Compassion Mandate

Our “Compassion Mandate” focuses on providing clothes and practical assistance to the less fortunate. It’s “Love in Action.”

On this page, we have highlighted some of our major goals. For a further explanation and breakdown of our Short Term Goals, please see page three. In order for us to effectively walk out what God is calling us to do, we need to gather more team members who can empower us to touch more lives in a greater measure. We call this principle Kingdom Expansion. Our desire is connecting the resources with the needs.

Short Term Goals (1-2 years)
*$200,000 per year to aid in helping the poor
*Based on supply, possibly locate warehouse space in Illinois

*Staff Salaries:  $50,000

Medium Range Goals (2-4 years)

*Funding for publishing books and training manuals
*Funding for conferences, training and seminars

Long Range Goals (4 years +)
*Establishing an Endowment that would provide long term support

Short Term Goals (1-2 years)
We believe that allocating $200,000 in helping the poor is only the beginning point. In addition to supplying clothes, we also want to help people in other ways as well. These “acts of kindness” will vary greatly. We know church leaders who can help us focus in on the needs of different communities. These will include identifying families who need critical home repairs, child care, dental and health care needs, purchasing vehicles, etc. The lists of needs are virtually endless.

Our hearts are to continue to strategically and systemically link arms with those who need help in practical ways. Jesus cared for those who were in need. We want to follow His example.

If among you, one of your brothers should become poor…you shall not harden your heart or shut your hand against your poor brother, but you shall open your hand to him and lend him sufficient for his need, whatever it may be. You shall give to him freely and your heart shall not be grudging when you give to him, because for this the Lord your God will bless you in all your work and in all that you undertake. For there will never cease to be poor in the land. Therefore, I command you, ‘You shall open wide your hand to your brother, to the needy and to the poor, in your land (Deuteronomy 15:7-8, 10-11).
