From the above paragraph it should be clear that what makes Christian ministry distinctly Christian is not the activity in and of itself. With some ministries, that could be the case, but again, not all. What should make a ministry clearly Christian is the role that truth plays in the equation.

It also denies both believers and unbelievers the benefits of receiving the truth in a variety of settings.
I would argue that the greatest advances in ministry happen outside the church walls.

Our posture as Christians should always be geared to Christian ministry, whether involved in a formal ministry at church or one outside the confines of the church. The Nature of Christian Ministry.
