Redeemer Global Ministries Partnerships and Mission Trips:
Global Ministries at Redeemer celebrate God’s love and presence in every corner of the earth and serve in strategic relationships with our brothers and sisters in Christ around the world.
Nicaragua (since 2004)—Sharing the love of Jesus Christ through medical, educational, and relational efforts. Redeemer takes an annual early summer medical mission trip (though non-medical personnel often come as support), and every 2-3 years we take a high school trip to Nicaragua as well. In 2008 Redeemer was instrumental in establishing the Christian Academy of Las Torres. www.caltnica.org. You can follow the Team Nicaragua Medical Mission Team on Facebook.
Hong Kong—We support Janey and Ted Zimmerman at the Lutheran Theological Seminary (almost 300 students from China and Southeast Asia) for training future leaders in churches all over Asia. This is a ministry of relational prayer and support. www.lts.edu
Ethiopia (since 2008)—Sharing the love of Jesus Christ through relationships and water projects (so far have provided at least 12 hand water pumps). Projects are coordinated with the Mekane Yesus Ministry for Rural development and are planned in conjunction with the Southeastern Synod, ELCA, with Redeemer as a strong anchor. An annual mission trip to install water pumps takes place usually in January or February so as to avoid the rainy season. www.eecmy.org
Haiti (since 2010)—Relationship with the Haitian Timoun Foundation to help create a future of hope, sustainability, and dignity for the children of Haiti. We proclaim Christ through development, children’s ministry, and medical support. www.htflive.org
ELCA Global Mission (since 1988)—Redeemer is a member congregation of the Southeastern Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). We provide substantial financial support, a portion of which is combined with resources from other congregations to accomplish global ministry in ways that we could not do on our own. Learn more at www.elca.org/Who-We-Are/Our-Three-Expressions/Churchwide-Organization/Global-Mission.aspx.
Quilting Group—Redeemer’s quilters, who meet twice a month on Monday mornings, have provided over 10,000 quilts to the global community at the rate of nearly 500 per year. All of our quilts are donated for global distribution by Lutheran World Relief. Call the church at 404 874-8664 for more information.
