Off The Bench Purposes & Mission
Off The Bench Ministries has two primary purposes:
First, to honor and magnify our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Second, to get "off the bench" and serve His people as we are called. No more "riding the pine" as a bench warmer! Simple purposes.
"Therefore, as we have the opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers." Galatians 6:10
Our Primary Mission(s):
Further, the ministry is born of Living Water. Thus, our primary mission is to donate life-giving bottled water to those whom God identifies with the hope that all will receive the Living Water of Christ Jesus.
"And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones who is My disciple, truly I tell you, that person will certainly not lose their reward." Matthew 10:42
A secondary mission is to "write about and for our Lord Jesus" in a Christian blog. This blog will highlight God's work through individual Christians, Christian ministries, and articles for lukewarm Christians and On Fire believers. God has called us to write 56 articles for the "You Are Irreplaceable" Suicide Prevention Series for 2022-2023.
"Now we ask you, brothers and sisters, to acknowledge those who work hard among you, who care for you in the Lord, and who admonish you. Hold them in the highest regard in love because of their work." 1 Thessalonians 5:12-13
