Become a Ministry Partner

Do you or your church, Bible study, Christian group, or would you want to build God’s Kingdom and work towards social justice? Do you want to serve the poor, marginalized, or oppressed? Do you have a heart for missions and outreach, but you cannot raise support or travel overseas? Our organization is the place for you. We offer short-term projects and long-term opportunities.
