Every person on this earth matters to God.
Communities aren’t changed by programs, but by relationships. Our strategy for missions is to build and support relationships that inspire change. We build relationships by volunteering with our local mission partners, and support relationships worldwide by giving to global partners.
Protecting vulnerable people.
Caring for the vulnerable is a central theme through the Bible. It’s essential to loving our neighbors—the ones next door and the ones on the other side of the world.
Help people find a way out of poverty.
Poverty is the result of brokenness. It’s not just about possessions. It’s also about relationships, purpose, and hope. But when people see themselves and their resources as God sees them, it changes everything.
Support people in crisis.
When a crisis hits, someone’s world is shattered. It’s all they can do to focus on immediate needs like food, water, clothing, and shelter. And when another person comes alongside them to provide relief by meeting those needs and showing the love of Christ, restoration can begin.
