At Courtside Ministries, we believe that that Christ meets people at their point of physical and spiritual need. As a result, we work to meet the needs of the whole person, physical and spiritual.
Here are some of the ways we reach people with the love of Christ:
Praying for individuals as they enter and exit local courthouses – The truth is, local courthouses are not fun or happy places. People coming into the courts, from judges all the way to defendants, are there because they are dealing with legal problems of some sort. These issues usually bring about fear, frustration, anger, bitterness, loss and uncertainty. We believe the most important thing we can do is pray with and for people entering the courts, offering them the peace and wisdom that comes from being in the presence of the Lord.
Providing Scripture and biblical resources – People dealing with the emotions of legal issues need wisdom, grace, hope and compassion. The only lasting source for these needs comes through a relationship with Jesus Christ and the message found in His Word. At Courtside, we provide Scriptures and biblical resources that enable people to see God’s perspective on the issues they are facing.
Providing referrals to local churches based on the location and needs of the people we reach – A primary goal of Courtside Ministries is to guide people into regular fellowship in a local church that can support their physical and spiritual needs. Courtside works strategically with churches in the community to effectively minister to people and encourage their ongoing involvement in church fellowship.
Ongoing followup and support – Courtside Ministries uses a team of volunteers to contact the people we help to ensure that they are continuing to receive the physical and spiritual support they need.
Provide local churches with an active ministry for their members to participate in making an eternal difference in their communities – The call of every believer is to reach out to those around them with the love and grace of Jesus Christ. As a non-denominational, evangelical Christian ministry, Courtside Ministries offers church members a dynamic way to reach out in their communities with the love of Christ through prayer, volunteer service and giving.
