The driving force for outreach is Matthew 9:36-38: But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. Then He said to His disciples, "The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest." Our goal is to encourage men, women, boys & girls to become laborers sent out into the harvest. God has graciously allowed us to be part of what He is doing in our city, country and world. We have been given the privilege to partner with and support churches and organizations –all to make disciples of Jesus Christ. Whether mentoring at-risk children, feeding the homeless or embracing the recovered, we have opportunities to be ministers of reconciliation and spread the good news of the gospel.
