Kindling Ministry

What does a spark need to catch fire?

It’s not the big log in the middle. It’s the small sticks at the base of the pile. They’re called kindling.

Three years ago, we launched the Spark Tank community service initiative, and we did some incredible work! But as the years went by, the projects got larger in scope, yet fewer in total.

So to evolve Spark Tank into something bigger, we’re going smaller. This is the Kindling Ministry.

It's simple, random acts of love we can do in the moment in our communities, small in size but immeasurable in impact: Buy somebody's groceries. Tip a server extra.

No more project proposals. No more lengthy paper work. Just serving as we are called.

How many random acts of love can we do in our community?
