Community & Global Initiatives

Participating in God's mission of blessing the nations in Christ.

What is Community & Global Initiatives?

We strongly believe that all members of the body of Christ are sent people, called to proclaim and demonstrate the gospel to the world. In response to the needs in our community, and God’s heart for the nations, we build global partnerships and facilitate opportunities to participate in God’s mission of blessing the nations in Christ.

Redemption Gilbert participates in many ways with programs and partnerships around the city, nation and globe but we have an intentional focus on:

Three horizons of ministry: Close, Near, & Far.

2020 Advent Offering | Nov 29th - Dec 24th

Every Christmas season during Advent, culminating at our Christmas Eve services, we collect an Offering that is above and beyond our regular giving.

These funds are distributed to partnerships and initiatives that are Close, Near and Far. You can give throughout the Advent Season through the offering boxes located at the Worship Center exits, at the Main Office or online at the link below.

Follow the links below to see how God is using our church to impact each of these partnerships.

Close: Redemption Foster Care, Kinship & Adoption

There is an orphan crisis around the world. Children who have lost parents, been abandoned by parents, or been taken out of dangerous environments, are in need of stable homes and loving families.

The Book of James tells us that caring for vulnerable children is close to the heart of God. Therefore we, the people of God, must lead the way in recognizing this great need and stepping up to meet it.

This issue is very near to us. Arizona has a massive foster care crisis, with thousands of children in the foster care system. The state simply does not have enough homes to care for them all and they are asking for the church’s help.

Near: Redemption in Alaska

Tanalian Bible Camp exists to come alongside the Bible-believing churches in rural Alaska by providing an opportunity for evangelism, discipleship, and Christian fellowship through camping, conferences, retreats, and Biblical education.

Additional Close Initiatives | Arizona

Jesus taught that whatever we do for the marginalized and poor, we do for Him. Redemption Gilbert regularly supports organizations in our community to help reach and impact these populations.

“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.” -Matthew 25
