Missions

Haiti

We believe every disciple must mature into serving others.

Jesus spent time teaching his disciples to learn to live as God intended. THEN... Jesus sent his disciples out to live what they learned through serving the church (other believers) and through serving the world (the poor, the afflicted, the abused, the hurt, the lonely, the forgotten, the outsiders).

Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere.

We have undertaken two initiatives to improve the lives of our Haitian family.

1. On the Ground

We send a "servant team"- comprised of students and adults - to Haiti each year. We partner with St. Joseph's Home for Boys outside of Port-au-Prince, Haiti through the organization Hearts with Haiti. Our journey includes service at the Mother Teresa Children's Hospital, the Sisters of Mercy Home for the Destitute and Dying, and the Wings of Hope home for physically and mentally challenged children, among other activities.

2. In Our Arms

Our high school students have adopted Steve, who lives at Wings of Hope, and provide him monthly support. You'll get to meet Steve when you go with us!

Our Kids in Christ children's ministry has also adopted a child in Haiti, Ronaldson, who lives in Jacmel and attends the Trinity School run by the St. Joseph's family.
