Where We Serve
We believe God, through Jesus, is in the business of redemption. He desires to heal the broken, give hope to the hopeless, and provide liberation for the oppressed. We also believe he is writing this story-of-redemption-through-Jesus not simply in our city but throughout the entire world, AND that we have the privilege and responsibility to participate. Compelled by this reality, we choose to serve Jesus not just here at home but abroad as well. Here’s a snapshot:
Community Adoption and Partnership: Njuruta, Kenya
In 2008, working with Food for the Hungry International , we started an ongoing relationship and commitment to a community in Kenya. Njuruta is an incredibly under-resourced community affected by HIV/AIDS, drought, and poverty. Despite these conditions, our friends have an amazing spirit of hope, a desire to educate and train their children, and a plan for the future.
- Child Sponsorship through FH (click to see children you can sponsor from Njuruta!)
- Short-term teams to train, encourage, and empower
- Special projects, such as tree planting, purchasing goats, etc.
Servants: Mark and Heidi (Bangladesh)
Primarily through aviation and in partnership with MAF, Mark and Heidi assist in relief and development efforts, thus seeking to cultivate relationships of hope and grace.
Servant: Anita Betancourt (Honduras)
After spending some time in Honduras serving with a non-profit called The Children's Home Project (TCHP), which was started by our very own Jenny Kast, Anita began to hear a whispering voice that would not let Honduras get out of her mind. What began as a faint whisper eventually became a clear calling; and in the Fall of 2014, Anita left her job, sold her car, put her house up for rent, and moved to Honduras. After season of serving with TCHP, Anita is now working with an organization called Sparrow Missions to demonstrate the self-giving love of God. Why? "Because he first loved us" (1 John 4:19).
