Community and Global Initiatives

Participating in God's mission of blessing the nations in Christ.

Vision

We strongly believe that all members of the body of Christ are sent people, called to proclaim and demonstrate the gospel to the world. Therefore our community and global efforts should never be limited to structured programs. However, in response to the needs in our community, and God’s heart for the nations, we do build global partnerships and facilitate opportunities to participate in God’s mission of blessing the nations in Christ.

Matthew 25

Seeking to follow the commands of Jesus in Matthew 25, Redemption Arcadia wants to give to those in need. We work with the Refugee Women’s Health Clinic, which provides affordable, culturally sensitive healthcare for women in our neighborhood.

If you have feminine care items or baby products such as diapers, you can email Rachel Mendoza at the Refugee Women’s Health Clinic to organize a drop off of these items.

If you have household items you would like to donate to the refugee community, we partner with the Welcome to America Project. You can contact them directly here.

Somali American United Council (SAUC) Partnership

There are an estimated 20,000 Somalis living and working in the Greater Phoenix area. Many of these Somali refugees reside in the Redemption Arcadia neighborhood. The SAUC is a Somali led organization with the desire to see Somalis acclimated to American culture. We partner with African leaders to serve and learn from their community through ESL, fellowship meals, and tutoring.

Our partners like Hope for Children in Ethiopia and Harvest Foundation provide sustainable and holistic care and training. These organizations serve at risk children with the assistance they need to leave a life of forced labor, prostitution, or homelessness.

Loving Muslims in Partnership with Peace Catalyst International

Developing relationships between Muslims and Christians and showing the love of Jesus to our Afghan neighbors.

Muslims and Christians often have skewed perceptions about one another’s religions. This ministry allows us to bring understanding and harmony to broken relationships while keeping Jesus at the center. When connecting with this ministry, you can expect to have great conversation while enjoying delicious Afghan food.
