Heartbeat Ministry


The mission of Heartbeat is to glorify God by developing a church culture that reflects God’s heart for the fatherless, supports families who care for orphans, and advocates for children in need.


  • Educate — We desire to educate the church in regard to God's heart for the fatherless and the global state of orphaned and vulnerable children.
  • Empower — We desire to empower the church to fulfill the commission to the fatherless (Isaiah 1:17).
  • Embrace — We desire to encourage the church to enthusiastically embrace a culture that cares for vulnerable children.
