“This ministry started when Doctor Bishop Oriel M. Ballano preached about the need of a church to be like a 5-star hotel during one of the Sunday Services,” said Myra Castillo, head of the hospitality ministry. Juices being served for the VIPs during services? As the first timers come to the services to be refreshed with the Word of God, their physical bodies also need to be refreshed. The hospitality ministry makes sure that not only the physical bodies but also the souls of first timers are refreshed as they receive the warmth of a Doulosian welcome – way better than what a 5-star hotel can offer. This ministry does not just cater to the physical need of the guests, but they believe it also has an eternal value. As the first timers feel that they are greatly valued, as if inside a family, they will eventually have the desire to come back to this place and grow with this family.

Preparing the juice has to pass a standard quality control. To ensure cleanliness, the people involved have to wear gloves for them not to imprint even a single fingerprint on the glass. To provide that clean look, they also have to wear black or white top. Everything should portray the spirit of excellence. This ministry envisions a culinary place in the church dream building where hospitality ministry volunteers will prepare the juice and food for the guests. By then, the congregation will become bigger that more hands are needed to serve the people.

Those who are interested in volunteering in this ministry need to have one thing: a servant heart. According to Myra Castillo, “there is no requirement to join in this ministry, but as long as you have that servant heart towards other people, you are the best person for this.”

Involve in our Church Ministries

How to Join a Ministry:

Ministry is the service that the church gives to God’s people in such a way that excellence would manifest to bring glory to God. Involving in the ministry means going an extra mile from your typical attending or leading the cell group. As you commit yourself to be part of a ministry, the more that maturity will be seen in your life. We believe that everyone has been blessed by the Lord with potentials, talents, and skills that are purposed to be used for His own glory.

By involving in the ministry, you would be able to develop and master your own gifts and abilities while serving and blessing other people as well. It is an avenue to grow more with other people in the Church. And as one involves, his character is also being honed as the Church focuses not on skills but on character in every ministry. Our goal is to bring out the best in each and everyone holistically—spiritually, physically, emotionally, socially and intellectually. Connecting to the church through ministry requires a heart for excellence, a passion to learn, and a commitment to enlarge and empower the body of Christ through the talents, gifts and skills He has given us.
