As a church, Foundations gives the firstfruits of all regular tithes and offerings contributed by our congregation back to the kingdom by supporting local, national, and international outreach initiatives. Your tremendous generosity has allowed us to send funds, resources, and people to locations near and far to make meaningful differences for the kingdom. We have also been able to develop strategic partnerships with churches, missionaries, and ministries all over the globe.
The Ratcliffe Family
Paraguay, South America
In October 2014, the Ratcliffe family (Peter and Evi, and their six incredible children) arrived in Paraguay, South America, in obedience to a clear call from Heaven to preach the Gospel, bringing the love of Jesus Christ to unreached tribes. Despite losing their eldest daughter, Emily, in a tragic car accident in the summer of 2019, they have continued to serve the people of Paraguay faithfully and courageously. We as a church are invested, involved and connected in our relationship with the Ratcliffe family for the long run. Our practical, financial support helped them purchase a new all-terrain vehicle that sends them deep into the bush to effectively reach whole communities with the initial Gospel message, food, supplies, and ongoing discipleship programs.

A Message of Thanks from the Ratcliffe Family
COVID-19 Food Distribution Update
In response to the devastating Covid-19 pandemic, The Ratcliffe's are safely and legally distributing food supplies and essential aid. They have seen firsthand that the situation in the indigenous villages they work in are much more desperate than they had thought. With little or no outside aid reaching these precious people, the Ratcliffe's are so happy to give much needed resources and food to as many as they can during these difficult times. Approximately 8 Tons of supplies have already distributed in more than 70 villages! The average cost to reach a village is $150.
The Shai Fund
The Middle East
The Middle East
As many fled the Afrin area of Syria, The Shai Fund immediately sent in much needed urgent aid to displaced families and orphan children. As continued conflict occurs in this area and across Syria, Iraq and the Middle East, The Shai Fund continuously responds with food aid and non-food items. To date, The Shai Fund has helped thousands of families with emergency family packages. We as a church body are honored to stand alongside their mission of assisting victims of war, natural and man-made disaster, famine, poverty and persecution.
