We don't just want to send support overseas, but we want to plant intentional missionaries right here in our own city, as well. Jody and Kristine McPhearson serve with Apartment Life, whose mission is to radically transform lives in apartment communities by making Christ known.

This is not just someone we support, but a family that serves as a ministry partner on every trip that we take to Jamaica.

International Justice Mission
Ghana, Africa

International Justice Mission is a global organization that protects the poor from violence throughout the developing world. IJM partners with local authorities to rescue victims of violence, bring criminals to justice, restore survivors, and strengthen justice systems. 

We support a field office for IJM located in Ghana, Africa whose sole focus is to eliminate child slavery in and around Lake Volta, where children are forced to work for no pay, treated poorly and sometimes die due to the harshness of the conditions there.
