There are many para-church ministries active today. They come in a variety of sizes and purposes. Some of the larger
ones include Samaritans Purse, The Salvation Army, and CRU (formerly known as Campus Crusade for Christ.) And
there are many smaller ministries that may have only a few staff members. They may be evangelistic, educational, or
serve any number of other purposes. Choose any three to research and report on. They should all be very different in
size and purpose. You will need to interview someone from each organization as well as doing online research. These
will be three separate reports. In each report you should include anything you found interesting about that particular
ministry. Each report should be at least 600 words in length and should include at least the following:
a. Name of the organization.
b. When and how it was founded.
c. What ministry purposes does it serve?
d. How large is their staff?
e. How do they raise the money needed for operation?
f. What do they see as their greatest contribution to Kingdom building?
g. What do they see as their greatest challenges or obstacles?
