In the New Testament, we see the ministry of Christ was in service to God and mankind. He set the pattern, of how we are to serve one another, in love and obedience to God's word.
All of us, that are Christians, have a ministry God has foreordained for us to complete. The word ministry is from the Greek word diakoneo.
It means to serve another as a slave would do. The word of God commands us in Matthew 28:19-20 and it says, “go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
We should all be ministering to people's needs with love and humility on behalf of our Savior. The men and women on this list certainly spent their days fulfilling this commandment. This list is not meant to be a top 10 or best of, it’s just a list of some influential men and women of the 20th century.
