We are convinced that others in our community are serving Jesus Christ in powerful ways. We are equally convinced that our ministry cannot serve as directly or as powerfully in certain areas of our community, or in certain areas of ministry. We praise God for ministry partners that are involved in His Kingdom work, and are honored to invest time, energy, finances and support in these ministries. Therefore, we would like to briefly introduce you to several of our ministry partners. Check out their websites, and ministry descriptions, and consider how God may be calling you to join them as well.
