ServLife’s Vision and Mission Statements are rooted in a holistic understanding of the Gospel, and Jesus launching his ministry in Luke 4 to “proclaim good news to the poor” and “release to the captives.” Their Vision is a dream that is an inevitable reality; Their Mission is the part that we can all play in the fulfillment of this Vision.
ServLife International propels reconciliation and justice by building global community to plant churches, care for children and fight poverty.
twenty8 | twenty7
As a for-purpose organization that responds ‘GLOCALLY’ to spiritual and physical needs, twenty8 | twenty7 was founded out of a firm comittment and responsibility to be faithful to what was given to us to steward, and to those who partner with us. We’ve been given a special heart and passion for the fatherless and those in unnecessary distress.
Our approach to our projects passes through a guiding filter, and it’s in our name. In Matthew 28:18-20, there is a commission to go, make disciples, and to form them in the practices and postures that Christ taught. James 1:27 speaks of caring for the orphan, the widow, and those in unnecessary distress. We don’t believe that one response fits all. How we do respond varies by project, environment, and culture.
Green Door Project
CRI credits Millard Fuller, founder of Habitat for Humanity, for the vision behind their Green Door Home project. They build low-cost cement block homes with wood trusses and tin roofs—sturdy enough to last a lifetime. Chosen by a local committee, recipients of a Green Door home are usually orphans and widows. They ask these new home owners to help as they are able with construction and to attend home stewardship classes.
Why the name “Green Door?” The color green recalls the gift of life that God created in Genesis 1. Painting the front door green signifies an act of completion, and is a witness to Christ in the neighborhood.
We have built over 100 homes to date. Will you help us build more?
