Local ministry partners

In addition to supporting ministry around the world, we work with local organizations to address needs in our own community and the surrounding area. Help us build homes through Habitat for Humanity, befriend youth through Kinship, and much more!

We also have "glocal" opportunities that can help you "think global, act local."
