Five Other Shining Light Ministries Worthy of Your Interest

December 30, 2013

"Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share." 1 Timothy 6:18

In late November, we highlighted these five excellent ministries on Giving Tuesday. Given December 31st is tomorrow, we thought it would be good to remind our users about these very worthy ministries. If you need to make some quick decisions about where to give before year-end, these suggestions may prove helpful.

1.) Joni & Friends - This ministry is dedicated to extending the love and message of Christ to people who are affected by disability, whether it is the disabled person, a family member, or friend. Joni and Friends' objective is to meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of this group of people in practical ways.

2.) International Justice Mission - This ministry seeks to document human rights abuses abroad, to educate the Christian church and the general public about such abuses and the need for the church to respond, and to mobilize intervention on behalf of the victims of these abuses.

3.) Eternal Perspective Ministries - This ministry is dedicated to teaching biblical truth and drawing attention to the needy and how to help them. EPM exists to meet the needs of the unreached, unfed, unborn, uneducated, unreconciled and unsupported people around the world.

4.) Care Net - This ministry's mission is to promote a culture of life within our society in order to serve people facing unplanned pregnancies and related sexual issues. Our vision is a culture where lives are transformed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ and every woman chooses life for herself and her unborn child. Care Net supports more than 1,100 pregnancy centers around the US.

5.) Bright Hope International - Bright Hope brings Hope to the extreme poor - those living on less than $1 a day. Bright Hope envisions a world where under-resourced, indigenous churches transform their communities and bring Hope to the extreme poor. Local indigenous church partnerships are central to their model. They empower the local churches to fight poverty in their own communities.
