Launching the Month of Ministry 2024

Jan 18, 2024

The time has finally come! This February, we’re inviting all ministers and students to take part in the #MonthOfMinistry! Originally kick-started by Rev Jo Royle and Rev Sass Adams in 2023, the #MonthOfMinistry is a month-long social media movement designed to highlight the work of Interfaith Ministers. Its goal is not only to bring your valuable work to the public’s attention but also to create a platform for networking and fostering a sense of community.

It’s an opportunity to articulate more about your personal journey, convictions, and your ministry to your audience. It enables us to build connections and collaborations, making it effortless to discover, follow, and learn more about each other’s work and approaches.

Throughout February, OneSpirit will be amplifying your voice by sharing and reposting your content (please remember to tag us on Instagram & Facebook). 

There’s absolutely no obligation to respond to each prompt, but we strongly encourage you to engage as much as you can. We are excited to see you get involved and cannot wait to learn more about you with your #MonthOfMinistry tags!

Suggested post format…

DAY 1 #MonthOfMinistry #WeAreROSIM #InterfaithMinister and any other hashtags you want to include. Also tag: @BringItToTheAltar & @osmic_onespirit_in_connection. This will allow both Onespirit and OSMIC to share your posts with their followers!

You are more than welcome to respond to the prompts in any way which suits you… a written response; a photograph; a piece of artwork; a video; a poem; etc. You can search the hashtag #MonthOfMinistry on any social media platform to see posts from last year as examples.

Where do I start?

By telling all the OneSpirit interfaith ministers you know about #MonthOfMinistry – the more of us taking part, the greater the impact. By considering the prompts… maybe there are some you’d prefer not to answer, some you can’t wait to get started on, and maybe some other questions of your own that you’d like to cover instead. Decide how you might want to respond to the prompts and whether you might prepare some responses in advance.
