We need your help. The Center is making a difference  as we prepare men and women like you to share God’s love with our neighbors who have come from a variety of cultures and religions. We need your prayer support and your financial support. We need to build an endowment for the Center so that these ministries can continue. We would love to talk with you about tithing your will with support for the Center. For more information, contact the Office of Church Relations at 1-800-334-4111 ext. 1849.
