Ministries Making a Difference
The Church of Christ nonprofit Bread of Life Humanitarian Effort is partnering with local-area churches in Mayfield, Kentucky, to build 30 tiny homes for displaced residents after a tornado leveled their community in December 2021. Each home will be about 500 square feet with a kitchen, bathroom, and two bedrooms, according to Christian Chronicle.
Alive in Christ, an Assemblies of God ministry based in Boston, offers mentorship and training for people impacted by same-sex attraction and gender dysphoria, including strugglers, family members, pastors, and church leadership. In 2021, they held 27 one-on-one mentoring sessions, led 77 support group gatherings, hosted 23 equipping meetings, and taught 10 training sessions on how to love well those who identify as LGBTQ+ without compromising the gospel.
Slavic Gospel Association (SGA) is partnering with hundreds of churches in Ukraine and surrounding countries to help Ukrainian refugees—mostly, women and children separated from their husbands and fathers as they fled the Russian invasion. Churches in Poland, where officials expect hundreds of thousands of Ukrainian refugees, are replacing pews with temporary beds and about 90 Polish churches in SGA’s network are providing meals, blankets, clothes, and medicines.
