“Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.” – 2 Corinthians 9:7-8

Live Global Christmas Guide
As you prepare to celebrate God’s Gift to the world, we invite you to prayerfully consider the Live Global Giving Guide for Christmas 2021. This wide range of gifts at all price points supports indigenous ministry leaders across the globe. Gifts include life-changing options from Bible for new believers in Nepal, to health and vitamin packs for families, and equipment for new church plants. These global gifts bring, “good news of great joy that will be for all people.” (Luke 2:10)
Immanuel Church supports ministry partners with Live Global. Live Global cultivates relationships with national leaders impacting their own cultures and communities for Christ. Our ministry partners support national ministries in leadership development, training & mentoring.
