HOSPITALITY is the UNIVERSAL MINISTRY. It is as essential to the ongoing expression of the Christian life as walking and talking are to physical life.
HOSPITALITY is APPLIED AGAPE LOVE. It is the practical application and expression of the Biblical command to “love your neighbor as yourself.”
HOSPITALITY is the WOMB or ACTIVE ENVIRONMENT in which spiritual truth becomes connected in relationship with both God and men.
HOSPITALITY is the SPIRITUAL GREASE that lubricates and facilitates all legitimate ministry. The Biblical mandate for those aspiring to any spiritual leadership role is “given to hospitality.”
HOSPITALITY is a MATTER of the HEART. It is the essential ingredient for…
- Rebuilding community
- Restoring relationship
- Reconciling races
- Reviving families
HOSPITALITY enables TRUTH to become FLESH. It is not a gift I HAVE but a gift I GIVE. It is the glue that weds TRUTH in RELATIONSHIP.
