ministries that is.  Here are some wonderful ministries that we have enjoyed supporting and learning from.  Hope you will check some out.

  • Youth Haven Ranch       Youth Haven is a year-round, 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to meeting the emotional and physical needs of today’s disadvantaged children.  All children attend Youth Haven free of any charge or obligation.  Children’s programs include year-round weekend experiences, week-long summer sessions, weekly Kids’ Klub after-school activities, a Caring Clowns outreach, and extensive follow-up.This non-denominational Christian organization was founded in 1968 by Morry and Dorothy Carlson, along with their son Larry and his wife Cheri.  In 1997, Larry and Cheri’s son Lars, along with his wife Amy,  joined the team and continue to carry out the founding vision of his grandparents and parents.


    The children who come to Youth Haven face various negative influences and circumstances such as abuse, neglect, broken homes or poverty.  Some have experienced tragic losses or suffer from the devastating effects of drug and alcohol abuse.  The boys and girls are referred to the Ranch by welfare agencies, school counselors, social service agencies, churches, family members, and parents.  Sadly, many of the children who attend Youth Haven’s programs believe they have no real hope for the future.  As our dedicated staff spend time with them and express compassion, the children discover that someone does care about them, and that they are valuable.


    At Youth Haven, we share with these boys and girls that they are valuable and loved unconditionally.  Our programs offer a variety of fun activities to challenge them physically and mentally.  When they leave Youth Haven, they have a new outlook on life, and they are eager to dream, hope and set goals for a bright future.

  • Living Proof Ministries 

    Living Proof Ministries is dedicated to Biblical literacy and a commitment to guide believers to love and live on God’s Word.  Every tape, book or product offered through this ministry is developed to encourage people to know Christ through His Word.

      For the Word of God is living and active. Sharper than any two edged sword.”  Hebrew 4:12

    Living Proof was founded upon this verse. It is our desire to see people discover and fully experience this truth for themselves.

    Living Proof Ministries exists because of the grace and mercy of Christ. It will always exist to glorify Him alone.

    He is real.
             He is alive.
                        And His Word will make a difference in your life.

  • Harvest Outreach Ministries  Greg Laurie is a wonderful Pastor and puts together large crusades.  He is on the radio and writes books.  He is Pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship.

  • Samaritans Purse (as mentioned before in another post)    They do lots of ministries as well as Operation Christmas Child.

These are just a few as I said but hopefully you will add yours.

I do always recommend checking out a organization before you donate.  ECFA is which is a ECFA is an accreditation agency dedicated to helping Christian ministries earn the public’s trust through adherence to seven Standards of Responsible Stewardship.
