Compassion For The World
The World Engagement Group is a diverse group of men and women with varying ages, cultural backgrounds and life experiences.
In 2008, a group of believers at Ginger Creek sought God in prayer for how and where He would have us approach international engagement. GC became involved with Feed My Starving Children, an organization specializing in distributing nutritional meals to the poor and malnourished of the world. We ̈followed the food ̈ to see where it went and how it was used. In doing so, we traveled to Nicaragua and met local church leaders where some of the food ended up. In the early years, this led to GC working with two local pastors around Managua who also shared God’s concern for the broken. We still partner in the Managua area. In more recent years, we began partnering with Food for the Hungry in the remote northern village of Las Mariítas.
OUR MISSION — We commit to the Great Commandment (Mark 12:29-31) and the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20) by exploring and experiencing together how an integral faith in God and a biblical worldview changes lives, relationships, communities and countries.
OUR PASSION — to learn and serve across cultural boundaries
Jorge & Mónica
Ginger Creek Community Church partners in Nicaragua (María, Jorge and Mónica) are eager this year to share with other Nicaraguans how God has been transforming their own poverty-stricken communities and instilling God-honoring self-worth and dignity as the community slowly develops. They want to share how they are learning to daily take steps to rise above poverty and hunger–how to THRIVE instead of just SURVIVE–how God is satisfying physical needs while providing ¨food ¨for the soul.
Nicaragua Fair Trade Coffee
Ginger Creek partners in many ways with Nicaragua to support transformation of hearts and lives. You have the opportunity every Sunday to enjoy a cup of Nicaraguan School Grounds fair trade coffee in the Gathering Room between services. The Fabretto Children’s Foundation organic coffee not only benefits Nicaraguan coffee farmers, but also benefits Ginger Creek’s two long-term Nicaraguan partner ministries, the New Jerusalem Christian School of La Chureca Managua city dump led by Pastora María and the Gran Familia church of the remote rural village of Pochocuape, led by Pastor Jorge and Mónica. Fabretto’s mission is to empower underserved children and their families to reach their full potential, improve their livelihoods and take advantage of economic opportunity through education and nutrition.
