WHAT IS GIVE HOPE?

In 2014, RADIUS Church realized that we had a limited vision into the true needs in our community.  We knew that we needed trusted partners that had day to day insight into the lives of families within our community.  Partners that also wanted to do good and take care of these hidden needs.  That’s when Give Hope was born.

Give Hope is a partnership between RADIUS Church and trusted community partners  to take care of our community.  Funds are quickly and effectively funneled through vetted partners such as school administrators, teachers, counselors, and various community organizations to take care of crisis needs as they arise – not just at Christmas – but all throughout the year.

YOUR GENEROSITY MAKES A DIFFERENCE!

Over the last 7 years, we’ve established partnerships with schools in 7 districts and were able to give to families through 64 schools. Our partnerships also include organizations like Ezekiel Center and Mission Lexington.  Below are a few stories from our Give Hope partners.

EZEKIEL MINISTRIES

Ezekiel Ministries exists to share the love and truth of Jesus to families in inner-city Columbia and across the Midlands. They provide an after school program at RADIUS Church – Lexington that develops literacy, includes a mentoring program and ends with a Bible lesson. At RADIUS Church – White Knoll, they provide a Wednesday night program that includes dinner for the kids, a Bible lesson, and lots of fun!  Their hope is to strengthen the mind, body and soul of each student in their program. Their long term goals are to strengthen the family structure and help families break the cycle of generational poverty. RADIUS financially supports Ezekiel Ministries with a yearly donation of $78,000.
