Ministries Making a Difference

Adult & Teen Challenge, Bibles for China, American Bible Society, Forgotten Missionaries International, Billy Graham Evangelistic Association

Forgotten Missionaries International (FMI), an indigenous church planting nonprofit, hosted a pastor’s conference in Kenya in March to connect local pastors, elders, and teachers and to combat false teaching that has permeated the area.

Hope Homes of the Ozarks, a ministry of Adult & Teen Challenge, in Springfield, Missouri, helps former inmates secure jobs and reintegrate into society through its 9-month program. Adult & Teen Challenge has one star and an “A” transparency grade on the MinistryWatch database, and a 75 donor confidence score. 

The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association has deployed another Rapid Response Team of crisis-trained chaplains to Eurasia, this time to Poland to provide spiritual and emotional care to Ukrainians forced to flee their homes due to war. The United Nations estimates that 12 million people have been displaced, and Poland has taken in more than three million refugees. U.S.-based chaplains have also trained more than 100 Ukrainians to serve as chaplains in Ukraine and surrounding countries. BGEA has three stars and a “C” transparency grade on the MinistryWatch database, and a 40 donor confidence score. 

Bibles for China is testing an audio Bible player in five Chinese provinces in an effort to work around a new law banning unapproved religious content from the Internet. The small devices are loud enough for four to five people to gather around and listen. 

The American Bible Society’s Faith and Liberty Discovery Center has named Rob Wonderling as its new executive director. Wonderling will join the Center—a museum that chronicles the role of faith, hope, and love in the founding of the United States and opened in historic Philadelphia in 2021—in July. He previously worked as CEO of the Chamber of Commerce for Greater Philadelphia as well as a Pennsylvania state senator. American Bible Society has one star and an “A” transparency grade in the MinistryWatch database, and an 85 donor confidence score.
