The "Hospitality Ministry" is one of the many foundational ministries offered by Ocoee. At Ocoee, we place an important emphasis on servanthood and preparing the way for others. Our Hospitality Ministry, which is led by one of our Associate Pastor's Teresa Miller, who serves as a model for preparedness and servanthood. As Director of this ministry, Pastor Teresa and her team has been dedicated to the needs of others evidenced by their heartfelt service toward building the Kingdom of God.
Since 1995, Pastor Teresa has worked and labored in the ministry of hospitality and giving to others. As part of this ministry team, additional volunteers assist Pastor Teresa to offer the highest quality of servant leadership to make others feel incredibly special. Pastor Teresa is gifted in the ministry of hospitality. Scripture reveals to us in Hebrews 6:10: "For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which you have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister." (KJV)
The "Hospitality Ministry" works in conjunction with other ministries and volunteers throughout our church to provide such services as assisting in event planning, food services (meals), and creating themes that works in conjunction with a particular church related event. This ministry is symbolic of the banquet table that God has prepared and spread for each one of us, in that, it speaks of love and preparedness in helping others. As a feature of hospitality, banquets indicate and provide the transformation of a stranger into a guest (Genesis 19:3-14; Luke 5:29) or of an enemy into a covenant partner. Banquets mark important transitional points in a person's life, e.g., Isaac’s weaning day (Genesis 21:8); the weddings of Jacob (Genesis 29:22); Sampson marriage feast (Judges 14:10); and the marriage supper of the Lamb (Revelation 19:9); and the parable of the wedding feast in Matthew 22:2-10. In fact, we are a guest of God's wonderful hospitality. For the world in which we live, along with the air we breathe, is a pure gift from God. In this, we can see Creation and how it expresses God's hospitality.
