Ministries Making a Difference

Tiny houses, video game ministry, foster care, Heart4Iran, and World Mission

Meridian Baptist Church in El Cajon, California, is partnering with a nonprofit housing advocacy group, the city, and a social service agency to host a pilot housing program for homeless single mothers and their children. Meridian Village will house six tiny cottages—96 square feet each—for residents chosen to participate (plus one extra for social workers and security).

A student at Nazarene Theological College in Manchester, England, hosted an evangelistic video game tournament—including games like FIFA and Mario Kart—earlier this month as part of his ministry to teens. Volunteers shared the Gospel, and 70 participants made decisions to become Christians. 

Father’s Heart, part of the Assembly of God’s Ohio Ministry Network, trains churches in developing outreaches for children and families in the foster care system. Training includes resources in becoming and/or supporting foster families, and hosting respite events to provide breaks for foster parents. The ministry focuses on prevention, intervention, and transition. 

Heart4Iran, a media ministry, is launching a new initiative Heart4Afghanistan to provide Christians in Afghanistan—labeled by Open Doors as the most dangerous country for believers—with access to sermons and Christian material in their own language. 

World Mission is building a school for children of the isolated Mru people in Bangladesh, where human traffickers have been kidnapping children while parents are away working. The school provides training for students while also giving them security during the day. The Mru people do not have a written language, so World Mission is using its solar-powered audio Bible.
