The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others ~ Ghandi
MBM is committed to providing every believer with opportunities to engage in local and global acts of service so that the church's impact can be far-reaching and truly effective.
Why and How... we do what we do.
"Ten years ago when the Lord whispered in my ear Ministry Beyond Myself I never imagined that those words would take shape and my life would be transformed. From Mexico to South Africa and all the stops in between, I have seen how God can use just one person who is committed to acts of service to positively interrupt the course of a community. When I consider what He has done and all that I anticipate that He shall do, I am fully persuaded that as a member of the church-His body, I am charged to do ministry beyond myself. What about you?
The will of God will never lead you where the grace of God cannot keep you. Where is He leading you?
