As a part of Apostle Bill Adkins’ vision given to him by God to “Bring Up This People,” Greater Imani has many different ministries designed to enrich and empower all.
At GICCC the Usher Ministry is an organized unit of Christian workers committed to the task of enhancing the quality of prayer, praise and the entire worship experience.
Their mission is to make each member and visitor feel welcomed and valued when they enter the sanctuary. To maintain an environment that is free from interruptions so that the congregation may feel free and secure while they worship.
Watchman Security Ministry
The Watchman Ministry consists of men and women who are called to serve and protect God’s House. The ministry has over 30 years of experience in law enforcement and event security. The members consist of Law Enforcement Officers, Military Personnel, Business professionals, Truck Drivers, Educators, Deacons, and Ministers.
Ezekiel 33:6 “But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet and the people are not warned, and a sword comes and takes a person from them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require from the watchman’s hand.”
GICCC’s Greeters Ministry is designed to afford visitors and members an opportunity to leave any stress or distress at the door. We are here to offer a warm smile, a strong handshake, and a holy hug to those persons worshiping with us. Always praying that everyone will enter His courts with thanksgiving and praise.
Health Care Ministry
Our Health Care Ministry will keep us informed about preventative health care practices such as yearly physicals, good eating habits and exercising. This ministry also encourages and teaches us how to properly care for our temples in a Godly manner.
New Member’s Ministry
Greater Imani is founded on the principle of the “teaching ministry.” We believe that all of our members should always be in a state of progressive spiritual improvement, constantly advancing in the divine life for the “perfecting of the saints.” Our Christian education department is committed to professionalism and excellence in teaching the best in materials and curriculum. Our zeal of God must be according to knowledge. To that end, Greater Imani offers Orientation Classes for all new members and is open to any visitors or long-time members who would like additional information about the church. These orientation classes are for anyone interested in learning about opportunities to serve, as well as information about all areas of the church and its history. The sessions are taught in four-week intervals on Wednesday nights beginning at 6:00pm.
We are a large church family, but we are a loving church family. We don’t want our new members to get that “lost” feeling here. Our goal is to bring every new member together to share love and minister to all their spiritual needs.
