At Aletheia Church we partner with and support what God is doing locally and globally through various organizations and individuals who have been called to share the love and hope of Christ in specific contexts. Below is a list of the organizations and individuals that we financially and prayerfully support.
Local mission support
Contact Chiedo John to learn how to engage.
AVA Care of Harrisonburg is a medical non-profit serving women facing unintended pregnancy since 1984.
Dan is currently serving with Cru as a Full-time Senior Staff member at James Madison University and as Catalytic Movement Leader at Bridgewater College.
"I have the privilege of ministering to men and women from all over the country (and the world!). We are asking and trusting God to win the lost for Christ, build students up in their faith, and send them out as laborers for the Gospel wherever they will go."
"Thank you so much partnering with me in my ministry. It is only because of your faithful support that I am able to serve in this capacity. Please, feel free to contact me about anything."
The mission of Mercy House is to provide food, clothes, and shelter to homeless families with dependent children in the Harrisonburg, Virginia area in a safe community while providing services to help overcome the barriers leading to homelessness.
New Creation is a Harrisonburg, VA based non-profit counteracting human trafficking through education, awareness, design, & the hope of Christ
Village to Village is a Christian non profit organization that partners with Church World Services to set up homes for new-to-our-country refugee families by partnering with the community to gather donations and with volunteers to set up homes. Members from Aletheia help in this capacity. Village to Village also helps communities around the world to become self sufficient via clean water filtration systems, trauma care training, libraries and more. As a Christian organization they are not always able to communicate our relationship with Christ but prayers are always prayed over the homes during set up, through programming internationally, and whatever doors God opens to the ministry
Global Mission Support
Compassion International advocates for children. Their mission is to release children from poverty in Jesus’ name. Aletheia church members sponsor children around the globe through Compassion International, which provides children with food, medical care and Christ-centered education. In addition, Aletheia has a special partnership with Compassion in Santa Marta, Colombia – many individuals from our church sponsor children in this city, and we regularly send groups there for short-term mission trips during which sponsors can meet their sponsored children and volunteer at the center.
Francesco & Claudia Arco (Acts 29 Italy / Avant Ministries)
Francesco and Claudia Arco are national missionaries in Italy. They work with Avant Ministries and Acts 29 (known as “Impatto” in Italy). They are currently heading up two church plants. Much of their work centers around discipleship, pastoral care and evangelism. They founded a local non-profit called “Mani del Maestro” (Hands of the Master) that is a tool in reaching out to the many needy people in their area of Genoa, a city of about 600,000. They also minister to victims of human-trafficking. If you are interested in signing up to receive their newsletter personally, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Missionaries, Middle East
Aletheia Church supports a married couple living in the Middle East who work with refugees fleeing persecution, war and poverty. They are part of a team that addresses refugees’ physical and spiritual needs by providing things such as food and clothing, as well as English classes. Their desire is to minister to families in transition and share with them the good news of Christ.
