WHO WE ARE
We, followers of Christ, are to love unconditionally, unselfishly, and unlimitedly, in order to bring others ONE step closer to the LORD. We do this by three pillars of ministry……faith, hope and love.
Faith- sends teams across the Nations to share Christ’s love.
Hope- empowers others for a better future through education,
transition homes and self sustainability.
Love- teaches by modeling godly relationships, discipleship training,
resources to keep families united, in addition to bring clean water,
health care, and health education.
Through these three pillars of ministry, our desire is to impact the nations for HIS kingdom!
HOW WE GOT STARTED...
Charlie and Kinsley Smith
In December of 2014, Charlie and Kinsley decided it was time to stop running from God's calling on their life and started Agape to the Nations.
THE WORK WE DO
WHY SEND SHORT TERM MISSION TRIPS...
At Agape to the Nations, we believe that long term connections often begin on short term mission trips! While our organization sends multiple short term trips each year, these trips serve communities with whom we have developed strong relationships. We serve the nations through partnerships with carefully selected organizations and individuals currently on the ground living and working amongst the people they serve.

WHY TRANSITIONAL HOMES...
When a teen ages out of care after spending much of their life in an institution, they are seldom prepared to successfully navigate the challenges of independent adult life. By assisting our teens in this time of transition, Agape to the Nations seeks to launch them into adult life fully equipped for success. We help them finish school, learn life skills and trade skills, and share the gospel with them. We help them understand discipleship and how to make disciples.
WHY INVEST IN RELATIONSHIP BUILDING...
We believe God created people for relationship, both with Him and the rest of creation. Our teens are invested in individually as we seek to assist them in creating a plan for their future. Additionally, they are encouraged to develop a strong personal relationship with the Lord, discipleship training, and their local community. Our teens are active in the church and also help others in our community.
Agape to the Nations is privileged to partner with amazing organizations, business, and individuals. We believe these partnerships help us expand our outreach to many more people than if we were doing it by ourselves.
