We are Passionate About...
1 out of 6 children in developing countries are underweight, and 1 out of 6 children in our state are facing hunger. We work to raise awareness and support because we know that eliminating local and global hunger is key to breaking the cycle of poverty. When individuals living in poverty have increased access to food there is improvement in overall health, which allows for increased productivity and eventual escape from poverty.
Homelessness can happen to anyone. 62% of Americans do not have an emergency savings account. One medical bill or car repair could leave them homeless. Homelessness is always a crisis. We want to build relationships and build partnerships with organizations working to prevent and end homelessness in our city.
There are more than 18,000 children are in our Arizona State foster care system. And every year more than 800 children “age out” of the system when they turn 18 without finding a forever family. In fact, research shows that young people who aged out of the foster care system have a higher chance of experiencing unemployment, homelessness, and incarceration as adults. We want to change that narrative.
Global Good: We are Passionate About...
Today, there are more people seeking safety and asylum than ever before. And with the brokenness around our world, that number will continue to grow. But we, as followers of Jesus Christ, have been called to stand in the gap and stand for the refugee.
We believe when communities are trained and equipped to care for their most vulnerable, the entire community is lifted and poverty can be overcome. Our partners serve communities through life-changing resources such as clean water, food, medical aid, safe and sustainable housing, equal educational opportunities, vocational training, and empowerment in the midst of unimaginable hardships.
Human trafficking is a global issue that often impacts the most vulnerable people among us. This exploitation includes sex slavery, child soldiers, and forced labor, all of which violate people’s rights and dignity. Together, with our partners, we are helping these victims find restoration.
Our community and missionary partners serve as an extension of our body here at McDowell.
Our calling is to be in relationship with communities and missionaries around the world that are working to restore the world for Christ and who care for the most vulnerable.
Together we can change the world!
At Home Church // Paris, France
Thousands of refugees came to France in the last few years to flee wars, poor and difficult living conditions, and economic hardships in their home countries. The church is the only solution for this crisis! However, in order to serve these refugees effectively, a dedicated missionary church is needed. The @home project is the birthing of a church on the ground to reach this population. It is a bridge between Arabic-speaking Christians and churches through teaching French, sharing the Gospel and making disciples.
