Village Ministries. There it is. The name. Finallllly.
We have been praying and thinking about a name for this ministry for many months. Endlessly bouncing names back and forth. Originally it seemed that Upward Ministries would be the name but over time, that just didn’t seem right. And then, it just clicked---Village. It takes a village. We want to be a “village” for hurting families. And the world is full of broken and hurting families. Our foster care system shoulders the brunt of this hurt and sin when it inevitably starts to affect children. Unfortunately, there are many things that can contribute to the abuse or neglect of children but a common tie is families who are under pressure AND lack support. That is where Village Ministries comes in.
We want to support these families! We want to point them to the saving grace of Jesus Christ. We want to be the family’s village, support and community. The whole goal of Village Ministries is to keep children at home with their families rather than in foster homes. We want to take a stand and say “Enough is Enough! It is time to reclaim God’s purpose for the family”! Because I assure you---God has a plan for families and we want to be a part of that plan. We want all of you to be a part of that plan! Thank you for supporting Upward Mobile which is taking Village Ministries from a dream into reality.
