Currently Lifepointe has a number of ministries that we are actively sponsoring through prayer, volunteer support, and financial sponsorship. We invite you to visit the provided links below and learn more about where at least 10% of our general offerings go. These ministries include efforts such as church planting, Christian camping, and medical missionaries.
CURRENT SUPPORTED MISSIONS
Mid-Atlantic Christian University
MACU's mission is to impact the world by transforming ordinary people into extraordinary Christian leaders. Established in 1948 as a response to several local ministers in eastern North Carolina and southeast Virginia, MACU is proud to provided a superior Christian education to thousands of alumni who continue to serve all over the United States and the World.
Christ's Church at Virginia Tech
We believe the college campus is a huge mission field, This campus ministry at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, VA focuses on reaching the college students by giving them a place where they can establish and grow their faith throughout their collegiate experience. The mission of CCVT is to LOVE God and love others, LEAD students in the grace and love of Jesus, and to raise up kingdom workers who LEAD on campus and throughout the world.
The Saldi Family
Greg and Nicole Saldi are graduates of Mid-Atlantic University and have been missionaries in France for 10 years along with their daughter Ophelia. They have been working with the help of Kontataktmission, a multinational organization that helps missionaries establish churches in Europe. Kontataktmission is a “support group” for missionaries to encourage networking, and bringing teams together for learning how to do “church” in cultures where few people have a relationship with Jesus Christ.
The Norman Family
In the summer of 2012, LifePointe began partnering with the Norman family, missionaries to Cambodia. They serve with the mission organization Team Expansion to bring the gospel message to the people of Cambodia through medicine. Alan and Judy Norman are both physicians and have also partnered with the Mercy Medical Clinic to care for the sick and injured. Alan and Judy have four children; Hannah, Rachel, Maria & Thomas.
Waypoint Church Partners
Waypoint Church partners is the fusion of two-like minded organizations, the Virginia Evangelizing Fellowship (which helped plant LifePointe in 2006) and Envision Church Planting (a similar group from North Carolina). Together, Waypoint helps church leaders navigate the challenge of ministry by providing low-to-no cost services and support for an enormous variety of needs. Waypoint Church Partners is all about serving the local church.
Through YUGO Ministries, LifePointe has sponsored multiple teams over the past few years to build homes for families in Ensenada, Mexico. By partnering with this non-profit organization, we seek to love, serve, and bring the message of Jesus to those in need throughout Ensanada.
The Tedeschi Family
Chris and Sonia Tedeschi, and their sons, are serving with Christar, participating by planting churches in the least-reached communities around the world, where God is yet to be worshiped. Christar is committed to creatively and effectively establishing churches that are rooted in the Word of God and upheld with prayer. As the body of Christ goes to these communities that are still without access to the good news, seeds of the gospel are planted and nurtured. New believers are discipled and trained until mature. And indigenous churches grow to represent Christ and His transforming work in and around these communities.
Early in 2016, LifePointe began partnering with Disciple Makers in the 10/40 window - an area of the world between 10 degrees and 40 degrees north of the equator filled with great poverty, low quality of life and a lack of access to Christian resources. Their goal is to help plant vibrant, indigenous churches throughout these least reached portions of the world so that all people groups & nations have the opportunity of hearing the Gospel and knowing the person of Jesus Christ.
The Team Expansion family currently consists of more than 350 full-time adult workers serving in 46 countries in 70 distinct church planting projects. So far God has used their efforts to plant over 600 churches, with over 15,000 individuals baptized into Christ! LifePointe supports a missionary working within this organization who currently works to build relationships and share the gospel with a sensitive population of refugees here in the United States.
Serving as a Christian camp and retreat center in Yale, Virginia, Camp Rudolph has opened its doors to campers of all ages since 1975. Over the years, LifePointe has supported the camp in a variety of ways - from sending students to summer camp to helping with scholarship programs to providing volunteer project assistance to using the camp for various retreats.
