OUR VISION IS TO HELP PEOPLE DRAW LIFE FROM GOD AND POINT OTHERS TO HIM
WE WILL DO THAT BY HAVING A GOSPEL IDENTITY – KNOWING WE ARE UNDENIABLY FLAWED AND UNBELIEVABLY LOVED // A REACHING PRIORITY – BEING AS CONCERNED ABOUT OUTSIDERS AS WE ARE INSIDERS // LIVING IN AUTHENTIC COMMUNITY – A PLACE WHERE WE CAN BELONG AND BECOME // A SPIRITUAL INTIMACY – BELIEVING GOD WANTS A RELATIONSHIP WITH ME MORE THAN WANTING ME TO FOLLOW A SET OF RULES // OWNING A PERSONAL MINISTRY – BECOMING A SERVANT OF OTHERS INSTEAD OF A CONSUMER OF RELIGIOUS SERVICES // ONE PERSON AT A TIME // ONE FAMILY AT A TIME // ONE GROUP AT A TIME // ONE CAMPUS AT A TIME // HELPING BROKEN PEOPLE BECOME WHOLE
Lifepoint continues to directly support Kingdom efforts in nine (9) countries across Africa, Europe, Asia, North America and South America, with 5 long term missionaries and 3 mid-term missionaries on the field in 2021.
In partnership with Children’s Hopechest and Vision Baptist Church in Uganda, Kakira Carepoint has continued to support the community in the midst of the pandemic. The carepoint is fully functioning once again, with 210 children enrolled in the program. Several village saving and loans associations (VSLA’s) have been successfully started and maintained, empowering participating guardians of the enrolled children to begin and grow business ventures leading to greater self-sustainability. The tailoring skill program is functioning and plans are being made to begin a green house and piggery project in 2022. These projects will both support the care offered at the Carepoint (supplement feeding program) and begin generating sustainable income for the carepoint.
In partnership with Finish Line Ministries, the Vocational Training College in Malawi was completed in late 2021 with the opening in early 2022. Lifepoint was able to fully fund the structure and start-up cost of the carpentry program within the VTC.
In 2021, Lifepoint continued to financially support the work of Global Theological Seminary in Uganda and pastoral training programs in the Caribbean, India and Kenya.
Lifepoint continued to support three North American church plants in 2021, with two of those partnerships coming to close in 2022, as they move toward being self-sustaining churches. We were excited to witness our partner in Denver, Journey Point Church launch a second location in 2021. Lifepoint’s continued generosity now allows for new partnerships to be formed in new cities.
Local: At Lifepoint, the majority of our local missions are done through our Lifegroups. We believe that we can do more and do it better that way. In 2021, we have groups and individuals continue to step up in major ways. To see a listing of some of the organizations that our Lifegroups partner with, please visit Serve The City.
