AN ORGANIZATION DEDICATED TO FIGHTING POVERTY

WHERE THERE IS SICKNESS, WHERE THERE IS HUNGER, WHERE THERE IS SUFFERING, THERE IS POVERTY

WE WORK TO TRANSFORM LIVES AND COMMUNITIES BY CREATING PATHWAYS OUT OF POVERTY

We believe that poverty precedes a world of evils; human trafficking, child labor, disease, malnutrition, etc. Many of these issues are solved when people escape poverty. Thus, our primary focus is poverty alleviation.

We also believe that free enterprise is one of the best ways to address poverty. This is why we focus on creating opportunities that empower people to start and grow their own businesses.

Love people. Take care of widows & orphans. Feed the hungry. Clothe the naked. Care for the sick.  

Jesus

“In dealing with poverty here and around the world, welfare and foreign aid are a Band-Aid. Free enterprise is a cure.”   

Bono

I invite you to join us this Sunday at Discovery Church Prescott

Theodore Roosevelt said ..in a speech called THE MAN IN THE ARENA
“It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.”

Speech at the Sorbonne, Paris…

Is There Not A Cause? #IAMDISCOVERYCHURCH

I Am Discovery with Aaron Prudler and Dan Hight.

trucker-hat-sundat

“Is there not a cause?” – 1 Samuel 17:29

I AM DISCOVERY
Part 8
I am not yet discovered

It has always been my ambition to preach the gospel where Christ was not known, so that I would not be building on someone else’s foundation.
– Romans 15:20 (niv)

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. 15 John bore witness of Him and cried out, saying, “This was He of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me is preferred before me, for He was before me.’” 16 And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace. John 1:14-16 (nkjv)
I love that. “Full of grace and truth.” Not the balance between, but the full embodiment of. Jesus did not come to strike a balance between grace and truth. He brought the full measure of both. John had seen this firsthand. He had watched Jesus apply the full measure of grace and truth to each individual they encountered.
“full of grace and truth.”

Door number one? – Church of TRUTH.
Door number two? – Church of GRACE
Door number three? – Church of GRACE and TRUTH

 

Jesus said to a woman caught in adultery, “I don’t condemn you, now leave your life of sin.” Translated: “You’re a sinner. What you did is a sin. It was wrong. But I don’t condemn you. I’m not going to give you what you deserve. I’m extending to you exactly what you don’t deserve: grace.” Jesus didn’t try to balance grace and truth. He didn’t water down the law. He didn’t put a condition on grace. He gave her a full dose of both.

 

1. Just as I am, without one plea, But that Thy blood was shed for me,
And that Thou bid’st me come to Thee, O Lamb of God, I come! I come!

2. Just as I am, and waiting not To rid my soul of one dark blot;
To Thee whose blood can cleanse each spot, O Lamb of God, I come, I come!

3. Just as I am, though tossed about With many a conflict, many a doubt;
Fightings within, and fears without, O Lamb of God, I come, I come!

4. Just as I am, poor, wretched, blind; Sight, riches, healing of the mind;
Yes, all I need, in Thee to find, O Lamb of God, I come, I come!

5. Just as I am, Thou wilt receive, Wilt welcome, pardon, cleanse, relieve;
Because Thy promise I believe, O Lamb of God, I come, I come!

6. Just as I am, Thy love unknown Has broken every barrier down;
Now, to be Thine, yea, Thine alone, O Lamb of God, I come, I come!

What a great day with our “trucker tribe”.
