COOPERATIVE BENEVOLENCE MINISTRY
Our partnering churches cooperatively resource the benevolence needs of our community. The needs we will seek to address through benevolence ministry are: food, clothing, temporary housing and other bills & life expenses. Benevolence clients are assessed by our one of our “Allies” using Chalmers Center resources and assessment tools. Only people who indicate they desire further life development will receive benevolence resources. Local partner churches make monthly contributions to First Hope from their benevolence budgets to fund cooperative benevolence ministry. These benevolence dollars are used to to meet the needs of our clients and to support the administrative cost of benevolence ministry.
