The Christmas season is a celebration of God the Father giving His Son to the world as part of the process of redeeming all things to Himself. “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given” (Isaiah 9:6 ESV). This is the most extravagant gift ever given, and we are invited to take part in the continual sharing of this gift of Jesus with the world around us.
When he was in the fourth grade, Andrew Delzer started a non-profit called Klothes 4 KIN that partners with clothing closets, schools, and community organizations to provide clothes for kids in need. This ministry began when Andrew’s family decided to give Christmas away after years of teachings on and practical applications of missional living at Century Baptist Church in Bismarck, North Dakota. Clothes 4 KIN was born out of Andrew experiencing the gift of Jesus and his desire to find a way he could give Christ’s love to his community.
Andrew’s story is just one of many at Century. Watch the videos to hear more! These acts of service flow directly out of a soul-level understanding of what it means to live as people who have been sent by God to share the gift of Christ with the world around them.
It is the vision of the NAB International Office to see every NAB church equipping their people to reach into their neighborhoods with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to provide every NAB pastor and leader who desires it with the resources and training to equip them in this monumental effort. One of the main funding sources for this sort of missional training comes through the Ministry Resource Fund. While much has been done already in our movement, we have just scratched the surface, so your support is crucial.
Consider how you can join in supporting these efforts by actively serving in your community or by giving to the Ministry Resource Fund. Your gift will go a long way toward resourcing churches across North America and will help empower churches to reach new communities for the Gospel through multiplication, encouraging and cultivating pastors and leaders through ongoing spiritual formation, and supporting churches seeking to establish long-term international partnerships through short-term mission trips.
Above all, when you give you are directly participating in the work of sharing the gift of God’s Son with our communities and our world. Thank you for choosing to partner with us by giving of yourself.
