MyFight is a movement to abolish extreme poverty. You buy t-shirts, we make loans, and together we empower families to escape the prison of poverty. We are business with a social bottom line–a social business. Through this hybrid design we are bringing the power of business to the concerns of charity. 100% of our profit is used to further the Fight.
Almost everyone loves movies. In fact, reports from the Motion Picture Association of America show that over 172 million people see at least one movie each year in a theater. We know that films also find their way into our homes via DVD, Blu-ray, and over an Internet connection. Because churches are on the front lines of life change in their communities, faith-based films provide an ideal and important ministry opportunity for the church. It is a powerful way to reach people, both believers and non-believers, with the greatest story every told—the gospel story of Jesus.

For more than 40 years, Christ In Youth (CIY) Christ In Youth (CIY) has called students and leaders to boldly live for Christ through the hope of the Gospel message and a call to Kingdom action. By amplifying the call of Christ on student lives, three generations of servants, workers, missionaries and church leaders have responded to that call and populated the harvest field.
Today, CIY works in partnership with the local church, providing more than 100 annual program events for students and leaders across the United States and in more than ten foreign countries. CIY believes God has uniquely and specifically equipped every student for Kingdom work. In response to His call, students can actively serve in the harvest fields of their families, schools, churches and communities- not someday- but TODAY.
Within the next decade, more than one million students and leaders will be impacted worldwide through CIY’s programs, curriculum and resources in an effort to turn the Millennial generation into a movement of Kingdom workers, responding in faith and in service to the call of Christ.
HomeWord seeks to advance the work of God in the world by educating, equipping, and encouraging parents and churches to build God-honoring families from generation to generation.

The story of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:30-37) gives a clear picture of God’s desire for us to help those in desperate need wherever we find them. After describing how the Samaritan rescued a hurting man whom others had passed by, Jesus told His hearers, “Go and do likewise.” For over 40 years, Samaritan’s Purse has done our utmost to follow Christ’s command by going to the aid of the world’s poor, sick, and suffering. We are an effective means of reaching hurting people in countries around the world with food, medicine, and other assistance in the Name of Jesus Christ. This, in turn, earns us a hearing for the Gospel, the Good News of eternal life through Jesus Christ.
As our teams work in crisis areas of the world, people often ask, “Why did you come?” The answer is always the same: “We have come to help you in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ.” Our ministry is all about Jesus—first, last, and always. As the Apostle Paul said, “For we do not preach ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake” (2 Corinthians 4:5, NIV).
