Alliance Defending Freedom

Alliance Defending Freedom is an alliance-building legal organization that advocates for the right of people to freely live out their faith. Recognizing the need for a strong, coordinated legal defense against growing attacks on religious freedom, more than 30 prominent Christian leaders launched Alliance Defending Freedom in 1994. Over the past 20 years, this unique legal organization has brought together thousands of Christian attorneys and like-minded organizations that work tirelessly to advocate for the right of people to freely live out their faith in America and around the world. Unlike any other legal organization, Alliance Defending Freedom employs a unique combination of strategy, training, funding, and litigation to empower its allies and achieve victory for religious freedom. We have been supporting this ministry since 2013 and are thankful for the great work they are doing.

Houses of Home International - Guatemala Orphanage

"We named the place 'House of Hope' simply because the word "hope" carries aspirations. Hope is something that you never see, but you know is there. There are kids here are throwaways, they're forgotten, and they’re abused. What gives them life is hope. Hope for a better future and hope for a family of their own. Here they are able to sit at dinner with a mother and a father. They've never done that in their whole lives." (Houses of Hope International)

People for Missions and Houses of Hope International was founded in 1987. Their mission is to bring hope to a hurting world by nurturing potential through family significance. Their vision is to use a family model having fewer children, with a mother and father instead of “warehouse style” orphanages. They are raising leaders with the capacity to change their world for good through education, training and the nurture provided by a loving family. There are there are currently over 30 homes for children in eight countries around the world. Some of theses nations are; Guatemala, India, Uganda, Burma / Myanmar, Thailand, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. Through Orphanages, schools and other outreaches Houses of hope and People for Missions are directly caring for over 500 children worldwide. With several thousand more being helped through schooling and other programs.

Our church has taken groups on short-term mission trip to Guatemala in 2004, 2006 and 2008. This is a great opportunity for adults and teens to change the lives of others as well as their own. A detailed report of our trips is posted on our church web site. We have been supporting this ministry since 2004 and are thankful for the great work they are doing.

Long Island Youth Mentoring

It is the goal of Long Island Youth Mentoring, to assist the Church in her God given task of ministry to the community, specifically their orphaned and vulnerable young people. This wonderful work began in 1981. We all have a picture in our minds of the type of child that Youth Mentoring works with. We see them in the news and hanging out on street corners. We call them "troubled teens" or "at-risk kids." However, many other children who are common to Youth Mentoring are unseen, unnoticed, withdrawn and too often friendless. God sees all these children and calls them "Mine."

A Father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in His Holy dwelling. (Psalm 68:5)

God loves these kids and is concerned about them. He is sending His people to go to them, to express His love and to show them the way out of multi-generational bondage.

God spoke to Moses from a bush. "I have seen the misery of my people in Egypt. I am concerned about their suffering. So I have come down to rescue them… I am sending you." (Exodus 3: 7 & 9)

Children growing up in very difficult circumstances need to experience love that is expressed over time. Our mentors spend 2-4 hours with these children each week. The consistency of this commitment speaks loudly. It says, "You are valuable. What you think about and the things that bother you are important." It also gives the mentor the ability to interact with the child in circumstances that cannot be planned into a curriculum. "Why did you let that driver in? Why didn't you honk and curse him out?" You cannot schedule quality time or teachable moments. However, when kids receive a few hours with a consistent mentor on a weekly basis, these God-inspired moments show up unannounced. While ministry has visited our church for many years, we began supporting them monthly in 2008 and are thankful for the great work they are doing.

Stan & Heather in Israel

Stan (Shmuel), Heather (Chaya) and their family of five children have lived in Israel, since 1991. Since that time they have lived in a city outside of Tel Aviv. In 2001 a congregation was birthed in their city with the goal of bringing the awesome love of the God of Israel to His broken hearted and hurting people. The theme scripture has been Isaiah 61:1

"The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound."

The emphasis in the fellowship has always been on worship, intercession, and personal discipleship. Numerous people have come to Messiah and have been taught. Intercession continually goes up to bring God’s cleansing and blessing on all aspects of the city. Over a year ago, the fellowship opened its doors to help the community in humanitarian aid. Currently over 80 families receive food and clothing twice a month. Other projects are to come. Should not the believing community use their faith and love to meet human needs, thus exhibiting the reality of Messiah? We have been supporting the work of this ministry since 2004 and we are thankful for the great work they are doing.
