Missions

You will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth. - Acts 1:8

As a body, we are called to serve Washington D.C. and the Metro area in the practicality of showing care through good deeds and kind words to all. And to have informed engagement with what God is doing in the world, praying for all nations, and a prayerful involvement in the specific missions projects with which we are entrusted.

  • A Grant Foundation: We request, apply for, receive and distribute available funds to approved and proven projects.
  • Managers: We facilitate and oversee approved projects, ensuring they remain sustainable, accountable and profitable.
  • Brokers: We advise people about contribution placements that will produce a high yield in their chosen area of concern and interes.
