We believe that through passionate acts of love and generosity, we can make Heaven’s love known and felt in our world. We believe that as we all gather together with a heart of sacrifice, we can right wrongs, bring light into darkness, and heal the hurting. When God wants to change the world, He uses ordinary people to do extraordinary things. Our prayer is that the love and generosity that Jesus has shown us would overflow out of our lives onto the world around us- bringing change and hope. Amplify partners with some incredible organizations to help make a difference in peoples lives.
Each month, over 300 children in Mukono, Uganda are personally sponsored by Amplify families and individuals. In 2011, we began collectively investing in projects in their community that resource our sponsored children to be able to provide for their families long-term.
In addition to Mukono Deliverance Church, this year we will be fully funding a second Child Development Center in North Uganda. This will give 50+ children in the local community an opportunity to be sponsored by our own Amplify Church family. Sponsorship for children provides them with food, medical care, schooling, mentorship, and an opportunity to hear the gospel!
Since 2013, the Amplify Community has been partnering with Greater Works Outreach to sponsor 16 young girls in Port-au-Price, Haiti. With so many families being unable to care for their children in this severely impoverished country, your support ensures that these girls’ physical, emotional and spiritual needs are met.
Through close personal relationship, the Amplify Community has been able to resource and equip the building of our sister church in Germany. This year, we will expand our support as well as partner with John Maxwell’s EQUIP Leadership, Inc. to fund and lead training programs for leaders in Germany.
Founded and led by a former Amplify member, this organization has planted 3 churches in India with another in the works this year. Over the past 20 years, we have been on the ground in India, developing leaders and establishing churches through the support of the Amplify Community.
In response to great need, Amplify Church has committed to send a team of dedicated volunteers to an impoverished community in Appalachia to rebuild and repair their roofs. Our goal is to provide families with one of life’s core, basic needs – a mended home. A week of serving, connecting, and learning will truly change the lives of those in Appalachia and those privileged to commit to this trip.
Many families lack necessary household items due to a lack of resources. Through the Blessing Board, families are able to receive recycled furniture and household items at no charge. Built on a commitment to loving our neighbors and improving their quality of life by providing the furniture and household goods that they need free of charge, thousands of families have been helped.
Over 1,700 young people in under-resourced urban neighborhoods engage in academic, athletic and art programs which help equip them for success in school, family and life. Youths who enter UI programs are taught life skills as well as introduced to mentors who walk alongside them through life’s challenges. Through receiving options and hope for their futures, these youth are equipped to become productive members of the community and have a positive, lasting impression on society.
