BEYOND THE BACKYARD IS AT THE HEART OF WHO WE ARE AS A CHURCH FAMILY. GOD LOVES THE ABANDONED, THE UNWANTED, AND THE DISCARDED AND IT IS OUR PASSION TO SEE THEM RESCUED, TRAINED, AND FLOURISHING IN LIFE. THIS IS OUR PASSION BECAUSE THIS IS THE PASSION OF JESUS.
He said in Luke 4:18, "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor."
Beyond the Backyard is impacting the world through church planting, leadership training for leaders and pastors, orphan rescue, and justice for victims of sex trafficking.
Our goal for 2016 is to raise $75,000 so that we can effectively support 8 different key ministries around the world. Each one is highly effective and a leader in their area of influence.
