For over a century Hephzibah Children’s Home has been serving the needs of children and families who are homeless, orphaned, abused, and neglected. Our passion is driven by Christ’s command to “offer a cup of cold water” in Jesus’ name and to provide loving, caring, professional, and passionate service to those that are in need.
Panama Missions 2014
In 2014, two of our high school students participated in a short-term mission trip to Panama. There they used their Spanish language skills, drama, hard work, friendship and compassion to share the gospel of Christ.
Uganda Pathfinder 2013
In early Fall of 2013 the Patherfinder team made our first mission trip to Uganda. This team of two went to participate in training pastors, and to “spy out the land,” making connections with the local leaders, for future partnerships to further the Kingdom. Click here to see the mission reports.
Xai-Xai Wesleyan Bible College 2013
In 2013 we supported a student at the Xai-Xai Wesleyan Bible College in Mozambique.
Project Pakistan 2010
In 2010 we made a commitment that for every dollar we raised toward construction of our new church building we would give 10% of that dollar to help build schools and churches in Pakistan. To date we have given around $50,000 to our Pakistani Church. Pakistan has been in the world news more than ever in recent days and many people in their country are suffering greatly. For our Christian brothers and sisters the situation is oftentimes even worse. As a person commits to following Jesus he is met with social resistance and the family’s children become ostracized in the public schools or are removed from education all together. In this culture a lack of education destines a person for poverty and greatly reduces the personal power and freedom he can enjoy. Therefore, we are working hard to not only give our Christian brothers and sisters safe places to worship, but great places to educate their children as well.
The big project that our contacts in Pakistan are currently engaged in is the creation of a new campus in a rural country region of Pakistan for our main school. This campus is located far enough from the big cities to provide a safe environment and a safe place of education for our boys and girls. The hope is that the new school will house over 100 boys and 100 girls along with separate housing for staff.
We hold an annual Missions Conference, typically in the Spring, where we hear from both our supported missionaries and those who have gone on short-term trips. It is also a time when we share our mission vision for the next year and begin to make our Faith Promises for the coming year. Some of the messages can be found in the sermon archive.
