The Care Fund invests in ministry which serves the most urgent physical and spiritual needs locally and globally. If you would like to give above and beyond your regular giving to the church toward these needs, we encourage you to give to the Care Fund. NOTE: The Care Fund includes ministry aimed at addressing crisis in its many forms.
We are surrounded by people with urgent physical and spiritual needs in greater Washington, D.C. Individuals and families who need food or medical care. Schools and communities that need resources. And regardless of the physical need, every single person’s greatest need is spiritual: a relationship with God through Jesus.
We are constantly ministering to these needs across greater Washington, DC. With the historic overturning of Roe v Wade, we want to be sure we are doing all we can to protect the most vulnerable women and their babies by helping those on the front lines in pregnancy centers, providing wrap-around care for expecting and new moms, and other new initiatives. Along the way, we are sharing the good news of God’s love in Jesus.
The physical needs described above are oftentimes more extreme in places around the world, where people may be starving or may not have any access to clean water, medical care, or education. The spiritual need for the gospel is oftentimes also greater because there are so many places filled with millions of people who are unreached (meaning they currently have no access to the gospel).
We are continually engaging in wise, creative ministry amidst these needs around the world. For example, in one part of South Asia, we are addressing needs for agriculture, education, and rescue while proclaiming the gospel and planting churches among extremely unreached people in a rural setting. Many have come to faith in Christ through this daring ministry, and quite a few of those new believers are now evangelists and church planters who are persevering through persecution despite occurrences of martyrdom. This effort is one among many that we are implementing through resources from the Care Fund, including global efforts in response to COVID-19 (for example, we are currently engaging in work among IDP and refugee families in Central Asia amidst this crisis).
