I said in the article about church ministries descriptions that the first step to provide full church ministries descriptions was to have a church ministries list to start with. This is what this page is intended for; provide a list of church ministries. We will be adding the appropriate bible references so you can look them up and study them. Hopefully they will inspire you to have your very own church ministries list and why not a full church ministries descriptions. For now let’s say the list is not exhaustive, as we will keep adding as the find them in the scriptures.

To make things easy, we will divide the church ministries list into levels of church ministries and groups or types of church ministries.

Basic Church Ministries List or Body Ministries List

Body ministries can be found in Roman 12: 4-8 and include:

  • Prophecy
  • Servanthood
  • Teaching
  • Exhortation and encouragement
  • Giving to others and meeting their needs
  • Ruling or taking charge or leading others
  • Compassion and mercy and taking care of people

As soon as a person is born again these ministries begin to take place and the believer starts to immediately function and operate in them. Every believer in the body of Christ has a ministry and it starts with body ministries.

Advanced Church Ministries List or Fivefold Ministries List

The Leadership or Fivefold Ministries List can be found in Ephesians 4:11 and are:

  • Apostles (build the church upon Jesus-Christ who is our foundation)
  • Prophets (make Christ real to God’s people)
  • Teachers (conform the Body to Christ)
  • Evangelists (inspire the Body to win the world for Christ)
  • Pastors (nurture the Body as Christ the good shepherd)

These are higher-level ministries. They are the governing body of the church.

1 Corinthians 12: 28-31 provides a list of both basic  and advanced church ministries:

  • Apostles (build the church upon Jesus-Christ who is our foundation)
  • Prophets (make Christ real to God’s people)
  • Teachers (conform the Body to Christ)
  • Workers of Miracles or Evangelists (inspire the Body to win the world)
  • Those with Gifts of Healings
  • Helpers
  • Administrators
  • Those with Varieties of Tongues…
