MONTHLY OUTREACH INITIATIVES

SHILOH BAPTIST CHURCH OUTREACH MINISTRY

The Outreach Ministry is a collaborative effort between all the ministries of Shiloh Baptist Church of Landover. A Deacon or Minister is assigned by the Pastor to be the coordinator of the ministry. A ministry will be assigned a month during the year to take the lead on an outreach activity and at least 2-4 other ministries will be assigned to assist the lead ministry in carrying out its outreach activity. The intent is to get all of Shiloh involved in participating in an outreach activity in the community during the year.
