ADios Ministries was born out of the understanding that humanity is called to care for those who are less fortunate. Over the years, ADios Ministries has also grown to understand that all sectors of humanity need each other to reach our individual and collective potential.
We have all seen, be it on TV or in person, the suffering caused by extreme poverty. The knowledge that hunger, disease and hopelessness plague the majority of the world’s population, and that similar issues exist in pockets here in the United States, raises one very interesting question for our lives, what is our responsibility to the less fortunate? We don’t have to look far to find the answer.
“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the law?”
Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” Mt 22:36-39.
We believe that the knowledge that people around us and around the world are suffering, coupled with the command to love one another is an intrinsic call to action. Our goal is to assist in the alleviation of the pain of economic, emotional and spiritual poverty by partnering, mentoring and bridging the gap between those in need with those with means.
We understand the differences between relief, rehabilitation and development efforts. We subscribe to asset-based-community-development principles that both equip and empower those serving and those being served – for the good of us all and the Glory of God.
