The MarketPlace Ministry has two objectives.
We call it the two E's – Evangelism and Equipping of Christians in the marketplace.
We have numerous programmes, such as quarterly lunch meetings, the Invitation to Life Dinners and the Each One, Reach One (soft evangelism in the workplace), to reach out to those in the marketplace. Our goal is to impact the market place with the gospel in an effective and relevant manner.
Equipping of Christians:
Our aim is to equip Christians in the marketplace to live their lives with integrity and as a testimony to
Christ, to encourage and be a support to them in their challenges and to provide friendship, counsel and advice not just on spiritual matters but also in the day to day business aspects of working in the marketplace. Our mentorship programme pairs a pool of mentors to mentees who have specific issues they need help in, whether in their careers, businesses or living out their faith. We organise quarterly luncheons at which topics of interest are introduced and discussed. We provide support to those who have started or are intending to start a ministry in their place of work such as an office Alpha or a Bible study. We also act as the arm of the church to participate in, support and plan any Hong Kong-wide conference for the marketplace man or woman.
This is a Church initiative to provide mentorship for people who encounter challenges and issues at work. Sometimes you may feel you need to talk with somebody who has experience in some area of your workplace or situation. If you do encounter such issues please sign up with the program and we will assign someone to talk with you. You need to tell us what your areas of challenges are and what kind of outcomes you expect so that we will see if we can be of assistance. Wherever we feel more professional help is needed we will inform you and point you to the required direction. But we will always lend a listening ear.
To ensure that the mentorship program works we need mentors! If you feel you have a good listening ear, are patient and have God's love to assist people who have challenges in their work place, please sign up. You need to fill in the Mentors' form so that we know what areas you feel comfortable mentoring in and we will match you with those who need assistance.
Thanks for your love and commitment. In all things we are guided by the Holy Spirit.
Fellowshipping is of the most effective ways of equipping saints in the marketplace. There is a restaurant in Pacific Place where ICA members can bring their friends and meet other Christians in an informal and relaxed environment. Here they can fellowship and learn from each other over drinks and finger food.
