Send Relief’s desire is to offer on-going opportunities to visit our Ministry Centers to taste and see what compassion ministry looks like on the front lines. We want you to leverage our experiences in hopes that you may begin a similar initiative, fortify an effort that has already begun, or directly partner with one or multiple of our Ministry Centers.
We will spend time introducing you to our specific context and how the principles of ministry could easily convert into your local community. You will have the opportunity to converse with us about what has worked, has not worked, and why. It is also planned to explore what your goals short and long-term might be. Perhaps you have the next 5 years planned or maybe only the next 5 minutes. We are here to help, think, and pray with you about your next steps.
With a population of more than 8.6 million, New York City is a thriving, dynamic place. But within this mass of people living in the city, there are nearly 79,000 who are homeless, while others are enduring a poverty rate of more than 43 percent. Taylor Field with Graffiti Church and Andrew Mann with Graffiti 2 have branched out across the city with a goal of revitalizing communities by building relationships with people from all backgrounds and walks of life. Send Relief is partnering with Graffiti Church as we share their desire to “Meet the Need – First”. Consider taking a tour of this vibrant city at the street level and learn how to combat all the issues relating to poverty in your own community.
Our desire is to help you identify one of the three goals below by the end of your tour with us.
- Help you understand how to replicate ministry in your local context
- Present opportunities for you to partner with our ministry center
- Inspire and encourage continued ministry development
