Introduction

While its earliest activity attempt dates so far back as 2016, the likeChrist Ministries was only incorporated into a legal entity (Non Profit Company – reg# 2020 / 454453 / 08) in June 2020. The ministry seeks to help add truer value to Christians’ earthly pilgrimage through the creation (or fostering the creation thereof) of the “Christian-wholesome” quality. The ministry is looking to achieve this by creating, empowering/encouraging the creation of Christian wholesome services and goods. These are value adding services and goods that believers have (in favor of holiness) had to use with great exercise of caution or utterly turned away from, due to the level compromise in their composition or procurement. Services and goods that can ideally be of valid value if produced or rendered by evangelical Christians (those after God’s own heart through Christ).

The simple goal being to help foster resource while evading offense (that may lead to stumbling or vexation amongst other disagreeable ends) – and thereby promote holiness, which is well pleasing the Godhead. Thus serving the young as well as the old in Christ – as well as empowering Churches and ministries, to the glory of God.

And because I, Kervin (the founding director), was already saying with brother Watchman Nee when the work was first laid onto my heart back in 2016, that “I do not consecrate myself to be a missionary or a preacher. but that I consecrate myself to God to do His will where I am, be it in school, office, or kitchen, or wherever He may, in His wisdom, send me.” I then take it it is His will that the coal that caught fire back then burns hitherto.

The General Approach

Until lately, I (Kervin) have created most content as well as build the web infrastructures by myself, however with increased resources, the Ministry is looking to harness the help of as many  justifiable skilled assistance as possible across all ministerial avenues. To employ hired skilled labour whenever we can safely get away with – such as hired animators, academic book writing and the likes who will only proceed as per blue prints we supply. Yes where assistance is outsourced, ours shall be to ensure that only workmanship fostering the Christian quality amongst other Christian virtues gets authorized. Much effort to promote the work so far as possible shall be made. But most of all, we should ever seek to proceed only as per the gracing of the Lord God of George Muller (just as Elisha sought that of Elijah). Yes much  praying shall be ascertained – to the end that there should be grace in store against the time of every need.

Conclusion

While we, for maximized efficiency’s sake, hope to eat our bread from the same work (as we reckon men such as George Muller did), we are in earnest on the work and honestly believe that these areas of focus are indeed material concerns. That being expended towards their addressing should be much pleasing to the Father than to be expended on a secular business for the sole reason of affording our bread. Else we honesty would instead cheerfully seek to explore justifiable secular business so far as providence would permit. But we are persuaded that only sound Christians can effectively fill these gap types. May read the fuller story on the blog post here.
