About Empower Ministry
The goal of Empower Ministry is to empower people to live their God given potential. Special emphasis is on working with local churches ,so congregations can live a spiritually and emotionally resilient life while witnessing to their world.
Two scriptures state what the theme of Empower Ministry is:
For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength (empowers me). Philippians 4:13 (NLT)
Get wisdom, and whatever you get, get insight (understanding). Proverbs 4:7
We believe that the Bible gives wisdom, our goal is to help people develop insight! We do this through literature, webinars and public speaking.
