As we seek to advance joy for the sake of the gospel, we partner with people in the city and around the world not only through finances but through service, and prayer. Jesus sends all of his followers out on mission into the world in their own vocations, and we’re grateful for the opportunity to come alongside the list of communities below as they seek to joyfully steward their gifts and calling.
Level Ground Mixed martials arts
Our longest standing missional partner is a local one! We’ve been able to come alongside them financially and in volunteer work for the last three years. “Level Ground offers mixed martial arts, jiu jitsu, kickboxing and yoga to empower empower youth in Dorchester while simultaneously offering college access and career support.” We deeply value their work, and feel called to continue to support this effort, especially as we have moved into the Dorchester area which is where LG is located.

Resurrection Church is an early-stage church plant with a vision to live life with God in community for the neighborhood of East Boston. They held their first worship service on Sunday, September 8th and will continue meeting at 4:30 pm on Sundays in East Boston. Pastor Justin Ruddy says, "God is doing some lovely things in and through our team, and we are so excited to be joining God on his mission to invite people to experience the joy of life with God." Let's pray for this new church plant—for effective, fruitful ministry, for additional people and resources, and for God's empowerment and blessing as they begin continue their ministry!
Diane and Tom Schiefer are two global missionaries we support through Christian Veterinary Mission. “CVM seeks to challenge, empower and facilitate veterinary professionals to serve others by living out their Christian faith. They form relationships with people who live in nomadic communities where income, nutrition, and labor are provided by livestock. When these animals are in poor health, are weak, plagued with disease or die, it drastically impacts the lives of these people.” So through their profession and service, they’re able to spread the Gospel, and joyfully partner with them.
Sean and Paige Whiting work with one of the most vulnerable in society, orphans. We believe and support their mission to give children a home into adulthood, send them to college, and prepare them for a career. We’ve had the privilege of supporting them for a couple of years now, specifically to help pay for students’ college education. To the right is a profile picture for one of the most recent students we’ve supported.
Reality is made up of a family of churches and each one is birthed through much prayer. Before the birth of each local church, men and women who are a part of the Reality family volunteer time out of their work schedules, purchase flights and participate in a prayer-tour to walkthrough, learn and pray for the city. Reality Honolulu is the youngest of our family, and we’ve been able to support them in their launch in 2018! We’ve also had the pleasure of supporting Reality London during their launch in 2017.
