2. Secure and Share RESOURCES
a. Network with other ministries and businesses
b. Promote monthly “Ministry Projects” encouraging church members to donate small items that make a BIG difference! Examples Include:
1) Back to School Supply Project and Rallies (Donate School Supplies)
2) “Christ The Great Gift Christmas” Toy Drive (Donate Toys)
3) “Hallelujah Party” – Halloween Alternative Neighborhood Outreach (Donate Candy, Games and Craft Supplies)
4) “Boxes of Love” Thanksgiving Dinners (Full Thanksgiving Dinners Donated)
5) “Heart for the Homeless” Valentine’s Day Project (Donate Homemade Cookies, Cards, Toiletries) AND several other monthly projects
6) MINISTRY PROJECT END RESULTS:
a) Entire families, including children, participate in missions and grow in understanding of the area’s needs
b) Resources (supplies, donations, goods) are distributed with a Christian Witness by a ministry that can continue spiritual care to those ministered to.
KEY: With limited resources, Why donate to organizations that meet physical needs only, and not spiritual as well?
c. Secure “Permanent” resources to be shared within the body of Christ
1) Currently we have a van loaded with carnival games and a bouncer that we use to empower urban ministries to have evangelistic outreaches
2) We need a U-Haul type of truck, more supplies and also a bus to transport kids to our activities and to help other ministries with their needs
3) Eventually, a Resource Center will be needed
