Local & Global Missions.
“In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:16
We believe by focusing our resources on a few rather than many, our overall involvement will be more personal and our impact will be greater. To engage locally and globally through our partner organizations that meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of the vulnerable, displaced, and unreached in Jesus’ name. To see people experience transformational development and intentional, effective discipleship.
We align our compassion engagement under “causes” where we are "Glocal" in our focus, partnering in our efforts, and strategic in our priorities. With the intentional overlap of "causes" between our local & global partners, we desiring mutually beneficial learning and equipping. We can learn from our global partners and bring our understanding back to our local partners, and conversely so we can bring our local partner understanding to our global partners.
