When Faith Family Fellowship formed, our Leadership Team agreed to be a missions-minded church, and therefore, purposed to keep a portion of our regular offerings to be designated towards missions. After seeking God’s Heart through prayer and much Holy Spirit-guided discussion, we decided to start financially supporting the following four local missions:
ALLENTOWN RESCUE MISSION
The Allentown Rescue Mission has been serving the needs of the homeless and needy in the Lehigh Valley for more than 100 years. The mission provides rescue, rehabilitation and restoration for homeless men in crisis through Christ-centered programs based on compassion and accountability. It is a non-denominational, Christian, social service organization, which provides critically-needed goods and services to homeless and impoverished men without regard to race, color, creed, national origin or religion. The mission is not a church, but does cooperate with many different churches that are concerned about poverty and homelessness.
BRIGHT HOPE PREGNANCY SUPPORT CENTERS
Bright Hope Pregnancy Support Centers honor life and offer hope by providing pregnancy support services, resources and life-skills education to women, men and youth.
Their services include: pregnancy and ultrasound testing, father-mentoring, relationship counseling and post-abortion recovery.
They also provide education in these areas: pre- and post-natal parenting, sexual risk avoidance, STD/STI, pregnancy-loss, maternity transitional housing, money management and comprehensive options in education. Their community education programs speak to these same subjects in schools, churches and in area prisons.
CHOSEN PEOPLE MINISTRIES
Chosen People Ministries exists to pray for, evangelize, disciple and serve Jewish people everywhere while encouraging all believers to do the same. The mission was founded in Brooklyn, New York in 1894 by Rabbi Leopold Cohn, a Hungarian Jewish immigrant with a zeal to share the knowledge of Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah with God’s Chosen People.
Today, Chosen People Ministries serves in sixteen countries around the globe. Their outreach programs include evangelism and discipleship, Messianic Centers and congregations, local church development for Jewish evangelism, print and web publications, and benevolence work.
TRUTH FOR WOMEN
Truth For Women provides restorative care for sexually-exploited women and increasing awareness of this problem. Its staff provides various trainings that can be adapted to meet the needs of workplaces, churches, schools and other organizations. Because human trafficking is the second largest criminal industry in the world, TFW assumes the vital responsibility to help educate regarding this injustice.
The Truth Home is a therapeutic residential women’s home that seeks to dramatically change lives with hope-filled futures to survivors of sex-trafficking and sexual exploitation. The home offers a safe, family-setting where motivated women receive the opportunity to rebuild their lives over an 8-12 month period of intensive therapeutic intervention.
