Above all we are looking for prayer partners that will commit to daily prayer for the ministry of the Word. You can keep up with what is happening by signing up for the newsletter or follow us online with the website, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. We covet your prayer times and know that this is the chief method of God working, drawing those he loves to himself. This is where we know our safety comes from and allows us to act with the Gospel.
We need Bibles, Peanut Butter and Jelly, bread, toilet paper, cleaning supplies, feminine hygiene products. We are often looking for Sundays School or small group material as well. Please contact Pastor Griffin by email for an active current list. This can be a great project for a WMU or Youth group that has a desire to be a part of this ministry!

We need help to stay on the mission here in Rockford! We are working with several mission boards to maintain our family here in service and ministry but we always need more help. Not trying to get rich but trying to survive. We are living currently below the poverty line in our city and just above where many of those we server live day to day. Your general gifts go directly to our bottom line. You can give through your church or one of our sponsoring churches as well as just drop a note in the mail. God allowed us to catch up on our heating bill just last week with a check that God sent through the hands of His people. Pray about helping us on a regular giving schedule.
Van or Vehicle Funds
Help us make our goal! We are trying to gain new vehicle for our family and it is quite costly. There is a plan in place and if you can help in any way we would love to watch from the front lines as God blesses! Click here for more information on giving to the Vehicle project.
Got gas? We spend almost $100 a week in the last year to drive a small bus around town to pickup families that have no transportation to services in Rockford and Belvidere. You would not believe the difference a Wal-Mart gas card can make!
Homeschooling and pastoring in this day and age we find ourselves working from a PC or a phone quite often. If you have a computer that runs and can be used still we would love to take a look at it. If we don’t use it ourselves we refurbish and donate the PC to folks that are recently “unHomeless” but have no way to communicate. Amazing what an old PC with Ubuntu or Windows 7 installed can change things for people.
Yeah, seems like a book budget would have been something to add but it has fallen away with the Kindle and Logos digital libraries. I love to read. I have an active Amazon list as well as Logos digital library list that you can help support the continued education and reading! Don’t get me wrong I love a physical book in my hands too, the bottom line is that I love to read. Got a good book suggestion? Add it to my Kindle or mail me a copy!
