  • carriage town ministries

    Far more than "just" a shelter, CTM provides vital life training and education.  Our clients are given a Personal Success Plan (PSP) that helps them establish not just goals, but also a plan for achieving those goals.  Every person we serve has a unique story and unique set of needs.  Our prayer is for great change to take place in the hearts and lives of all who come to CTM.

international missions

As a church, we invest in God's mission across the globe through a number of organizations and missionary families. We unite in prayer, financially, and at times we are able to provide physical support through mission trips and/or gathering goods and supplies to ship overseas.  Here's some ways you can invest in God's mission with us:

  • son international

    Missionaries working with SON International serve  neighbors through community development initiatives, by sharing the love of Jesus Christ while establishing relationships, educating, and improving the standard of living for those that are unreached by the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our goal is to open doors for the Gospel to all who will listen, while Serving Our Neighbor.

  • send international

    About 1/3 of the world’s population lives outside the reach of the local church—they have no opportunity to hear the gospel. SEND International, an evangelical mission, mobilizes missionaries to engage them with the gospel and establish reproducing churches.

  • okipe

    Haiti is the poorest country in the Western hemisphere.  La Gonave is an island, about 10 miles by 30 miles in size, where approximately 120,000 Haitians reside. Many years ago, La Gonave was used as the place where “undesirables” were sent from the mainland… criminals, the sick, the elderly…  Haiti is poor and broken… La Gonave became the place one could find “the least of these”.

    Today, a new story is unfolding…  One of these stories is taking place in a small orphanage called, “The Jesus Home for Children of La Gonave”.  You can be a part of this story today!  Together, we can help give “the least of these” a future and a hope.
