LOCAL & GLOBAL PARTNERSHIPS
For more information about how to get involved with any of our local or international partners, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
HAITI: We have partnered with Greater Works Outreach to financially support an orphanage for young girls with a monthly gift that covers the living expenses of 20 girls. We also take a missions team and travel to Haiti 1-2 times per year to help meet the practical and spiritual needs of these young girls who have lost everything.
INDIA: Mike & Paula Fisher attended Amplify for many years before being called to India over 20 years ago. Over their years in India, they have mentored numerous Indian leaders who have impacted the nation through church planting and many other ministries. The impact of Mike & Paula's decision to relocate their family and pour their lives into this calling has resulted in thousands of transformed lives!
UGANDA: In conjunction with Compassion International, we have partnered with Mukono Deliverance Church in Mukono, Uganda, to rescue children from spiritual, economical, social and physical poverty. The members and attendees of Amplify sponsor 275 Compassion children in this impoverished part of the world. Once a year we lead a missions team to Uganda to bring the hope of and love of Jesus and help meet the practical needs of these children and families.
THE BLESSING BOARD: The Blessing Board, located in Oakmont, connects unused and unwanted donated household items with people in need of those items. Since its inception in 2005, thousands of families throughout Allegheny County have received blessings from The Blessing Board. Over 500 calls are currently received per month and, due to space constraints, on average only 50 of those families can be helped.
