Learn to do good. Seek justice. Correct oppression. Bring justice to the fatherless. Plead the widow's cause.
The One Seventeen Project provides local churches with opportunities, resources, tools, and best practices for hospitality and mercy ministries.
Showing the love and mercy of the gospel is great, but it isn't enough. The gospel is more than just doing good. We must also tell.
How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!” [...] So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.Romans 10:14-15,17
We can't just "do" - we must also tell. Doing good to others tills the soil of their hearts to receive the seed of the Gospel. At its very core, the Gospel is verbal.
To further the training and equipping the local church, we partner with individuals and organizations for internships, missions trips, staffing, and financial support. Would you consider furthering the mission of One Seventeen Project?
We always have a need. From providing housing for interns, to supplies for our summer day camps and missions trips, we are dependent on our financial partners.
