Oklahoma Region's People-to-People-Pilgrimage group raises funds for Caminante

ok2.jpgIn 2017, the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Oklahoma organized a Global Ministries People-to-People Pilgrimage to visit global partner, Caminante in the Dominican Republic. This is a pilgrimage the region has offered each summer for the past nine years. Each year, the group participants think of different material items to bring from Oklahoma that will support the work of Caminante. As this year’s group began planning, they decided to raise funds for Caminante’s growing summer outreach programs – the programs the group would be participating in during their pilgrimage.

Global Ideas for VBS, Camps, and other Summer Activities with Children and Youth

DSCN2260.JPGGlobal Ministries works in collaboration with global partners to provide food, healthcare, clothing, and in some cases housing, school fees, uniform, books and training, and livelihood opportunities to many children in Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean, the Middle East and Europe. Below are five global partners who are providing life-giving ministries for Children and Youth that you can support as a way to engage and participate in God's global mission. 

All financial gifts for projects are sent in their entirety for the designated purpose to our global partners. No administrative fees are taken from gifts to Global Ministries because of the faithful giving from our churches to Our Church's Wider Mission and the Disciples Mission Fund.

Financial gifts are the most helpful way to assist global partner churches and programs for youth, because financial gifts allow the partners to purchase what they need most, and shipping materials are often costly and problematic for receiving.  However, a few partners are able to accept material shipments. If you are interested in collecting and sending materials to global partners working with children, find out more here

Alternative Gifts

Your gift makes a difference today in lives around the world! 
agcatalogcover.PNGWe are gift-giving people. We celebrate important dates, accomplishments and events through the giving of gifts. The sections below invite you to make alternative gifts in recognition of these celebrations.  Many give alternative gifts at Christmas time, to recognize a birthday or anniversary, or to memorialize a life well-lived. 

You are invited to give Alternative Gifts all year long, knowing that at the same time you are participating in the witness to God's global mission as carried out by partner churches and programs throughout the world. 

To participate in this sharing of God's abundant life you can give online or by sending a check along with the Order Form.
