Ministries Making a Difference

Phased IN, Mission Eurasia, MAP International, Crown Financial Ministries

Phased IN is a supervised transitional living program in Texas for youth who have aged out of the foster system. A mix between a group home and a Bible school dorm, Phased IN requires residents, ages 18-21, to engage in at least 20 hours of school, employment, or nonprofit volunteering. With a focus on social skills, residents also learn basic life skills, like budgeting, cooking, grocery shopping, and filling out a job application. The structured environment emphasizes rules with mercy and options.  

MAP International is rushing supplies to India as the country suffers from a tragic spike in COVID-19 cases. The nonprofit, a global health organization that sends medical supplies around the world, is organizing shipment of 40 pallets of personal protective equipment to several states in western India. Last week, reported coronavirus cases in the country mounted past 20 million, though numbers are thought to be far higher.  MAP International is one of many nonprofits raising money to provide relief services to India.

Mission Eurasia’s Next Generation leaders are distributing 10,000 food baskets and Scripture resources among needy communities and refugee families as part of their “I Care” refugee assistance program. The outreach launched earlier this month as churches in the former Soviet Union celebrated Orthodox Easter—and also as the area noted the 35th anniversary of the Chernobyl nuclear accident that’s considered one of the worst nuclear disasters in history. Next Generation is a leadership training program to prepare Christian professionals to share the gospel in the workplace.

In 2021, Crown Financial Ministries added four of their studies, plus two in Spanish, to YouVersion for users to access for free, including God Provides, Debt Free Living, Money Date: Who’s the Boss?, and Money Life: Understanding God’s View of Money.
