The Men’s Ministry under the leadership of our Pastor endeavors to develop as men of Zion Hill Baptist Church who will respond to God’s call for Christ Centered living. We will unite ourselves toward theses goals: 1. Making each man a reflection of the character and person of Jesus Christ through the study of His Word. 2. building of relationships that will provide personal accountability.
3. engage in opportunities for service in our homes, our church, and community.

The Missions Ministry is focused on providing to the needs of those that are less fortunate and to those who are sick and or shut-in. Our purpose is to focus primarily on our church membership, our West Philadelphia community and the City of Philadelphia. Our future goals will include a foreign mission which will reach out to those in need worldwide. We will assist the Pastor and members to carry out the vison and mission of Zion Hill by engaging in projects to fulfill the work and service to all of God’s people.

For I was hungry, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
We will endeavor to partner with other ministries within our church to participate in outreach opportunities as well. Some of those opportunities are:

The Minister of Music will prepare the various choirs of the Music Ministry by selecting and teaching appropriate Christ-centered music for Sunday Morning Worship Service. The music ministry through song will prepare the hearts and minds of the congregation to be engaged in a true worship experience. The music ministry will provide music for all musical ministry related functions that take place at the church in addition to Sunday Morning Worship Service.
O God, my heart is steadfast; I will sing and give praise, even with my glory. Awake, lute and harp! I will awaken the dawn. I will praise You, O Lord, among the people, and I will sing praises to You among the nations.
The members of the ministry will use their God given abilities to sing to the Glory of God. The various choirs will sing during Sunday Morning Worship Services and any other services scheduled where their services are needed.

The Pastor’s Aide Ministry provides supportive service to the church, pastor and first family to help foster spiritual growth among the membership. The Pastor’s Aide Ministry serves as a spiritual, financial and emotional support system for the pastor and his family. Everything we do as a ministry is done in an effort to build up the Kingdom of God in line with the Pastor’s mission and vision statements.
And He gave some apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelist, and some pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the body of Christ: Till we All come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.
The Pastor’s Aide’s Ministry mission is to uplift our pastor and his family by constant/continual prayer and to assist them in whatever manner we can and to show care for the members of the church as well.
The ministry members will contact members of the church who we notice are absent for a few weeks from Sunday services. We will let them know we are concerned about them. The ministry will also provide cards and flowers/fruit baskets as necessary for the elderly, bereaved, and visit sick & shut in members to uplift their spirits. During their visits the ministry members will share Sunday school and Bible Study lessons.
The Pastor’s Aide Ministry is open to anyone that is interested in serving in this capacity. We are always looking for new members to join us in service to the Pastor, Membership and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. If you are interested, please contact Sister Brenda Heath, the Pastor or any ministry member.
