Associate Ministers educate and train individuals called to the gifted areas of five-fold ministry (apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor and teacher) for the building up of the Body of Christ.
Ministry of Acts
The Ministry of Acts teaches the Great Commission that was commanded by Jesus Christ in Mark 16:15-18. The outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost enabled believers to have a Divine Encounter that filled them with power and authority which still indwells believers today in four areas of ministry: Prophecy, Healing, Holy Spirit and Deliverance. This ministry is dedicated to enhancing the believer's understanding in these ministry areas.
The Prayer Ministry is dedicated to seeking God continually on behalf of the church’s members, ministries of the church, the community and its leaders and those separated from God. The Prayer Ministry is aligned with the vision and mission of Mount Zion believing God for unity among the believer and praying for all people to Grow at the Kingdom Level. The Prayer Ministry serves as a facilitator for inviting prayer within the body of Christ.
Continuing Education Ministry
The Continuing Education Ministry (CEM) expands the selection of academic resources offered by Mount Zion Baptist Church. Seven or more one-hour classes are available during each quarter. CEM is designed to impart knowledge that Christian principles can be used in employment and in an instructional setting. The overall goal is to build self-confidence within the current environment.
The Historical Ministry mission is to collect, maintain, and preserve all historical records, documents, and photographs of the church to display to current and future generations.
The Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts and Brownies have been established as alternative environments for the community, with their basic foundations centering on Christian principles. Each group is committed to equipping, encouraging, and enabling young boys and girls ranging from 6-18 years of age.
