Haven Support of Missions and New Church Plants
Since the founding of Haven Church we have had a heart for Missions and we have committed to a faith promise to support outside works. Most of the missionaries we have supported have ties to our church, with many attending Haven Church while they are in Bible College at Southeastern FWB Bible College in Wendell.  We are currently supporting two new church plants, as three of the churches we supported in 2022 (Flagship, Glad Tidings, and Beacon Church) went self-supporting in 2022.  We also support the Harvest Child Care Ministries in Duffield, VA.  This is a great ministry that takes in abused and neglected children and provides a safe, Christian atmosphere for healing and development.  All of the works we support are reaching out to their communities to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ to lost and hurting people.  We’re so happy to be a part of these ministries from right here in the Raleigh / Cary area. 
Every year during the Christmas season we receive a “Haven’s Greatest Gift” offering that is designated to outside ministries, including missions. other supported ministries or tuition for Southeastern FWB College students. 
In December of 2022, Haven’s Greatest Gift offering went to a local ministry, the Raleigh Dream Center.  RDC is a Christian-based, volunteer driven organization providing residential and community outreach programs to homeless, abused and impoverished high-risk youth, individuals and families.  They partner with local churches to CONSISTENTLY provide resources to under-privileged communities and reach out to those individuals in substance abuse, physical abuse, experiencing homelessness, participating in gangs, or other circumstances.

Matthew 25:35 Project
Beginning in 2022, Haven Church began a new initiative called the Matthew 25:35 Project.   We prepare a warm meal during Thanksgiving week and distribute to our community to show the love of Christ. You can join us in support of this work by providing food, committing to deliver meals, or supporting the work financially.  We want to bring hope to people that are hurting or neglected or struggling during these difficult times.  That is what being the hands and feet of Jesus is all about.
