The gospel is not only good news to be believed with the mind but to be lived out—the gospel has hands and feet. At Renaissance, we believe God has called us to be intentional about meeting immediate practical needs with the ultimate goal of meeting eternal spiritual needs. We do this both locally and globally for the sake of his name.
Local ministries that we have partnered with include:

New Horizons for Children
We are a nationwide orphan ministry that works with families from coast-to-coast, including Puerto Rico. We provide families the unique ministry opportunity to share Christ’s love with orphans for a 4-5 week visit during the summer and around Christmas. We have a team that works with orphanages and foster homes in the Eastern Europe countries of Latvia and Ukraine to bring the school-aged children to the US to stay with Christian host families. This can be a life-changing experience for the orphans who have never been a part of a loving, functional family. And at their age, 6-16 years old, they are the least likely candidates to ever be adopted; most believe they are unwanted and have no hope of ever knowing life in a real family.
Bethany Christian Services
Adoption is a beautiful way to grow your family. You can provide a loving, nurturing home for a vulnerable child. Let Bethany help you welcome an infant, an older child, or a child from another country into your family.
If you are pregnant and need someone to talk to, you are not alone. Bethany is here to provide you with support and guidance as you seek to make the best choice for yourself and your unborn child. There is no cost to you for this service. Please contact us if you or someone you know is pregnant and needs help.
Through Bethany’s Foster Care program and our Safe Families ministry, we seek to provide temporary care for children. Our ultimate goal is to ensure that they have a safe, loving family through either reuniting them with their biological family or finding an adoptive family for those who cannot return to their biological parents. Thousands of children need a loving family who will walk with them during a time of crisis and welcome them unconditionally into a caring home. Could you be that family?
Children’s Impact Network
Children’s Impact Network is a nonprofit organization, which demonstrates God’s love through mission projects around the world, to children and youth at-risk, and trains, equips and networks leaders to do the same.
