Currently Global Advance through our NextGen Engagement is mobilizing the next generation to raise up as leaders in the Church, the marketplace and every sphere of culture to fulfill the Great Commission.
We exist to train the next generation of global church leaders. We do this through a simple, practical and self sustainable model – built on a framework of international experience.
North American Indian Missions
We are a community of believers serving Jesus Christ in a variety of capacities throughout British Columbia, Alberta, and Saskatchewan in Western Canada, and Washington State, Montana, and New Mexico in the USA. An increasing number of staff are First Nations Native believers.
Children’s Relief International
Our journey as an organization began when Alan & Melody Pieratt returned from a decade of missionary service in Brazil. While on furlough in late 1999, they felt called to start a mission that worked among the poor, enabling native missionaries that have a heart for their people. The first meeting of the board of directors was held in March of 2000. Since that time CRI has grown from one project in Mozambique to over a dozen, from one staff member (Alan) to over 60 and from one program that delivers aid to over 20.
Life Action Ministries
Life Action was founded over 40 years ago to spark spiritual change in families, churches, and nations. This is why we call people to authentic Christianity—so the gospel light can shine brightly out of lives transformed by the presence and power of God!
Life Action believes that revitalization in families and churches is the key to transforming our culture for Christ and completing the Great Commission. Sweeping cultural change begins in hearts and in homes; more specifically, it begins with humility.
Operation 220 is a non-profit, non-denominational organization whose purpose is to help Christians experience what is rightfully theirs- victory in Christ!
This is accomplished through a three-fold approach:
- Discipleship Training
Embrace Grace, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization formed for the purpose of providing emotional, practical and spiritual support for single, young women and their families who find themselves in an unintended pregnancy. The primary goal of Embrace Grace is to empower churches across the nation to be a safe and non-judging place for the girls to run to when they find out they are pregnant, instead of the last place they are welcomed because of shame and guilt.
Search was founded in 1977 on the basis that availability and authenticity open doors for honest conversations about life and God. We are grounded in the premise that people connect with one another by asking questions, exploring answers, and inviting conversations. We see a need in our world to welcome these conversations in settings that allow for open and adventurous dialogue.
If variety is the spice of life, our retail shops offer specialty merchandise that includes everything from designer jeans to furniture, antiques to year-round Christmas decorations and gifts for life’s every occasion.
