Missions & Evangelism
World evangelization has long been an important part of All Souls’ mission work.
Currently we support:
- Anglican Frontier Missions, whose focus is on the 25 “least-reached” people groups around the world
- We support missionaries working in South America and among Muslims in Africa
- We also have individual missionaries who are supported by families and home groups
Direct international outreach is emphasized within the All Souls body; both youth and adults participate in short-term mission trips in support of established Christ-centered mission organizations… such as “Amigos for Christ” who operates in Nicaragua.
All Souls offers an intercessory prayer ministry weekly (Thursday mornings from 10am until Noon or later if needed) or by appointment which is open to the community. We also provide a bicycle repair and distribution ministry for needy children.
Each Chrstmas we volunteer with the Salvation Army and partner with “Operation Christmas Child” to build boxes of love for the children in need.
All Souls has participated in numerous ministries in the past (most often in under-privilaged housing communities) that included food distribution, Elementary school age tutoring, a clothing closet, and piano classes. Parishioners volunteer their time and resources to serve those around us with needs, as well as build relationships and share the love of Christ in tangible ways.
“His Big House” is a weekly “kids church” where we focus on unchurched children in the community. All Souls hosts this Ministry, under the guidance of Mr. Sean Price. All Souls parishioners and members of other congregations participate and help Mr. Sean with this Ministry. Held each Saturday, this program reaches out to Kindergarten through 5th grade children with fun, excitement, worship, and teaching from God’s word. Kids are loved and cared for while they develop an understanding of God’s love and his offer of salvation through Jesus. This outreach extends to kids living in low-income apartment complexes in the community through a bus ministry.
All Souls supports YoungLives through participation and financial giving.
YoungLives is a ministry of Young Life for teen moms and their babies. Through traditional Young Life activities like club, camp, and Campaigners, YoungLives mentors come alongside young women in a way we believe Jesus would do: with compassion, support and hope.
Pastoral care is a ministry of both clergy and laity caring for our brothers and sisters during their times of physical, spiritual and emotional upheaval.
We visit them at home, in hospitals, nursing homes, retirement homes and hospice facilities. The ministry of physical presence is used as a vehicle to convey to our sisters and brothers the touch, love and compassion of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Adult education classes are offered each Sunday morning. Classes are taught by qualified Lay and Clergy persons. The focus is on the study of Scriptures and their application in our daily walk with the Lord. Both topical and expository studies are offered.
Small groups are critical for the development of oneness within the body of All Souls or any Christian church. Groups usually consist of six to twelve members with one couple serving as the host or leader. Members generally meet once a week at the home of one of the group members, but the church campus is available for group meetings also. Most groups have a mixture of ages and marital status. Small groups also offer another opportunity for intimate Bible study as well as support for each member during difficult times.
Kairos, designed much like a Cursillo or Anglican 4th Day weekend, is an international interdenominational prison ministry operating in 350 prisons in 31 states in the U.S. and 8 additional countries. Kairos team members believe they are called by God to share the love of Christ with those impacted by incarceration. Programs are offered to inmates and the families of those incarcerated. All Souls’ congregation is very active in the Kairos ministry with many of our lay and clergy serving in the prison environment as well as ministering to their family members thru Kairos Outside ministry.
