What our trip is all about:
Resort ministry is simply doing ministry in resort areas where people come to play and relax. Resort ministry enables Christians to share the gospel with those at leisure.
Creative tools are used in the resort setting to present the living Christ. However, it is essential to remember that resort missions is much more than just the tools--day camps, music, puppets, clowns, drama, recreation, and so on. It is using these ministry tools to earn the right to speak with people about the reason we are here – Jesus Christ!
We must target the un-churched and present a vibrant, alive Jesus. We must be sensitive to where a person is in his or her spiritual journey and faithfully share with them the love of God through His Son, Jesus Christ.
