My latest interview in the Viewpoints series is now available to subscribers at Adventist Today. In this conversation Dave Kennedy shares about the amazing work his congregation is doing through its Christmas offering.
After Dave described how the church raises money at Christmas, I asked how they spend the funds. He explained:
Every year we try to target things that are aligned with the values of Jesus and why He said He came. So we’re targeting hunger, poverty, injustice, injuries from war. So together with the LPGA (Ladies Professional Golf Association), we built a hospital in a community in Rwanda. We have given through ADRA to dig wells in Afghanistan for widows and vulnerable children affected by the war. We have given to our local food bank on numerous occasions. We are giving to help eliminate sex trafficking through International Justice Mission. We are also partners with World Vision.
