Biking for Transportation

Bicycles For Pastors projects through The Advance provide the only means many pastors in locations on the continents of Africa and Asia are able to travel. Two wheels can go where the terrain or lack of fuel prohibits. Find a mission project at advancinghope.org.

Undesignated Gifts

Undesignated gifts provide the ability for immediate response to mission needs that are unaccounted for, or in cases where insufficient funds are available for a designated need. Visit Givetomission.org to make a gift and make a difference.
