CRAM Worldwide, INC

Our Mission

To take the love of Jesus Christ to the people of Asia. By meeting their physical needs we gain the opportunity to meet their spiritual needs.

Be a Voice for the Oppressed

  • Every dollar amount big or small has an impact on the many lives living in poverty.
  • It only cost $25 for a 44 lb bag of rice. This one bag of rice will feed a family of three for one month.
  • Hunger is something people face daily. Many of them do not know when their next meal will be. Many people of Asia struggle with the fear of having no food to feed their family or themselves.
  • Be a voice. Talk about heavy subjects. It takes loving, caring people to spread the word and advocate for the lost, the poor, the broken, the hungry.
  • One bag of rice a month for a family of three cost less than one visit to a sit-down restaurant for a family of three in America.

International Disaster Emergency Service (I.D.E.S.)

OUR MISSION

“IDES exists to meet physical and spiritual needs of suffering people throughout the world in the name of Jesus Christ.”
 

OUR CORE VALUES

Core Values Graphics.jpg
  • COMPASSION

We are to show others the love God has shown us through His Son, Jesus Christ. (Luke 6:36; 1 John 3:16-18)

  • GENEROSITY

Our gratitude for God’s grace motivates us to give to others. (James 2:15-17; Proverbs 3:27, 28)

  • EVANGELISM

We are “beggars telling other beggars where to find food.”  By giving physical bread we seek to earn the right to share “The Bread of Life” with the hungry. (Matt. 28:19,20; Acts 2:38; Colossians 1:28,29)

  • INTEGRITY

We must be good examples of what we teach.  We are to be faithful and trustworthy stewards.  We are to live above reproach. (2 Cor. 8:19-21; 1 Thes. 5:23, 24; 1 Tim. 3:2)

  • DEPENDENCE ON GOD

We are dependent on God for wisdom and guidance every day.  We are to pray about everything.  We will trust God to provide for our needs and we will seek first His kingdom.(John 15:5; Phil. 4:6, 7, 19; Matt. 6:33)

  • PARTNERSHIP

We believe that God works through His church to accomplish His purpose.  We believe God has gifted His people to do ministry in His name. (Eph. 4:11-16; 1 Cor. 12)

  • GLORIFY GOD
“Whatever you eat or drink or whatever you do, you must do all for the glory of God.”(1 Cor. 10:31; Matt. 5:16)

Hearten House Gospel Rescue Mission

HOMELESSNESS IS REAL IN DEKALB COUNTY

Because homeless individuals are not visible on every street corner, we may be deceived into believing it is not a problem in our town. But there are hundreds of individuals who live in dangerous housing situations, sleep on other’s couches temporarily, or share housing with other families in crowded and stressed conditions. Experts estimate as many as 2,500 men, women and children living in DeKalb County are dangerously near or experiencing homelessness. Housing insecurity creates a host of problems and a cycle of poverty that is very difficult to break free from.
​Families are often torn apart, and the fabric of the community is weakened.

​HEARTEN HOUSE IS HOPE

Hearten House Gospel Rescue Mission is a shelter providing restorative care for women experiencing a homeless crisis.
Some women are fleeing domestic abuse; others are pregnant with no support network; many just need a safe place to stay and encouragement as they rebuild their lives.​Using proven strategies, Hearten House staff and trained volunteers will walk alongside women who are ready to overcome  trauma, addictions, and destructive habits, on their way to self-sufficiency.

Together, we can help women find hope, healing, and the love of Christ.

A facility for Hearten House was purchased in 2017 and is now OPEN!
Your prayers and financial contributions to this ministry are vital. 
Please consider supporting the Hearten House in 2021.

As a family, we desire to seek more of God’s heart for his people, and embrace that in the way we live our lives. Our Rep Group, who we hope you will take the time to learn more about, have come up with a vision called “After God’s Own Heart” It’s all about learning more about what matters to God, making those things matter to us, and living them out as we love each other and the world around us. So we hope you will join us as part of this big family and get involved here at the Christian Campus House at Trine University.

On our Connect page, you can find a number of different opportunities to get plugged in and begin growing in your faith.
