HCI is a help-meet* organization that comes alongside churches and families to equip them to reach, teach, rescue and restore the next generation. HCI supports their efforts to love and disciple by providing quality training, resources, written materials and encouragement.
*Help meet: (‘azer) One who aids, helps, from the root word (‘azar) supports, surrounds, girds and defends. Genesis 2:18
We do PROJECTS.
HCI selects one project each year at one of our international bases of operation to further a local ministry doing exceptional humanitarian work there. In 2017 we built a school in an impoverished neighborhood and helped a widow become self-sustaining. In 2019, we partnered with a church in Sesser, Illinois to build a brand new playground for the children at a feeding program in Guatemala! We also purchased Bibles for a church in Garden Hill, Manitoba, purchased a lap-top and other items needed for our HCI Africa team to continue their training in Nigeria and more!
HCI’s 1st Project for 2020: We need a new printer and projector for HCI Africa to keep up with the rapidly growing ministry of HCI there! Thousands of children were impacted by The Word Club last year and new areas of Africa are opening up for our children’s ministry training and more. (Approximate cost: $1,000) We will also be working with Hope Street Center in Uganda to find a permanent location for their ministry to the Street Boys. More info to come!
- Make A Difference: Your $25 per month or one-time donation to our ChildFeed Fund helps to feed and provide medical care for street boys at our partner ministry in Uganda, Hope Street. It is also used as an emergency fund to assist children in our sponsorship program or partner ministries.
- Child Sponsorship continues to support education for children in impoverished areas of Nigeria, Uganda, and Haiti. $35 per month provides school tuition, school supplies and a lunch for a child in need. Learn more about HCI’s Child Sponsorship Program →.
We provide PATTERNS.
HCI is constantly developing new discipleship and personal ministry methods, materials and resources that can be easily taught and reproduced by adults working with children here at home or on foreign soil. We believe the best way to help children is to equip the adults in their lives with knowledge and tools needed to raise, restore and transform them. We can’t protect children from life — but we CAN prepare them for it! The patterns offered through our discipleship departments can be used by parents, pastors, counselors, teachers or missionaries to create new programs for youth or children in their country. We believe God’s Word is STILL the answer to every need, every question. Over 70 nations have received training and/or materials through HCI over the past 25 years!
