Uniting people to restore communities
Community 4:12 unites people to restore communities by mobilizing Christ-followers to be agents of compassion, justice, and love. They fulfill that mission through long-term commitments to communities with a focus on meeting immediate needs, building relationships, developing people, and addressing systemic issues that contribute to poverty and inequity.
Since 2003, Giftmart has partnered with businesses and faith-based organizations to collect more than 100,000 new toys. In an effort to preserve dignity, parents from Giftmart’s partner schools have been able to choose gifts for their children at a discounted price of $2 per toy. The money is then given back to the schools, resulting in the purchase of library books, computers, musical instruments, and other supplies.

Community Freedom equips the local church to transition returning citizens from confinement to freedom through the planting of church locations in prisons. Through the collaborative effort of COMMUNITY, NewThing, and Alpha there is a unique opportunity to not only start hundreds of churches in prisons but also offer exceptional training and resources to local churches all over the U.S. for successful re-entry.
