LIFT - rising above, moving beyond
We believe the Lord desires us to be good stewards of the resources he provides, which is why we want to fund more missions and local ministries while we reduce debt and move toward being debt free. The elders have spent over a year in prayer and discussion to evaluate how E91 can be spiritually healthy and growing for years to come. We pray God will bless E91 as we humble ourselves before him, stretch our faith, and LIFT together.

We will help plant a new church in the US (E91 daughter church #74, location to be determined), and we will launch a Christ-centered vocational training program and build safe houses for our partners at Rapha House in Thailand.
