OPEN DOOR Ministries
Open Door Ministries was started in April 2018 by Mike and Heather Gross.
Our burden is to strengthen and encourage Bible-believing, gospel-preaching churches across America. Every church has a unique set of needs and we work work closely with them to meet those needs.
For churches that are without a pastor we provide pulpit supply, organizational helps, aid in implementing visitation and discipleship programs, and help the church through the pastoral search process. Our goal is to find each church a pastor that is Biblically qualified and a right fit for the church and community.
Missionary to the Local Church
For churches that are short-handed, we come alongside the pastor for a short time and aid him with a variety of things including: visitation, discipleship classes, training workers, pulpit supply (as needed), and more!
OPEN DOOR Ministries consults with pastors and search committees, sharing fresh ministry ideas that could be implemented in their church. We do not claim to have all the answers, but we know the One who does!
Another way we are available to help churches is through missions conferences, revival meetings, and special services.
Many times a visitor's first impression of a church will determine whether or not they will make a second visit. A church that is unkempt or in disrepair often leaves members feeling discouraged and visitors uneasy. While hands-on projects are not our main focus, we feel they are important and we are equipped to help with projects (including minor building repairs and property maintenance) that will provide a welcoming environment and boost the overall moral of the congregation.
