Therefore, in addition to the many ministries we have locally, we are also very passionately involved in supporting the work of ministries and missions all around the world to connect people to God and to one another. Our current missions’ support team is listed below. Please read through the ministries listed. You can click on their websites to get even more up-to-date information.
(*) These missions have an impact beyond the borders of the United States
Arlington Crisis Pregnancy Center (Becky Hyde, Arlington, TX)
“To fail on this question of abortion will be the failure of the greatest moral test of the century. This could be the last chance for Christians to stop our society from becoming totally secular and humanistic. If Christians do not take this opportunity to lead, I doubt we will get another.”
- Francis Schaeffer
(*) Bridges for Peace (Lennie Allen, Jerusalem, Israel)
(*) Central India Christian Mission (Ajai and Indu Lall, India)

(*) Dugit (Avi Mizrachi, Tel Aviv, Israel)
(*) Endowment Funds (Crossroads/Grand Prairie, TX)
(Our church’s plan for these five endowment funds is to grow them to a total of $10 million. Then, we will allow them to earn one year’s interest before using the “interest” to augment our mission’s ministry. Each fund was designed to grow to a maximum of $2 million. Earning just 5% interest on that particular fund would mean an extra $100,000.00 to use for that fund’s purpose each and every year until Jesus comes – without ever touching the principle. With all five funds, that would mean an additional $500,000.00 available to use, every year, without touching the principle. Currently, these funds are approaching a $2 million collective total and are earning 7% interest each year.)
(*) Good News Productions, Intl.
(*) The Kore Foundation (Dennis Bratton, Executive Director)
Not a hand out, but a way out.
KORE seeks to create opportunities for economic advancement that will build a sense of dignity and ownership. An opportunity to break the cycle of extreme poverty.
The Poultry Project
KORE’s Poultry Project provides a Haitian Christian the necessary training, financing and oversight to begin his/her own small business. The chicken coop provides food and income security for a family. It is a realistic tool for poverty alleviation, both sustainable and expandable. A ten-year glance at the promise of a $3000 coop start-up is surprising. In this single economic investment, five small holder business owners are ultimately funded, as the original loan is granted, repaid and re-loaned every two years. Children continue to be fed through a sustainable solution that won’t go away when aid workers can no longer provide meals. Unlike relief dollars that are given, spent and must be replenished, dollars invested in economic development, or “business as ministry”, never stop working.
KORE has found that sustainable poverty alleviation is a great pathway toward both evangelism and discipleship.
