“Sharing Christ with Compassion” these are the words that start our mission statement. This is how we measure everything we do. In fact, I’m pretty confident that this is how God measures a life.
We know the only answer for Tacoma, Pierce County, and our world is Jesus. The only way to hear about that answer is through people. And you know the old adage: “People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care” – compassion!
“… whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me” – Matthew 25:40
LOCAL: STUDENTS IN NEED (SPORTS CAMP & GIAUDRONE MIDDLE SCHOOL)
Each summer Discovery provides a transformative opportunity in SPORTS CAMP. We serve hundreds of kids from this community, providing a fun, safe, and encouraging platform to hear the life-changing message of Jesus Christ. Kids learn about Jesus through games, skits, music, and good ole-fashion fun. This year we will further our partnership with Giaudrone Middle School (GMS). We believe every student deserves an equal opportunity to succeed. Unfortunately, many of our local students are going without the basics (clean clothes, adequate food, and school supplies). Through our continued partnership with GMS, a school with a high percentage of under-served kids in our area, we can help resource these kids with what they need to succeed.
NATIONAL: CHURCH PLANTING
Discovery is committed to launch new ministries. We believe it is part of our calling. With a partnership through Northwest Baptist Convention, we will help plant new churches, allowing more children to hear the Good News of Jesus Christ.
GLOBAL: SERVE THE CHILDREN
You can help hundreds of the most vulnerable kids in poverty-stricken regions of Africa and India by meeting their educational, emotional, and physical needs through the ministry of Serve the Children. Together we can provide education, counseling, and a loving – secure home for children impacted by war, poverty, and most recently Ebola.
