We believe that our generosity can best meets real needs when we can work in partnership with organizations who are better equipped to help meet real needs in our communities and around the world. To that end we’ve partnered with the following organizations:
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.
Lighthouse for Life
Lighthouse for Life is an organization seeking to stop human trafficking and provide grace and restoration to victims. Their education program shares the severity of human trafficking in the United States with churches, schools and other organizations in order to help communities spot and protect themselves from trafficking. Recently, Lighthouse for Life opened Karis Home, a place of rest designed to provide long-term restorative care for female survivors of sex trafficking. Lighthouse for Life offices out of RADIUS- Lexington. RADIUS financially supports Lighthouse for Life with a monthly donation of $1,000.
Mission Lexington is the hub of care for Lexington County, assisting families and individuals with life essentials, resources, and guidance. Through a network of over 50 churches, donations from local businesses, government agencies, organizations and individuals, Mission Lexington is able to meet over 30,000 needs a year. In 2018, RADIUS Church began conducting all local generosity through Mission Lexington and has partnered with them financially with a monthly donation of $1,000.
GEMS - India
In India, RADIUS partners with GEMS-India. Pastor Stephen is using his resources to equip local believers to be priests by building a school. The focus of the school is quality education in an English-immersion setting that takes a holistic approach to each child. In addition to this he also runs a seminary through his home, where local pastors are trained and then sent out to their towns to make disciples and plant additional churches. To date, GEMS-India has planted 67 churches and trained 185 pastors. In 2018, RADIUS partnered with GEMS through donations that were used as capital investments to expand St. Paul’s School and to do medical work in the southern part of India. We plan to give GEMS $75,000 in the next twelve months.
Empower One is an organization that plants churches among refugees in north east Africa. The RADIUS family is partnering with Empower One to plant churches among two unreached people groups in South Sudan, namely, the Jur and the Ingessana. These places are remote and hard to reach with the Gospel. One of these tribes is of another world religion. Specifically, RADIUS Church is providing support for two church planters along with their tools and transportation. Among the Ingessana, we are funding a local institute that will train 30 church planters in a one year program. These places are unreached for Christ! Our support for Empower One includes $35,000 over the next twelve months.
We are proud to partner with Hydromissions International to provide clean water wells for drinking and sanitation all over the globe. Hydromissions’ goal is to further the gospel of Jesus Christ worldwide by providing safe water through low-tech and/or technologically appropriate products and services. Our partnership is all-inclusive as RADIUS has the privilege to support Hydromissions financially with a monthly donation of $2,000 as well as sending folks to serve overseas on various trips throughout the year.
