Abstract
The local church can plan for ministry specific to its context when it understands its community setting. Implementation of ministry can follow different models for ministry, such as vocational, project and corporate models. The methods of research for this project include sociological and demographic studies of a community. The findings are related to models for ministry based on the stories of Paul, Timothy, and Epaphroditus found in Philippians 2. The study shows how a local church can use different models of ministry to minister effectively to the church's unique context.
