Ministry Focus

Compassion & Social Welfare Ministries

One of the main reasons Jesus' earthly ministry was so effective was because it was rooted in compassion for those who were marginalized, forgotten, and hurting. We've developed our compassion ministries to follow that example.

From reaching out to ex-gang members to ministries for the disabled, all of our compassion and social welfare ministries are rooted in the gospel — because when compassion is rooted in the gospel, it helps the helps gospel take root.

Use Your Compassion for Others to Share the Gospel

Love in action opens doors for the gospel. And our compassion ministries have created countless opportunities to share Christ with brokenhearted people, many of whom may not have otherwise welcomed us, or our message.

As a result, we've seen lives changed and churches planted — all thanks to the doors opened by compassionate, gospel-centered compassion ministries, such as:

  • Blind Ministries
  • Deaf Ministries
  • Disaster Relief
  • Education Ministries
  • Gang Ministries
  • Orphan Ministries
  • Healthcare Ministries
  • Refugee Relief
  • Small Business Ministries
  • Women's Ministries

If you are passionate about sharing Christ's love with disabled people or at-risk populations, we want to talk to you.

Is God calling you to use your skills on the mission field?
