INTRODUCTION TO THE MINISTRIES
A Ministry is a collective executive. It is responsible for providing public service in a specialized field of government, led by a senior public servant known as “minister”. The verb ‘minister’ is from a Latin word meaning “to serve”. The noun ‘minister’ refers to one who provides a service as an agent of a higher authority. Ministries afford or give things needed by the people to help sustain an acceptable quality of life in the society they serve. They are the practical means through which every member of the society receives freedom, justice and equality in his or her daily life and their existence insures a cohesive, flourishing society that improves and advances, generation after generation, toward the ultimate goal of complete freedom, justice and equality for all persons, regardless of creed or class or color.
