Each year, Christmas Gift to the World, presents a fresh new opportunity to be a blessing and impact communities near and far for the better. It’s an honor to support our brothers and sisters around the world! So, let’s give BIG!
As believers, we’re called to go and make disciples of all nations. This is the heart behind Christmas Gift to the World. We annually come together and focus our generosity on both a global and local ministry. We’ve seen God do so much over the years in the areas of sex trafficking, the building of ministry facilities, the digging of water wells, the launch of churches, and the impact of nations. Be a part of this incredible blessing.
In May of 1988, several churches joined together to form Neighborhood Cooperative Ministries (NCM) with a mission to provide services to low income and homeless families in Norcross, Peachtree Corners, Doraville and Tucker, Georgia. NCM is dedicated to providing emergency assistance to families through food, resources, skills training and more. Currently, they serve 50 to 70 families each day from a 12,000 square foot facility in Norcross, Georgia.
Communities and needs are changing and NCM strives to meet those needs. Through Christmas Gift to the World, Norcross Cooperative Ministries will be able to build out their property, feed and provide job training to more individuals and families!
Since 1999, Overland Missions has worked to spread the gospel of Jesus around the globe! It all started in Zambia, Africa, and today they’ve expanded their ministry to four continents. So, what exactly do they do? We’re glad you asked!
Overland Missions provides clean water, medical aid, and agricultural sustainability in the developing nations where they serve. Their relationships in these communities allow them not only to help meet the physical needs of the people but open the door to meet the spiritual needs as well—to make disciples and develop leaders who will do the same.
For the past five years, David and Fiona Killough, who lead operations for Overland Missions in Angola, Africa, have sought to establish a permanent mission base that will house missionary teams and support training for discipleship leaders in the community. They were recently presented with an opportunity to purchase land that is seven times the size of their current rental property… And that’s where we come in!
Through your generosity, David, Fiona and the Overland Missions team will be able to host and equip more missionary teams and residents in Angola, translate the Bible into the native language of the remote community they serve, and reach more people who have never heard the gospel even once!
