Youth For Christ USA released its 2021/2022 annual report, citing a huge spike in meaningful discipleship relationships between its staff and volunteers with youth. The ministry says more than 7,000 youth made informed decisions to follow Christ (a 99% increase from prior year), almost 5,500 youth were in a discipleship relationship (59% increase), and more than 2,400 shared their faith with peers (68% increase). YFC USA has three stars and an “A” transparency grade in the MinistryWatch database, and a donor confidence score of 90.


Charlotte Rescue Mission begins construction on its new men’s facility. 

Center for Health and Hope in Colorado this past June celebrated the first of 12 homes it sponsored in Kenya this year. Partnering with Maua Methodist Hospital in Kenya, the faith-based organization gave $3,000 to pay local Kenyan workers to build a house for Jackeline, 17—whose parents died of AIDS five years ago—and her grandmother, Martha. They will also provide health care for both and an education for Jackeline. Since 2004, Maua Methodist Hospital has built about 360 homes.


Charlotte Rescue Mission in Charlotte, N.C., hoisted steel beams into the air last month as it began construction on a new men’s campus for Rebound, its residential addiction recovery program. CRM has two stars and a “C” transparency grade in the MinistryWatch database, and a donor confidence score of 73.

In July, Eastern European Mission delivered the largest donation of children’s Bibles—over 225,000—to North Macedonia at the government’s request, according to the Christian Post. Last year, the group delivered more than 1.5 million Bibles in over 20 languages to over 30 countries. Eastern European Mission has a C transparency grade in the MinistryWatch database.


Nazarene Health Ministries opened a new maternity wing in its clinic in Wafa, Papua New Guinea, last month. It also installed solar equipment. The maternity clinic provides a place for mothers to give birth in a clean environment with nurses and nurse aids to assist. The facility also provides antenatal care for expecting mothers and counseling and support for expecting and new mothers.
