The following components make up Shade’s vision for a place of hope and holistic care.
A School will consist of pre-primary and primary schools for children living in the community and vulnerable children. Teachers will be trained in best practices and will implement innovative strategies. Students will learn required subjects as well as Bible curriculum, while daily engaging in worship and prayer.
Homes For Children will exist to provide safe housing for vulnerable children. They will be overseen by house parents. They will be shown who they are in the kingdom of God: no longer orphans, but dearly-loved sons and daughters of the King. We partner with the Lord’s work to “set the lonely in families” (Psalm 68:6).
Medical Facilities will allow for trained medical staff to care for and house those who are sick or injured. The facility will utilize medical equipment, short and long-term in-patient housing, and reliance on the power of the Great Physician to bring about recovery, healing, and wholeness.
A Resource and Outreach Center will provide opportunities for members of the community to be equipped and empowered to work and serve. The center will house resources, job and skill training, English language learning, pastoral and ministerial training, and micro-enterprise/ business training.
Missionary and Visitor Accommodations will be set apart housing for long-term missionaries and dormitories for short-term missionaries and teams. There will be communal meeting and training facilities to gather for worship and training.
A Prayer Room will be led by a local and missionary pastoral staff. The prayer room will house services, worship, and teaching.
A Well, Agricultural Area, and Solar Power will provide sustainability.
