Giving Opportunity!

Any donation you make directly assists us in our mission to help those in need by sharing God's love in a practical 'hands on and hearts full' manner. Feel free to contact us if you have a specific project you want to invest in.


The donation you are making is going to be made through our partner R U Red E ? Ministries. Please make sure you select "Nelson Ministry" from the drop down list to ensure your donation reaches us. We recognize that resources invested into our lives and those we reach are a gift, not a given, so thank you for your kindness and sacrifice.

"Yes, God will give you much so that you can give away much, and when we take your gifts to those who need them they will break out into thanksgiving and praise to God for your help. 12 So two good things happen as a result of your gifts—those in need are helped, and they overflow with thanks to God."
2 Corinthians 9:11.12
