OUR MISSION ISN'T JUST FOR PEOPLE WHO WALK IN OUR DOORS...
Genesis has formed intentional partnerships with organizations locally and globally in order to carry out Jesus’ command
in Acts 1:8, “..and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria and to the ends of the earth.”
When we go and serve we can have a Kingdom impact while also being
impacted ourselves. We encounter Jesus when we help others encounter him.
Here’s a look at our key partners in outreach.
Nehemiah Vision Ministries is a non-Profit organization that ministers to people living in the communities of Chambrun and Onaville, Haiti along with smaller villages. NVM is focused on transforming the lives of people in Haiti through education, health and spiritual development. We send mission trip teams to Haiti each year to help with the work of NVM, and they always come back full of love for the Haitian people!
PARTNER IN MYANMAR
We work with a faith-based ministry organization that exists to alleviate poverty and unemployment in the country of Myanmar, by funding and mentoring small businesses. Our partner's focus is on underprivileged youth, lay Christians, and church planters. They seek to show the love of Christ through the pursuit of breaking the cycle of poverty in Myanmar. We send small teams to share about good business practices and how we can have a Kingdom impact through our businesses!
Last Bell is based in Zhytomyr, Ukraine where they care and advocate for orphanage graduates who need support in education and life skills, trade skills and job searching, basic needs and secure housing, and family development to end the orphan cycle. All of what they do to support these individuals is laced with Biblical principles and the love of Christ.
Restored is a ministry organization that helps children in Indiana and surrounding states, who have been extorted through sex-trafficking and exploitation by providing an avenue to find restoration and healing. Through the love of Christ, Restored’s mission is to provide victim services, raise awareness in churches and local communities, and provide advocacy in hope of ending human sex trafficking.
We are proud to partner with Food4Souls, an Indianapolis-based group that works to meet both the immediate and long-term needs of Indy’s homeless population. We’ve learned that we’re not supplying things for nameless, faceless “homeless people”–we’re providing for people with real names and real stories. During the Christmas season, we do a church-wide drive called “Love Your Neighbor” where we collect needed supplies for these brothers and sisters of ours. We got to accompany Food4Souls on a distribution trip, and you can watch that powerful story here. Would you like to sign-up for the Food 4 Souls team and get notified of serving opportunities? If so, you can sign-up HERE.
Shepherd Community Center’s mission is to break the cycle of poverty on the near Eastside of Indianapolis through empowering and engaging their neighbors in a variety of programs for children and families. For many children in the area, the only good meals they get are when they’re at school. So, what do they eat during spring break? Thought you’d never ask! The truth is that many children go without much or any food at all during Spring Break. Each year we partner with Shepherd Community Center to provide 200 bags packed with 10 meals each to be distributed to these children so that they can continue to have food during their Spring Break!
We are currently partnering with Noblesville and Westfield Young Life to reach the kids in our communities! Young Life has a number of amazing ministries reaching the students in our middle schools and high schools. We love being able to bridge the gap between school and church, by working with Young Life and providing a welcoming church family.
CHURCH PLANTING PARTNERS
New Thing Network helps leaders, churches, and church planters plant healthy reproducing churches to achieve the mission of Jesus. The network provides training, resources, encouragement, accountability, and guidance for church leaders as they seek to multiply and make disciples.
ICF church based in Tirana, Albania is a growing movement of over 100 people with a passion for spreading the truth of the Gospel in a spiritually dark place. They are growing quickly and now have a second church campus! ICF Tirana hopes to plant many more churches in Albania, and we’re excited to partner with them.
