This volunteer opportunity is a way for pastors to connect the heart of their congregation to the community, for teachers to show students how to give without expectations, for moms and dads to publicly demonstrate compassion to their children, and for youth pastors to teach mercy, worship and prayer. It’s not about feeding the poor; it’s about being a blessing to your neighbor. A bag of chips, some cheese crackers, a loaf of raisin bread, a plush toy and some candy won’t feed a needy family, but it can open a door to someone poor in spirit. Wealthy or destitute, we all can use prayer and someone to share our burdens with. A divorce, a wayward child, disease or financial needs can weigh heavily on someone behind closed doors. A "Bag of Blessing” can open that door and then a heartfelt prayer can bring hope and demonstrate that their neighbor does care. For more information about the "Bag a Blessing" or if you are wanting to set one up, please contact us through our website using this link:

The foundation stone of our ministry was the concept of providing material support to other ministries so that they could utilize more of their finances, time and energy on ministering to those they are called to serve. For instance, a ministry that houses and ministers to the homeless would need a building, food, clothing, beds, etc., but their true ministry is to give encouragement and speak healing into the broken lives they serve. If they have to spend too much time or money collecting the material goods they need, they, in turn, neglect or spend less time ministering to the people. Or a small church may want to reach out to their neighborhood, but because they are small they may lack the finances to purchase supplies to do so. If available, we would provide them resources without cost. We have been gifted with the knowledge, experience, faith and anointing to realize that there are many resources that are often overlooked or cast aside by individuals or businesses that are valuable for ministry. It is this that guides our thinking when we are offered various donated goods. One thing we do not do is search out items. We only have what God provides. The phone rings, we answer and usually, say, ”Yes!” We can do that based on our knowledge of the ministries we serve and their individual needs. Apart from that, a ministry may call needing a particular item and again because of past experience or the unction of the Holy Spirit we may give them direction as to where it may be found. In over a decade, we have had many diverse items given to us, from semi-loads of new sinks and toilets, to buildings and homes, vehicles, and tons of food and clothing.
When we meet someone new?an individual, a ministry leader or a pastor?and we connect with them in heart, spirit, purpose and goals, it births a relationship. That relationship is about sharing resources, experience, knowledge, material goods and even other relationships, not necessarily equally but equitably. Then, through teamwork we learn how to serve one another, build up one another, communicate with one another, overcome differences, offenses, strengths and weaknesses. In the process, bonds of purpose and trust are formed and the network?the Kingdom of God?is expanded.
