Local & National Ministries

The Miami Valley Women’s Center, founded in 1982, exists as a life-affirming, nonprofit organization that strengthens families by providing practical assistance for pregnancy-related concerns by offering everything from pregnancy tests to ultrasounds, training for expectant moms and dads and support groups. For women who have experienced an abortion in their past, they offer abortion recovery ministry. For those who have experienced the loss of a child due to miscarriage, stillbirth, or infant death, the Silver Linings group offers support and God’s healing. Their abstinence programs reach out into the community, touching thousands of young lives every year with the life-saving message that saving sex for marriage is the best decision young people can make for their own health, their futures and the well-being of the next generation.

Beavercreek FISH

FISH began in England in 1961 when an Anglican priest and a layman started a program where a person in need of anything from food, clothes, and medical attention or just companionship could put the early Christian symbol of the fish, representing Christ, in their window. Beavercreek FISH is a volunteer organization which meets many needs in Beavercreek. Using volunteers and funds from various churches, organizations, and individuals in Beavercreek, FISH provides food and emergency funds to those in need. Although Beavercreek appears to be an affluent area, there are still many needs for the elderly, single-parent families, battered women, and people temporarily out of work.

RELIANT Columbus, Ohio

There are over 56,000 students on the main campus of The Ohio State University. Of those, we estimate less than 6% are involved with any kind of Christian campus ministry. In addition, 6000 of those students are international students. Many of those are from countries closed to traditional missionary efforts. But the Lord has brought the world to our doorstep! What an exciting time and place to reach out to the next generation of humanity from all over the world with the good news of Jesus Christ!
As one of the pastors of H2O Church, I have been given an amazing opportunity to mobilize OSU students to do just that, while preparing them for a lifetime of following Christ even beyond college. My specific role focuses on helping to lead and care for our City congregation (made up of graduate and professional students, and people working in the City), and on teaching and equipping our church as a whole. 
The Gospel Mission, under the direction of Rev. and Mrs. Kenneth Clarkston, is dedicated to serve Christ in the community, specifically the inner city of Dayton. The Gospel Mission has a very comprehensive plan for the inner city. Christ is foremost in all of the various ministries that are offered. They assist with many needs from clothing, food, hot meals in our free restaurant, education, Joy Clubs, Sunday School, Seniors programs, and so much more. Many volunteer missionary staff positions are available in their ever-growing outreach.

Habitat for Humanity is a national Christian ministry that builds and rehabilitates homes for low-income families with the goal of eliminating poverty housing. The Greene County affiliate functions with all volunteer labor and tax-deductible donations of money and materials to construct the homes. Each new homeowner family must contribute 300-500 hours of sweat equity to the program to increase the pride of ownership. The partner family then buys the house for the cost of the materials. Greene County then carries the 0% interest mortgage on the home. Habitat for Humanity of Greene County was founded in 1990. Since its inception they have built 14 homes and are presently working on houses in Xenia and Fairborn.

Family Life

In 1976, the ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ (now called Cru) saw young couples on staff struggling and knew something must be done. Immediately. Forty-plus years later, with over 3 million people attending events, 1.6 million weekly radio listeners, and resources in over 100 countries, we’re ready to help even more. But it’s not about numbers for us. Unless we’re talking about the number 1. Helping one family at a time. Making God number one in each life, each home, each day. Knowing there’s only one family like yours. Family Life's mission is to effectively develop godly marriages and families who change the world one home at a time.

In June of 2005, John G. Pearson opened the Santa Lastenia Health Clinic as an entry point for health care to serve approximately 4,000 people living in an isolated area of north-central Nicaragua. The clinic attracts locals from 10 or 11 villages within walking distance, the closest being 25km away. They arrive on foot, on horseback and in wheelbarrows. The clinic was opened to provide preventative care like nutrition, sanitation, vaccinations, prenatal care and education, as well as a witness to the love of Jesus Christ.
