World Mission Ministry at Central Union Church
The World Mission Ministry at Central Union Church in Honolulu celebrated Renewal Sunday on September 11, 2011. Part of the vision of the Ministry is to encompass the congregation of Central Union Church at-large with a goal to educate, sensitize, call to action and build person-to- person, people-to-people bonds in the name of Christ, supporting community-based programs throughout the world. One great example is the Heifer Project, which the World Ministry aims to raise $5,000 to provide gifts of livestock and training, to help families throughout the world to improve their nutrition and generate income in sustainable ways. The Heifer Project refer to the animals as “living loans” because in exchange for their livestock and training, families agree to give one of its animal’s offspring to another family in need. It’s called “Passing on the Gift,” which in turns help address the issue of hunger and poverty.
