Military Ministry

This ministry serves active duty personnel, veterans, and military families in: prayer, family assistance, hospital visitation, nursing homes, and those veterans in hospice care. A special service is set  aside to recognize, honor, and thank our active duty servicemen and women, our veterans who have served, and those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.  Additionally, we send our military men and women care packages, letting them know that we love them and appreciate their commitment to the service of our country.  Countless soldiers returning from battle, have suffered from what is now called Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), caused by exposure to constant traumatic events. In 1 Samuel 30, when David and his men returned from battle and found their city ransacked and families kidnapped, they experienced full-blown PTSD. Healing came as David sought the Lord in prayer and stepped out with God’s anointing to help his men recover everything.  This is the heart of the EBC Military Ministry. One by one we will encounter wounded warriors and allow God’s love to bring healing. Isaiah 41:13 – “For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.”

Canvassing Ministry

The Canvassing Ministry consist of volunteers from Ebenezer’s congregation who want to spread the gospel throughout the community.  It is the ministry’s mission to inform our community about us and invite them to our worship service. Members go out into the community to pass out information regarding various activities at the church, i.e., Vacation Bible School, Revivals, Community Day, and special Sundays. The number one goal of the ministry is to reach the unchurched with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  (I am the door: by me if any man enters in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.  John 10:9) (KJV).

Homeless Ministry

Ebenezer Baptist Church participates in Hampton’s Ecumenical Lodging and Provisions (H.E.L.P.), “a Night’s Welcome” program.  This ministry provides to the homeless and street people respite from the cold in a very simple, welcoming, consistent fashion. It is their goal to reduce the vulnerability of people to homelessness and poverty by empowering them with the means to achieve their own self sufficiency.  We provide overnight shelter and food for seven evenings and mornings during the coldest winter months (opening our doors on Saturday night through the next Saturday morning from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m.).  We provide volunteers to pick up supplies, provide meals for our guests, and provide spiritual fellowship.

Jail Ministry

This ministry is made up of volunteer members of the church who are committed to spread the gospel to incarcerated youth in our area. The mission is to reach out to youth offenders to enlighten them on the path to a Christian life. Christian principles such as loving one another, forgiveness, faith, an obedience to God’s word are introduced. We introduce ourselves, open the session with a word of prayer, and distribute bibles to those who would like one. Participants are encouraged to take part in an open discussion on a variety of topics. A new topic is introduced at each session; subjects are taken from the resource manual from Straight Ahead Ministries. During the hour-long session, youth are encouraged to offer their thoughts. Facilitators offer positive feedback and share their real-life experiences that related to the scriptures.

Blessing of Cards


Mozelle Coleman


This ministry consists of wise and trusted counselors who empower each other in a relational experience by helping the mentoring partner discover and interpret God’s activity in his/her life and conforms his/her life to God’s director. We provide a good model, asking probing questions and offering encouragement. We provide mentoring for teens ages 13-18, many of whom are angry and in trouble with the law, their schools, and their families. In most cases, this anger is a defense mechanism to hide silent fear, hurt, or rejection. We ask for their life stories, listen to what interests them, look for common interests, receptivity to new ideas, and desire for spiritual growth. In today’s society, there seems to be more hurt than hope and more pain than peace. Teens are looking for answers to their problem sand for a life with real meaning.

Nursing Home Ministry

The mission of the Nursing Home Ministry is to extend the love of God to those confined to nursing care facilities by sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ through praise, worship and the preached word. This ministry provides encouragement and support for those caring for the elderly and the infirm in long-term care facilities. We conduct monthly “church services” which are designed to encourage the believers in the facility in their faith in Jesus Christ and to allow others to see Christian fellowship focused on the grace and mercy of the Gospel of our Lord. Our format is simple: we minister through praise and worship and our praise dancers dance like “King David.” We sing familiar and traditional gospel hymns with residents and a short, relevant sermon is shared from the heart.

Exodus Substance Abuse

This Christ-centered ministry help people achieve freedom fro alcoholism, drug abuse, and other life-dominating behaviors. Unlike secular recovery groups, we utilize biblical principles to help people overcome the guilt, frustration, hopelessness, fear and shame associated with these destructive lifestyles. We provide counseling, encouragement, and a substance free life. Our goal is to allow Jesus to become the guiding influence in individuals lives and lead them to deliverance.

Church Transportation

This ministry is operated under the general supervision of the Trustees. It is designed to provide transport service to members of the church to and from Christ-centered activities. It is a ministry of evangelistic outreach to the immediate and larger community in the Hampton/Newport News area. We seek to offer a place to serve God by being an extension of God’s love, ministering to children and their families while providing safe transportation to and from the church.
