Missio Dei Church believes the motivation for offering compassion ministries is to point people to the person of Jesus Christ and the Good News of salvation. We believe that the reason for the existence of compassion ministries is to show Jesus to people as the ultimate human example of compassion, bringing the Good News of salvation to all! Therefore we have a "glocal" (global and local) mindset!
Because of this, we support the following ministries:
