Karpos Ministries started as a christian print/web design company back in the mid 90’s known as “Charisma Graphics“.
Within a few years, it grew to a support ministry offering far more than design services. It became a para-church ministry offering Tech Support, AV Training, and continued print/web design and consultation services.
When worship leading and ministering at christian fellowships, special events, and coffee houses (which spun off from the Karpos Coffee House in the late 90’s) became part of the requested services, the name was changed to Karpos Ministries. Karpos Ministries was called to minister all over New England (MA, RI, VT, ME) in music, exhortation, & teaching.
Shofarwatchmen was founded on 2017
Agape Home Fellowship (home fellowship church) was founded in 2019
Dave was ordained as a minister in May of 2020 and Karpos Ministries was awarded a Charter of Ministry.
Dave became a certified NRA Pistol Instructor in 2020 and teaches in and out of homes.
Where does the name come from?
Kαρπoς is the greek word translated as fruit in John 15:16 and it means the “fruit” (as the result) of labor or intent.
“You did not choose Me but I chose you, and appointed you that you would go and bear fruit, and that your fruit would remain, so that whatever you ask of the Father in My name He may give to you.”
This name, because of the verse and context it comes from, reminds me that while we are empowered by the Spirit of God to do the works set before us, we still must “will” to do them, and of course assumes that there will be works
(James 2:18 “But someone may well say, “You have faith and I have works; show me your faith without the works, and I will show you my faith by my works.“)
