Grant Winners for 2022

Every Generation Ministries (EGM)

New friends…

EGM is leading the way helping churches to develop curricula for building their children’s ministry. Many of their staff are being trained in dealing with sensory needs, high functioning autism, and trauma, and poised to help children not only understand God’s Word, but experience true spiritual transformation in their lives. Children who have been overlooked in church–because of lack of understanding and resources–are making friends, enjoying common play time, and are open to a bigger God.

 

Turning Point Pregnancy Resource Center

Dads are part of our families as well.

The mission of Turning Point is to bring hope, health, and healing via evermore sophisticated ultrasound machines to women and their partners facing crisis pregnancies. TP’s new center (6400 sq ft) is creating a transformational, life-affirming, licensed medical clinic where women and men can hear the truth about abortion spoken with respect and understanding. Turning Point shares God’s design for humanity–the family unit. When a preborn child can be identified by his/her facial expressions and tiny fingerprints, and responsive to their parents’ voices and heartbeats, the question of abortion becomes much more weighty. Ultrasounds give “windows to the womb” that make what is unseen, seen. Turning Point staff make it clear that each child is made in the image of God. Then they get to actually introduce the parents to their preborn child via the ultrasound.

29:Eleven Maternity Home

The 29:Eleven Maternity Home is an intimately designed, family-style housing program that celebrates motherhood during pregnancy and for an extended time after giving birth. Each mom develops a plan with goals tailored to her life, situation, and interests. It’s that extra care of the moms that caught our eyes. Founder Becky Pérez identified their need very quickly—transportation! With our grant, they were able to purchase a good-sized van.

Lighthouse Arab World

Lighthouse Arab World (LAW) creates media programs that build bridges in a hostile environment, break down walls of hate, and ultimately share the redeeming power of Jesus Christ. The message of salvation is proclaimed to the Arab World, and the local Churches are encouraged. LAW is headquartered in Beirut, Lebanon with additional offices in Cairo, Tunis and Casablanca. One example of a current LAW video production is Small Letters, where young refugees tell their own stories of suffering and loss–stories about how God reveals Himself through His love, healing, and care.
