Creating Community for the Forgotten

Philippines | Onie Avante

In a large city like Manila where urban poverty is high, much of the physical and spiritual resources go to the center. But communities on the outside edges of Manila are often forgotten and experience deeper levels of poverty.

Pastor Onie Avante is focusing his efforts on these marginalized communities. He plants churches among them, and disciples the congregation to go plant more churches. The churches he plants will also help meet physical needs in their community such as providing food for the hungry.

Enriching Life in the Slums

Philippines | Joshua & Jessa Manalo

Urban poverty is a common problem in Manila, a densely populated city of over 12 million people. Many live in tightly packed slum communities where access to running water and electricity is scarce.

Joshua and Jessa have a heart to reach out to the poor and disadvantaged in their community. They lead the Barangay Valencia Ministry Center, where they host children’s programs, disciple youth, and provide support for mothers.

A Refuge in a War Zone

Ukraine | Alexander & Sveta Moseychuk

Since 2014, Ukraine has been in a war in the eastern part of the country. People have lost their businesses, their homes, and their loved ones. Those who survive have lost hope.

Yet in the middle of that war zone, New Life Church continues to provide food for the hungry and hope for the suffering, even after their church building was seized by occupying Russian forces.  Courageously led by Alex and Sveta, the ministry shares the hope and peace of Jesus with those who have lost everything.
