The Ministry of Christian Compassion

Compassion… what does that bring to mind? Inner city homeless? Starving children?

A neighbor in need? Those in remote lands? If you said all of these, you’re exactly right. Compassion is taking who you are and meeting people where they are, as they are. For Christians, it is more than just helping others; it is helping others in the name of Jesus.

The Ministry of Compassion is…

  • Seeing - You see great suffering plague the innocent through natural disasters, famine, war, poverty or personal trials.
  • Feeling - You begin to feel something—pity, sympathy, anger or helplessness. You need to go beyond seeing, beyond just feeling, and move into…
  • Acting - You know you have to act, despite all your fears and excuses. What you need is a place to begin; resources to help you live out your faith in Christ. The Ministry of Christian Compassion reaches out to the Richmond community and the world through more than 40 ministries that enrich the lives of those served and those serving.

How we connect
