Child Help International
CHI is all about implementing resuce and encouraging churches to be James 1:27 churches. Care for orphans and widows is what God calls 'pure religion' and CHI wants to see those cared for who are most marginalized.
Team Expansion Staff
Penny grew up @ SCC & we have supported their work & the founding of Team Expansion from the beginning. Her husband Doug is the president of Team Expansion & she does ministry for the Missionary Kids program there.
Missionaries to Kagoshima, Japan
Walter & Mary have been doing the work of evangelism and church planting in Japan for decades, and Shively has been supporting them in this effort.
Through a team of missionaries and Team Expansion, Shively Christian Church has been supporting a church planting effort in different cities in Italy. Although people in Italy know who Jesus is, it is a mostly post-Christian culture. We are essentially reintroducing them to Him in a personal way through their work and ministry.
P & F Families
Shively Christian Church supports a mission team introducing Christ to a people group that is fairly resistant to Christ in a historically Christian area. They are working to build relationships with the locals in their city through an unconventional outreach program.
Transforming communities among the unreached by planting biblical churches
Born out of extraordinary prayer, we partner with the global church to mobilize, train, and coach qualified workers in the implementation of the fruitful practices of church planting movements
Shively Area Ministries
Food & Assistance
Shively Area Ministries’ mission is to respond in the Spirit of Christ to persons in poverty and in crisis. We meet these needs by uniting the church, civic and business communities for service in the Shively area.
We accomplish this through a variety of continuing services along with other short-term services to meet the ever changing needs of the Shively area.
