6410-908-The New Church in Torcy, France

This project will permit the growing and dynamic new church plant in Torcy, France, to buy and adapt a 260M2 (2,800 sq. ft.) building that would allow it to continue to grow and expand its ministry in the city. They have outgrown their current facilities and, as a result, their ministry impact is being lessened. PROBLEM The New Torcy Church is a growing dynamic young church plant. That is the good news! Today, though, our challenge is that we've outgrown our worship space. Our 860 sq. ft. is just too small for our congregation of 85. As a result we…

At the most basic level, Albania lacks the social services infrastructure necessary to house and care for girls rescued from abuse.

So, in 2004 we opened the Kenedi Safe Home for Girls. Girls who were once sexually abused, beaten and severely neglected are now loved, growing and thriving. They are surrounded by people who want the best for them and who would never hurt them. They are safe. PROBLEM In Albania, national…

6431-905-The Parchment Project

WHAT IS THE PARCHMENT PROJECT? The Parchment Project (TPP) introduced its unique 2-page layout to WorldVenture in 2014. The panoramic view of the text enhances personal engagement with the Scriptures. As a result, reading entire letters on 2 facing pages becomes inviting, rather than overwhelming. The ten longer books of the New Testament benefit from the same layout. Consequently, readers work through these lengthy books in bite-size pieces because their major sections fit on 2-pages or less. In the blink of an eye, readers analyze parts and synthesize the whole with greater agility. • TPP's New Testament Study Bible features:…
