About Us



Empower Ministry
The goal of Empower Ministry is to provide materials to empower people to live their God-given potential. We believe every believer has been created to do the good works that God has gifted them for. We want to see every person in ministry spreading the love of God.  Two scriptures state what the theme of Empower Ministry is.

For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength (empowers me). Philippians 4:13 (NLT)

For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. Ephesians 2:9 (NLT)
