Open thy mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy. Proverbs 31:9
Welcome to Ministry Beyond Myself
Ministry Beyond Myself (MBM) is a nonprofit Christian organization that serves orphaned and vulnerable children as well as families in low-income communities through sponsorship, pop-up schools, educational and healthcare initiatives and community-building programs.
Above all else, MBM is committed to building lifetime relationships. Our connection is not a business transaction. It is not an opportunity for “us to do something for “them.” It is a mutually beneficial experience where each of us is better because of it. It is a binding of hearts and minds. We don’t simply “go, share, pray” because a community needs our help, but we “go, share, and pray” because we are connected!
Hebrews 11:33, “who through faith conquered kingdoms, administered justice, and gained what was promised…”
Justice– to take responsibility to ensure access to or to implement equity.
Cries for justice can be heard around the world from orphaned children in the Dominican Republic to persecuted families in Burma. Everyone deserves to be safe- free from terror and war. Everyone deserves access to quality housing, education, and healthcare.
EVERYONE deserves these things. Isaiah 6:8 says, Whom shall I send and who will go for us? Will you go? Are you called to administer justice?
Short-term mission trips are often criticized for their lack of long-term impact because of their emphasis on Vacation Bible School and small renovation projects, however because of MBM’s commitment to relationship building we travel to and work with the same communities year after year. We collaborate with community leaders to ensure projects promote sustainable development moving community members towards self-sufficiency.
TO DO JUSTICE is more acceptable than sacrifice. Psalm 106:3
Blessed are they who DO JUSTICE and who treat others fairly, Jeremiah 22:3
EXECUTE JUSTICE and righteousness and deliver out of the hand of the oppressor him who was robbed.
