Warehouse in the World

In our globalized world, it is critical for us to pursue justice around the world as well as in our neighborhoods. As we engage and serve our global neighbors, we believe in doing so by forging long-term partnerships in which we can work together to bring the whole gospel to whole people and their whole community. Like our local service initiatives, our global service is oriented toward rehabilitation and sustainable development rather than period relief. This way of investing in our neighbors is an integral part of our own spiritual formation process.

There certainly is a time for relief, however, and particularly when an international crisis occurs, we trust the on-the-ground disaster relief experts with Samaritan’s Purse. We encourage financial investment in their work, so that they can provide quick, effective, and compassionate relief to global neighbors.

Dominican Republic Medical & Construction Trips

We partner with By Grace Alone Ministries as they continue the long-term development of the Fuente de Vida project near Santo Domingo. This involves strengthening the capacity of local leaders to bring urgent medical assistance, educational development, small business startups, and pastor training opportunities to materially poor neighbors. Through short-term listening trips, Warehouse 242 has the opportunity to experience the project firsthand and experience global development while learning with and from local Dominican leaders who know the communities best.
