Ministries Making a Difference
Summer of Hope for Native American youth, a summer ‘fan drive’ for the elderly, ministries to the homeless, and more.
Since 2017, Reggie and Ibelsa Stutzman have been running The Prodigal Center in the Bronx neighborhood of Hunts Point, where drugs, prostitution and poverty are rampant. The ministry provides food and clothing to about 3,000 people a month, and shares the hope of Christ. The couple also hosts various outreaches, including skateboard outreaches, outreaches at strip clubs, and night outreaches.
On Eagles’ Wings, a division of Ron Hutchcraft Ministries, wrapped up its Summer of Hope outreach this past weekend, with Native American Christians building relationships and sharing their testimonies on reservations throughout the U.S. Read some of the moving stories of young adults in difficult situations hearing the hope of Christ in OEW’s “Front-Lines Reports.” Ron Hutchcraft Ministries has four stars and an “A” transparency grade in the MinistryWatch database, and a donor confidence score of 90.
