Buena Vista Sports Academy
The Buena Vista Sports Academy exists… to take the love of Jesus to tough places, evangelize and disciple young men, pray for the Holy Spirit to light them on fire, and expect entire communities to come to Christ as a result.
Currently working in Guatemala, Honduras, and West Africa, BVSA is more than a “soccer ministry”- it’s an evangelism & discipleship ministry! Using the international language of soccer as a tool, we aim to break generational chains of sin, poverty, addiction, and spiritual lostness in tough places around the world. The Buena Vista Sports Academy exists to… take the love of Jesus to tough places, evangelize and disciple young men, pray for the Holy Spirit to light them on fire, and expect entire communities to come to Christ as a result.
Love for Ethiopia
Our mission statement at Love For Ethiopia is to help the marginalized children of Ethiopia break their cycles of poverty by providing them with a quality education and the hope of Jesus Christ. We do this by finding people, families, churches, or groups that want to not only sponsor a child monetarily but also create a relationship with their child in Ethiopia. We encourage sponsors to write letters, send pictures and even come with us to Ethiopia to visit their child. The majority of our children there are orphans so they really cherish the love they get from their sponsors.

Vision: Love Guatemala exists to give hope to Guatemalans through the gospel of Jesus Christ and vocational training.
Love Guatemala is providing vocational training to give hope and build relationships and share the gospel. They currently have the following vocational training schools: art, cooking, carpentry, English and accelerated adult educational programs where older students can finish their elementary and middle school education. In the future, they will be adding high school as well. They also serve the community through a feeding center, medical center, and additional economical aid. In 2018 they started a church called New Life Church to “Help all people experience the fullness of the new life in Christ.” 2 Corinthians 5:17
Future Vision: Love Guatemala plans to begin additional vocational schools, a Bible Institute to train Latinos to take the gospel to the nations, and more churches.
Emmaus Church is partnering with Gospel for Nations Ministries (located in India) to share the good news of Jesus with those who have never heard the message of the gospel. We do this through supporting indigenous church planters who go into unreached local villages to make disciples and plant churches.
You can support a church planter in India for $25 a month. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Through Impact for India, Emmaus is also helping to meet the physical and spiritual needs of a community of leprosy patients in South India. Through this program, we help supply nutritious meals each week as well as medical care for those in need.

Project For Hope exists to share the life-changing love of Christ with fatherless families through vocational training for mothers, educational assistance for their children, and basic healthcare for the family.

- To see children and young people inspired and resourced to pursue an education that will give them hope for the future.
Okoa started as a home for orphaned and vulnerable children in Uganda. Okoa founders, Tyler and Liv Workman, had a vision to rescue children from dire situations. What started as a dream to care for a few children has grown and matured becoming even more than Tyler or Liv ever imagined. In partnership with the local church, Okoa Refuge exists to glorify Christ through stabilizing the family unit and transforming entire communities.
Fountains of Life

Here2There exists to close the gap between churches and missionaries. They desire to be a resource and support for the church to intentionally raise up, send out, and partner with their people who are serving locally, nationally, and globally. They also desire to be a support base and tool for missionaries to ask for, create and carry out a partnership model of ministry with their churches as they go and serve worldwide. By creating strategic partnerships between the church and their missionaries, there is shared vision and shared participation in making disciples of all nations.
