Ministries We Support
We seek to practice what the Apostle James called "true religion." To this end, we strive to support many widows and orphans in very tangible ways. We couple such humanitarian support with support for ministries that help advance the Father's will on earth. Here are a few of the ministries and projects we love.
Hands to the Land
Many years ago, we had the opportunity to join in the inception of Hands to the Land. To this day, we continue to participate in this unique and life-changing experience in the land of Israel. Twice a year, members of our congregation join with a small group of believers from around the world to spend three weeks studying, building relationships, and seeing what God is doing in Israel.
Women of Valor
We've been honored to support, speak at, and help facilitate many events on behalf of Women of Valor, a Hebraic ministry focused on supporting women in the roles within the Body.
"I Am Israel"
A couple of our deacons and dear friends, David and Natalie Kiern, produced the award-winning documentary "I Am Israel." We've been extraordinarily blessed to see how this film continues to change countless lives worldwide.
The Aliyah Return Center
We love being able to support our friends at the Aliyah Return Center as they seek to provide a haven for Jews making Aliyah.
Our lifelong friends (and former Middle Tennesseans), the Wallers, continue to make a difference in Israel. We frequently work with HaYovel on efforts in Middle Tennessee, and many within our congregation have participated in HaYovel's ministry opportunities — both in the U.S. and Israel.
Middle Tennessee Tres Dias
We've been extraordinarily blessed to be part of Tres Dias, an interdenominational retreat focused on spiritual renewal, which is hosted every spring and fall.
Life Challenge International — India
We've been blessed to have the opportunity to support Life Challenge International's mission in India. Together, we were able to provide a clean drinking water well to the AIDs widows and orphans at one of their ministry centers.
Child of God Rescue Mission — Kenya
This independent Sabbath-keeping orphanage and school is located in Ogembo, Kenya. They provide a home to more than 30 orphans. Members of our congregation have worked to provide them with a clean drinking water well for their community.
Casa Shalom Orphanage — Guatemala
Casa Shalom provides Christ-focused care for hundreds of orphaned, abandoned, and at-risk children in Guatemala.
