Hospitality Ministry

Hospitality Ministry


The Hospitability Ministry was officially established September 8, 2020.  The Charter officially approved on November 11, 2020.  When the Church reopens, we look forward to utilizing this ministry to its fullest.                            

 Hospitality Ministry Motto:  “Distributing To The Necessity of Saints; Given To Hospitality”:  Romans 12:13    



Hospitality Ministry: This Ministry will provide the best Christian fellowship in accordance with the IBC Covenant, always considering each individual’s requirement and serving with Love and Dignity. We pledge to provide the most helpful Christian services available to our guests, to include providing a welcoming environment of love, acceptance, comfort, support, and care.  We will also work closely with the Pastor and IBC ministries ensuring that the needs of all guests are met with excellence.  In addition, we will support and ensure that each person coming from outside the Metropolitan area and entering Israel Baptist Church feels “GOD’S LOVE”.  Depending on the circumstance, it could also include “Special In-Town” guests.  Usually, most visitors don’t know much about the Washington DC area and definitely don’t know how to get around.  Each ministry member will accommodate every task assigned such as, book hotel accommodations, transportation, sightseeing historical sites and other support areas.  They also commit, through love, humility, dedication, that the guest will feel loved, special, and comfortable.
