Vision to be the Circuit Riders of the 21st Century
In the early years of the United States, clergy were assigned to travel around specific geographic territories to minister to settlers and to organize worship. They were referred to as "Circuit Riders". They carried at least one Bible and one hymn book in their saddle bags, which is why they were also sometimes called "Saddlebag Preachers".
In a similar fashion, we travel to care centers and individuals in specific geographic areas to visit those without the luxury or freedom to go to a worship service or participate in other activities and friendships as they wish. We, as AVOWED Christians, have the strong conviction to boldly call the lonely, and sometimes forgotten, friends and adopted family. We wish to share spiritual fellowship, as well.
The long-term goal for AVOWED is to include ministry to orphans, following the scriptures in the Bible that speak of the fatherless. The first phase, however, is to address the more neglected demographics within the United States, which are the widows, elderly and disabled.
AVOWED provides all ministries free of charge to those in need. The ability to do so, however, does take a financial commitment, and therefore donations are welcomed.
