Part of our mission is to encourage the body of Christ to reach out to their neighbors, family, and friends who are struggling physically, emotionally and spiritually; and to encourage pastors and leaders as they minister to their congregations and communities.
To Heal the Hurting.
The second part of our mission is to equip pastors, churches and organizations in areas where we minister with leadership skills training, equipment and supplies, so they can more effectively reach the needy in their spheres of influence. This is accomplished through short-term missions teams using their skills & passion on the mission field.
To Equip the Body of Christ.
The third part of our mission after Encouraging and Equipping, is to Engage the church to take action in reaching out beyond the walls of their church, to the lost in their communities, in their region, and to the Church around the world, by supporting, sending, and going.
To Discover and Fulfill Their Destiny.
Your partnership and support will enable us to continue to make a difference in the lives of the people of Central America by assisting the ministries and organizations in Central America with needed equipment, supplies and training to be more effective in touching the lives of their people.
Together, as our partners in ministry, we can impact many lives for the Kingdom of God!
