Sharing God’s Goodness, a kingdom-focused giving circle supporting small ministries in the local African American community, launched in November of 2022. In less than a year, it has granted a total of $85,000 to ten area ministries.
Grassroots efforts generated by pastors and lay leaders from African American Churches make a vital difference because the leaders understand the issues in their neighborhoods. The over 60 members of Sharing God’s Goodness value programs that have historically been part of Christian outreach and generosity in the African American community.
