Jesus shared with His disciples, “Greater works than these shall you do…” Though we know that since we are saved by grace and not of works; we do believe that anyone that has received the Salvation of Christ should be compelled to do great work for Him and His Kingdom. As a result, the Works Ministry of “The Place of the Outpouring” finds creative ways to take the mission, the vision and the ministry of the Church beyond the four wall of the Church.
