Back2Back Ministries (Ends of the Earth)

26 Days until REACH 2015! Check out today’s featured mission agency, Back2Back Ministries (Ends of the Earth – International communities and people).

Back2Back Ministries is an international Christian non-profit organization that is dedicated to being a voice for back2back-logo-color-jpeg.jpg orphans. We desire for every orphan and vulnerable child to have the opportunity for success through care for today and hope for tomorrow. Our goal is for each child to experience restoration to a life of purpose in which they can become fulfilled and mature Christian adults.

Since 1997, Back2Back has been impacting the lives of orphans and vulnerable children around the world. Through our 5-Point Child Development Plan, we strive to provide holistic care to each child that they might overcome their life circumstances and break free from the cycle of generational poverty.

Spiritual: helping each child understand the love and protection of their heavenly Father.
Physical: improving the quality of care for children by helping to meet basic needs, such as regular medical and dental care, nutritious meals, warm clothing, clean water and safe shelter.
Educational: assisting with tuition fees, tutoring children who are struggling academically, and even offering full college scholarships to children who participate in Back2Back’s Hope Program.
Emotional: living alongside the children to gain their trust and begin a dialogue of recovery. We address issues, such as anxiety, depression and attachment disorders, by offering opportunities for children to seek healing through counseling.
Social: offering training in vital life skills, such as conflict resolution, family values, stewardship, work ethic, independent living skills and interpersonal communication.

Today, Back2Back provides care for today and hope for tomorrow to orphans and vulnerable children in Mexico, Nigeria, India and Haiti.  The care for today is accomplished in part through you, our ministry teams and partners, who visit year round on mission trips and help provide care through child sponsorship. Our staff stand back to back with the directors and national staff that serve daily in the children’s homes. We come alongside with physical, financial and human resources, encouragement, prayer, and training.  We model Paul’s teaching “that we are delighted to share not only the gospel, but our lives as well.”
