Not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.
Programming and community engagement are at the core of what we do. We invest heavily in developing lasting relationships with Millville Pubic Schools, local businesses and churches, community leadership and other organizations within our community. This enables us to connect our families to experiences, resources and opportunities they would otherwise not have. Discover more about our relationships below and get in touch to stay up to date regarding our latest efforts.

Rise and Shine, now under the umbrella of the Millville Housing Authority. This has been an absolute blessing! This allows us housing for our afterschool program, evening programing as well as additional support in the day to day operations. Helping to make Rise and Shine Ministries a stronger presence in the community.

Partnering with the local food pantry has given us the ability to reach further into our community. Working together we are delivering groceries to 600 local families a month. This is a fantastic partnership with endless potential. Can't wait to see what God continues to do!
Community Food Bank of New Jersey
This partnership has been absolutely amazing! Though the CFBNJ we are able to provide a quality hot meal five days a week to the children and youth in our afterschool homework program. Working with a local vender, Wheat Road Cold Cuts in Vineland a hot, healthy, delicious meal is delivered fresh every day. During the summer during our camp season, CFBNJ provides breakfast and lunch to our campers. Making sure no child goes hungry.
