The Abraham Project is dedicated to serving and transforming our local community through evangelism, discipleship, and social involvement. We desire that children, youth, and adults come to know the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and that they are discipled in their walk of faith.
The love of Jesus is demonstrated by serving the surrounding communities through the following five ministries:
Serves as the church’s main sanctuary and for the following activities:
- Programs for the children from the Daycare and the children’s homes.
- Outreach to youth at risk from the surrounding communities.
- Training/competition in different sports (basketball, soccer, volleyball, etc.)
- Concerts, community meetings, watch sporting events, theatrical presentations, among other things.
There are a total of 2 children’s homes currently being used to permanently house children at risk. Many of these are children who have been or are in the process of being declared abandoned by the government. What makes our children’s homes uniquely different is that they are staffed by a Christian couple, referred to as tios, providing the children with a great example of a stable, normal home setting.
The house parents are responsible for overseeing the daily operations.
The priority of the Daycare center is to offer parents a safe alternative for their children. We collaborate with parents, who for question of work or other urgent social situations, need us to watch their children.
The children participate in structured educational lessons (such as English, cultural themes, etc.), games, activities, and crafts. The Daycare center also supplies meals for the children who do not have food to eat in their homes and attends to the spiritual and psychological needs of each child.
Daycare runs from 6:15 am – 5:45 pm for approximately 225 children.
We have offices where professionals (i.e. dentists, therapists, psychologists, etc.) can donate their time (a few hours, 1/2 a day, or even an entire day) to people in the surrounding communities. Many of the people that live in the surrounding areas are considered low-income families, so services are provided free or at a very minimal cost to the individual.
We provide training to help people learn specific skills that will facilitate finding a job or starting a small business. Some of the classes that are offered include:
- Computer skills
- Artisan crafts
- cooking, sewing, among others.
