We Support…

“We love because God first loved us.” (1 John 4.19, NIV)

“Because we loved you, we were delighted to share with you not only the good news of God but our lives as well.” (1 Thessalonians 2.8, NIV)

With such things in mind, we love to offer whatever we can to support a variety of people and projects, located both near and far, that express God’s heart for this broken world.

We’ve listed a few below.
