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 support 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 five new church plants, with three of these (Flagship , Glad Tidings, and Beacon Church) going 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. 
Matthew 25:35 Project
 
Beginning this year, Haven Church will drive a new initiative called the Matthew 25:35 Project.   We will connect with local charities to provide a warm meal during Thanksgiving week to show the love of Christ to our community. Feel free to 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.

Harvest Free Will Baptist Child Care Ministries is a non-profit agency that provides a loving home-like atmosphere for abused, neglected, abandoned and troubled children.  Harvest CCM’s philosophy is based on the belief that a healthy Christian home environment, caring parents, and a wholesome family life are fundamental necessities, if not rights, for every child.
