America For Christ

 
Our Lord Jesus Christ intends every member of every church to do the work of this ministry. Ministry is to build up each other’s faith and love. God’s design is to use human support and encouragement to sustain the faith of his children and to lighten the burden they bear in the service of love. The America for Christ Offering ”Cultivates Leaders” by chaplaincies, specialized ministries, scholarships; “Equips Disciples” through evangelism, workshops and support; “Heal Communities” with disaster response, disability ministries, refugee resettlements and much, much more. AFC Offering reminds us that it is in our service to the church and our community that many experience the Christ in us. AFC is helping the world see the spirit of Christ living in our modern world.
