  2. Volunteer for 2 hours at the Dallas warehouse. 
  3. Give directly online. 

There is an increased need during the summer due to schools being out.

The Gatehouse Program empowers women and children overcoming crisis to become permanently self-sustainable.

They give a hand up so families achieve the dignity of earned success through a career-based income, financial stability, and the skills to manage their emotional, spiritual and physical health. Their evidence-based curriculum provides accountability and resources based on the individual’s needs and goals. While Members are enrolled at The Gatehouse, they are loved and guided through the Program by a team of experts and live on our 61-acre, privately funded and debt-free campus.

They are not a shelter or short-term solution but serve those who have the attitude and ability to work for permanent change. They fill that gap in our community between short-term services and permanent self-sustainability.

Serve around the World

LAUNCHING CHRIST-CENTERED MULTIPLIERS into their spheres of influence.

Learn more about how you can get involved at Ministry Catalysts by contacting ron.ministrycatalysts@gmail.com.

Our airplanes are the only way many people living in remote jungles, deserts, and mountains can experience the love of Jesus. You can help us—and the hundreds of churches, missionaries, and organizations we serve—bring the gospel, medical care, education, community development, disaster relief, and more to isolated people.
 

From Dave Roever:

My work with the military is not born out of schools of higher education, nor reading books of other people’s experience, but out of the tragedy of my own experiences. Having the opportunity to assist our young men and women, who are putting their lives on the line for our freedom, is one of the highest callings in my life.

Pray

This is where the battle is fought and won in the spiritual realm. Nothing of lasting value would happen in and through us without the power of God, and God works through the prayers of His people. When we pray, we participate and cooperate with God in all He is doing around the corner and around the world. If you don’t know how to pray, don’t worry...

Jesus gave us a great model:
Our Father in heaven, holy is your name.
Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors.
Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever! Amen.


Another way to think of this is the ACTS prayer:
Adoration—tell God how great he is
Confession—agree with God about our sin
Thanksgiving—thank God for what he has done
Supplication—ask God to supply our needs

Give

Although missions and ministry can’t happen without funding, giving is more about the heart of the giver than the projects they fund. By giving, we say to God “Thank you, I trust you, I honor you.”

Thank You
Christ followers give out of celebration rather than obligation—because they want to, not because they have to.

I Trust You
Giving reminds us that God is in control and that we gladly lay down every part of our lives to Him as Lord. It shows that we know that He is God and we are not.
I Honor You

Giving exalts God as the giver of all good things as we give back to him a portion of his bountiful provision.

Go

This option is not limited to vocational missionaries to other nations, although it does include them.

At ACF, we partner with ministries and missions both local and global to bring the good news of Jesus Christ to our neighbors around the corner and around the world.
