Traditional Ministry vs. Passion-based Ministry

Traditional ministry is action based. It follows the following progression:

  • Action (starts with deciding what you want to do)
  • Program (developing a program to accomplish the same)
  • Mission (adapting that to your mission)
  • Vision (basing your vision on your program’s potential)
  • Formation (praying for God to bless what you have done)

Passion-based ministry is God based. It follows the following progression:

  • Formation (starts with relationship with God until He births in you what He wants you to do)
  • Vision (basing your vision on what God says it is)
  • Mission (your purpose in fulfilling God’s vision)
  • Ministry (replaces programs)
  • Action (all about doing what God wants done)
