How does it work?

We invite you to send a vision team to see the work of MOHI firsthand. During your trip, you’ll see this ministry in action and learn how your church can partner in in one slum community.

Your community partnership includes the following opportunities:

  • Child Sponsorship
  • Send short-term teams to help with ministries such as leadership development, construction, medical, business consultation, agricultural work, and teaching.
  • Give to special projects or provide monthly support for your partner community.
  • Monthly community partnership funds are invested in the following areas:
  • Training, 25 percent: Community Health Evangelism (CHE), HIV/AIDS, nutrition, microfinance
  • Staff, 25 percent: CHE trainers, Big Dent loan officers, HIV/AIDS caregivers
  • Church planting, 15 percent: pastoral training, small stipends for pastors, outreach, equipment
  • Equipment and facility operations, 15 percent
  • Development projects, income-generating activities, small farms, 10 percent
  • Initial rent and property acquisition (i.e. legal fees), 10 percent

Special project funds are needed in these areas:

  • Community development projects ($10,000-$20,000)
  • Purchase land for a MOHI community center ($20,000-$50,000)
  • Contribute toward the construction of a community center ($200,000-$800,000)
  • Help a woman or man start a business to provide for his or her family. Learn more about our microfinance program at BigDent.org.
