Advancing Native Missions – Worldwide
Advancing Native Missions has been called to seek out, evaluate, and support native missions groups who have a clear and defined evangelical statement of faith, who are open and transparent in their finances, and who are working among unreached people groups. We share information about these native missions with evangelical churches and individuals in North America and other regions of the world who are willing to pray and give for the advancement of God’s Kingdom through these ministries. Visiting native mission leaders work with ANM to declare God’s Word to the churches of North America and other regions and inspire them to be actively involved in missions at home and abroad. Through the coordination of Vision Trips, ANM puts individuals in a unique position to get a first-hand view of the life and spirit of native missions throughout the world. We purpose to be open and transparent before both God and man in the stewardship of the gifts the Lord’s people entrust to ANM.
Compassion International – Worldwide
Compassion International exists as an advocate for children, releasing them from spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty and enabling them to become responsible, fulfilled Christian adults. Founded by Rev. Everett Swanson in 1952, Compassion began providing Korean war orphans with food, shelter, education and health care, as well as Christian training. Today, Compassion helps more than 600,000 children in more than 20 countries.
Our elementary Sunday school classes support Compassion children through weekly offerings designated for that purpose.
Cornerstone Foundation – Honduras
The vision of Cornerstone is one of a diverse community of Christian believers cooperating to provide medical care and a constant, present, on-going hearing of the gospel of Jesus Christ to the people of the north coast of Honduras. In order to accomplish this, a tertiary care referral hospital is the structural hub of various services and outreaches to include public health, chaplaincy, community development, pastoral and Christian leadership training, and perhaps in schools and orphanages. We pray for it to be an outreach that would not only meet physical needs, but which would use the meeting of those needs for an in-roads into peoples’ lives. We pray for the hospital and community surrounding it to be a “city set on a hill that cannot be hidden.” It is our goal that the people who would come to the hospital for medical care, the people who would find employment related to the hospital, and the people who would benefit from other connected services would not only hear the gospel preached, but also see it lived out in the lives of the Christian workers.
