Hosea’s Heart empowers the girls of Eswatini to achieve freedom from sexual abuse and find hope for a better future by serving their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs.

Nearly one-third of the population of Ethiopia lives on less than $1.90 a day. In rural Ethiopia, where 80% of people live, over 65% of the population still lacks access to basic water services.

Pastor Lawrence Kirby, a teaching pastor at Great Lakes Church, is one of the founding pastors of One Voice, a new multi-ethnic and multi-generational church in southeast Wisconsin.
Our generosity will be focused on helping fund the renovation of a newly acquired meeting location that will bring hope and unity to our area.

Shalom Center

Our goal is to be part of giving life-changing aid to families who need it most by providing much-needed equipment for the Food Pantry and Soup Kitchen.


In 2011, we helped launch Saints Community Church. Today, they are a thriving faith community making a big difference.  However, in late summer, Hurricane Ida brought devastation to this church and community, affecting people’s ability to faithfully give.

We want to step in and help cover basic operational expenses, enabling the church to focus on serving the people of New Orleans!


A week-long summer camp gives every student space to lower their walls, form friendships, and experience God in fresh ways.

Our goal is to reduce the cost of camp by 50%, giving every student from Great Lakes Church an opportunity to connect with God!
