Our Worship Team is made up of volunteers who are committed to leading the community into the presence of our Lord with both contemporary and traditional worship songs and hymns. Our desire is to worship God in spirit and in truth and to help people develop a more intimate relationship with the Lord through praise and worship. Psalm 42:1 As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you O God.
We serve youths through several avenues. Young people are the heartbeat of Beacon of Hope. We believe that we have a special calling in this area. Our Youth Group is called Turn Around Generation (TAG) and together with our three guiding principles: G-Governed from within like David and Esther; E- Eager to make a difference like Paul and D – Driven by kingdom purpose like Daniel, our youths have been TAGGED by God for His purpose. The vision for TAG centers around the biblical model of passing the baton as we see Moses passing the baton of leadership to Joshua. We are also involved in primary school ministry through Good News Club and the School Virtues Project and we hold Children’s church on Sundays. Our key verse is 1 Timothy 4:12 Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.
Our Women’s Ministry is called Potter’s Clay Inc. Also known as PINK. Our vision is to be a group of kingdom women transformed and reshaped into the image and likeness of Christ and accepting our God ordained role in every dimension of life. We are engaged in the spiritual building of women to achieve their destiny and we are also involved in many social and community activities directed at leading women to Christ thereby strengthening the family and society. Isaiah 64:8 “Yet, O Lord You are our Father. We are the clay, You are the Potter; we are all the work of Your hand.”
Our Prayer team meets every Saturday morning to make intercession on behalf of the saints and the work of the Lord. We follow our Lord’s example of moving away from the hustle and bustle to be refreshed and get instruction from His Father. We believe that prayer changes things and that perseverance in prayer is necessary. Praying according to the Father’s will is the pattern that Jesus set and which we must follow. 1 Timothy 2:1-2 I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— 2 for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.
A strong emphasis is placed on spiritual growth at Beacon of Hope. Our Wednesday night Bible study is called Discipleship, Growth and Development because during these sessions we concentrate on the practical aspects of implementing the Word in our lives. The sharing of our secondary illuminations and experiences with the Word helps to strengtheneach other as we learn and mature together. This is in accordance with Proverbs 27 :17 As iron sharpens iron, So a man sharpens the countenance of his friend.
Outreach Ministry is about going out into the community and demonstrating the love of God in words and deeds. As ambassadors for Christ we work in cooperation with the Holy Spirit to minister to others and draw their attention to Jesus. We use a variety of means to help others see Him better, not us. Our aim is to reach those who do not yet have a relationship with Jesus Christ and to encourage the saints. We minister to the sick, shut-in, troubled and needy in our surrounding communities. Providing basic necessities where required is also part of our mission. Matthew 25:40 The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
