Actively Visiting Orphans, Widows, Elderly and Disabled
"This is pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father, to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world." (James 1:27, NASB)
What Does AVOWED Do?
Commonly known as the "Nursing Home Ministry". However, we are much more than that. We are also:
Church Planter: as we establish regular worship services in care centers and provide many forms of spiritual care;
Street Evangelist: as we explain the Gospel to the unreached among the corridors, halls, rooms, and outside courtyards of care centers;
Hospice Chaplain: as we hold hands of the dying, as we sing songs, read Scripture, pray and tell them they are loved. Listen and comfort widows, the grieving and lend a shoulder to weep on;
Encourage, Equip and Facilitate others to engage in similar compassionate activity.
Our mission: To actively visit the lonely and forgotten, ministering to their emotional and spiritual needs, and to encourage, equip and facilitate others to engage in this compassionate activity.
