Tell me more!

So happy to see that you have wandered over to our blog section! You may have found your way here because you were wondering---“How can buying a phone change a life”? I'll explain! A portion of EVERY phone sold will be donated to Upward Ministries. And because Upward Mobile is a small family owned company in Cincinnati, Ohio we think that is pretty cool. Bryan began Upward Mobile two years ago out of his basement. And I, his wife Erin, worked as a social worker for a local non-profit. It has always been our dream to have our own ministry and now that dream is finally coming true. And let me tell you, it has been a LONG time coming!

Exactly one year ago, we came up with the mission statement for this ministry, 5 years before that we started our journey to become foster parents and 15 years before that (wow I feel old) my heart stirred for the first time for the foster care system and the families involved. All those events bring me to the point of this blog---the launch of Upward Ministries. Over the upcoming weeks, I am going to be giving more and more details about Upward Ministries but today I just wanted to lay the foundation for you. Upward Ministries will be purchasing a house that will be used to help low income families become self sufficient by showing them the love and mercy of the Lord while assisting with their short term needs. We will be targeting families who are involved with the child welfare system with the ultimate goal of helping families stay together.

There are so many exciting pieces that I can’t wait to share with you over the upcoming weeks. But it is late (and I have a crying toddler on my lap) so I will be closing with our mission statement. I hope you check back frequently to see what’s new with Upward Ministries.

Mission Statement:
To bring the healing power of Jesus Christ to hurting families through investing in their stability, security and upward mobility.




Psalms 140:12 I know that the LORD secures justice for the poor and upholds the case of the needy.

    My wife just purchased an iPhone 6. I thought it was at least 64g, and it is 16g.

    What is your return or exchange policy. I would like her to have at least an iPhone 6 with 64g.

    Your help is greatly appreciated.

    I ran onto this blog after searching on Craigslist for a used cell phone. I have some questions I would like to ask Bryan if there is a way to do so. As a Christian myself, it is exciting to see your ministry dream becoming a reality. Let’s trust God to crown your efforts with success. Perhaps I can help by purchasing a used phone from you once I have my questions answered. God bless.

    Great talking with you this weekend, Bryan, and God Bless you and your family with this ministry. It is people like that give this country a chance to stop the downward slide of into a toxic culture. Keep up the good fight :) — Jeff
