Charities

Compassion International

Compassion International exists as a Christian child advocacy ministry that releases children from spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty and enables them to become responsible, fulfilled Christian adults.

Founded by the 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 1.2 million children in 26 countries

 

Teach to Transform

The idea for Teach to Transform came from Dr. Tom McKechnie, an ER doctor for over 25 years.  He has embraced the new philosophy of short-term mission trips to “go and teach” rather than “go and do.”  Dr. McKechnie has several years of hands-on experience teaching others to perform medical procedures in third world countries.  By teaching local pastors and leaders to perform basic medical skills, Dr. McKechnie saw the impact that teaching others can have on the health and strength of a community.  Dr. McKechnie saw that by teaching others basic medical procedures, communities and the lives of people were transformed.

 

College Golf Fellowship

We want you to understand what a real relationship with God looks like and how it’s different from what most people think of when they hear the word, “religion.”

Whether you’ve grown up in the church or don’t come from a religious background at all, we want you to see the fullness of life that God offers us in a relationship with Him.  Our activities provide a fun and safe environment for people to get how this happens.

 

YoungLife

Young Life doesn’t start with a program. It starts with adults who are concerned enough about kids to go to them, on their turf and in their culture, building bridges of authentic friendship. These relationships don’t happen overnight — they take time, patience, trust and consistency.

So Young Life leaders log many hours with kids — where they are, as they are. We listen to their stories and learn what’s important to them because we genuinely care about their joys, triumphs, heartaches and setbacks.

We believe in the power of presence. Kids’ lives are dramatically impacted when caring adults come alongside them, sharing God’s love with them. Because their Young Life leader believes in them, they begin to see that their lives have great worth, meaning and purpose.

This is the first step of a lifelong journey; the choices they make today, based upon God’s love for them, will impact future decisions … careers chosen, marriages formed and families raised. All ripples from the time when a Young Life leader took time to reach out and enter their world.
