
alleviate the suffering of children by equipping God's Church to
communicate the Gospel through effective compassion ministry.
One of our members,
Pastor Mike Matiscik of Christian
Fellowship Church is in charge of this "Special Ministry"
Pastor Mike has a waiting list
of people who have asked for food. For those interested, Pastor Mike will train you and then
continue to supply you with the food and names of those in need.
The commitment is once a week for twelve to sixteen weeks. You
can work with one or more families depending upon your schedule. You
can visit the homes at a mutually convenient time.
The Bible Study program is also very flexible to fit your abilities and
background. During your training you can learn how to adapt the program
to your Bible knowledge. Like any evangelistic opportunity, you will
grow in your knowledge of God and His Word as you share the gospel.
Know this is hard work but also very rewarding work. Sometimes the people
are extremely grateful for the food, other times they are not. Sometimes
the people want nothing to do with the Bible and will stop delivery.
Sometimes you will see poverty in abundance and it will disturb you.
This work requires a person dedicated to prayer.
We require that two or three people go on every visit. If a third person
goes, that person can remain in your vehicle to pray while the other
team members are inside. We are looking for men and women who desire
to reach the lost to be involved in this work. Those that have a
compassion for the lost and for those in need will truly find a perfect
ministry for themselves.
If you are interested in committing to this work, please contact
Pastor Mike Matiscik 219-931-5177
Know we really need your help. We are praying for God to send us more workers.

PRAYER STATION MINISTRY
ministry of Prayer Stations is based on the fact that we are
providing an opportunity to pray for people who have a variety
of needs and believing that God will hear our prayer and act
on behalf of those for whom we pray. Our prayer of faith then
becomes a starting point for us to share our faith.
In effect we begin by praying for the felt needs of people on
the street, and then by the direction of the Holy Spirit move
from their felt needs to their real need - giving their heart
and life to Jesus! We begin with the temporal and move to the
