BEE World: "BEE World provides seminary level biblical education to pastors and church leadership who have limited access to such education. Most of these leaders live in restricted access countries. Our ministry vision is to provide access to effective life-changing biblical training to those leaders desiring to mature as a disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ. With the explosive expansion of Christ's church, a huge leadership crisis is growing. Currently, 5,000,000 pastors need training and 4,000,000 more pastors are needed for existing congregations. Many of the churches in restricted access countries are most severely affected by the current leadership crisis." Find out more about BEE World on their web site at Listen to Arch Rutherford's May 16, 2010 message on the "Transition from the former Age of Law to the present Age of Grace."

Glenhaven Youth Ranch, Plainview, Arkansas, For nearly twenty years, Glenhaven has provided long-term, Christian residential placement for young men at risk. It is a place of peace and beauty, isolated from many of the adverse outside influences of the world. As the cattle quietly graze in the pastures, the homes and school are a hub of activity and learning. It is in these settings, that young men come to terms with the struggles that each have inside of themselves. The young men who come to live at Glenhaven have behavior problems, which include rebellion and disobedience. Most are behind academically, or have some form of learning disability. Many of the young men have a history of neglect, abandonment or abuse. Their fathers are often absent from their lives due to death or divorce. Consequently, these young men experience difficulty in developing healthy relationships and struggle to trust other people or God. *Supported by Spokane Bible Church

Operation Grace World Missions: Operation Grace World Missions supports Christian ministries proclaiming the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ throughout the world. Though each of these ministries are completely independent, they share common values and the goal of accurately presenting the message that God offers eternal salvation to everyone through faith alone in Christ alone. Most of these ministries seek to establish local churches with indigenous Pastor-Teachers. We provide operating funds as believers are motivated by their appreciation of the Word of God to contribute voluntarily to the dissemination of the Gospel and Bible Doctrine. OGWM never solicits funds; however, we unabashedly solicit your prayers on behalf of those we serve.
