Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. 1 Timothy 6:18
WHAT IS INTERSECT?
We want to serve those in need in the community around us. We do this through a philosophy called Intersect. We research local organizations who are addressing a particular need which exist in our community; organizations who are experts at meeting those needs, and we choose a few that we can intersect with. By selecting only a few organizations who are focused on meeting particular needs, we have both a deep and strategic impact.
Intersect makes serving our community simple. We plan strategic events and campaigns, such as Be Rich, that mobilize our attendees with nonprofit organizations that are excellent at doing what we want to do but could not do on our own.
WHO CAN SERVE?
Anyone! We’d love for you to take a first step into serving within our community whether you’re serving with your small group, your family, or individually. Please contact us if you have questions.
OUR CURRENT PARTNERS
Our current partners focus on three distinct needs we are passionate about stepping into: local poverty and homelessness; rescue and restoration to victims of human trafficking; and at risk children, both locally and globally.
Lifeline is celebrating 30 years of bringing a hope and a future to orphaned children. Today, they have over 100 staff members on the phone, in meetings, and out in the field all working together to find incredible families for children in need of a loving, caring home. Lifeline has become known in adoption circles for putting the interest of the child first and specializing in quality training and education for our families. As a result we maintain an excellent relationship with adoption authorities both in the US and also in the international countries we serve.
We trust in the power of our God who made all people, and believe that Jesus, God in the flesh, set us an example of hope, mercy and love for our neighbor. As a result, Rwanda Children seeks to embody and live out the example of love through our presence and through the sharing of our resources with vulnerable and at-risk children in the country of Rwanda.
If you are interested in finding out about how you can take a trip with Rwanda children, please contact Vann Conwell.
Rwanda Children's next Vision Trip: June 2017
A large percentage of the most recent refugees are from Syria. In Syria, a more than four-year-old civil war between President Bashar al-Assad and various insurgent groups, including the Islamic State, has resulted in the deaths of more than 200,000 people and displaced millions. Other refugees are escaping violence in the nations of Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, and Pakistan. More than 1 million refugees arrived in Europe by sea last year. The majority of them are simply seeking safety and the opportunities that Europe provides. Samaritan’s Purse has staff on five islands in Greece, in two locations in mainland Greece, and in Croatia working in Jesus’ Name to provide relief to vulnerable people. Our work is focused on helping these families by supplying them with essential resources and aid in Jesus' name.
