“For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you , plans to give you hope and a future.’’  Jeremiah 29:11
Every church has the opportunity to reach out to the lost in their area. What kind of outreach ministries should a church have? First, no single congregation can provide every type of outreach ministry. In His wisdom, God has uniquely gifted each congregation with those who excel in particular types of outreach. We can categorize outreach ministries in two types —
essential
outreach ministries and
 
optional
outreach ministries.
There are a few types of outreach that every church congregation should perform. These practices are essential. While the way they are carried out will vary, Scripture is clear the church is to reach out in the following areas:
World missions:
 
Every church is called to reach out beyond its local community to make disciples of all nations.

Outreach ministries to the poor and needy:
Jesus said, “Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me’” (         
         ). Ministry to the “least of these” must be part of every church’s outreach.
Outreach to children:
, Jesus taught, “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.”
