The Mandate’s Mission is to break the stronghold of poverty globally by providing basic care, education, and commerce for the helpless. Through this, the love of Christ will be tangibly realized in such a way as to draw others into relationships with Him.

What does this look like?

The Mandate supports the following: education through teacher salary assistance, school fees, and supplies for students; health education and hygiene supplies for girls and expectant mothers; widow care that includes home repairs, solar lighting kits, and supplemental food; nutrition and farming opportunities for the villages; prison ministry; employment opportunities through adult trade training; drilling wells for clean water; and Bible teaching for adults and children every Sunday, and so much more. Each of these touchpoints brings opportunities to share the love and salvation of Jesus Christ.
