Operation Inasmuch, Inc.

A Compassion Revolution

aka Operation Inasmuch   |   Knoxville, TN   |  http://operationinasmuch.org/

Mission

Operation Inasmuch is a worldwide ministry that comes alongside churches and pastors to equip and motivate them to obey the biblical mandate to minister to the "least of these." Using the Inasmuch model of compassion ministry, we empower believers to live out their calling to serve others and experience the joy that comes from serving. We encourage pastors who want to see their church connected in their community but don't have the time or training to do it on their own. We show believers how they can create opportunities to share the gospel by doing the gospel.

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Throughout the Bible, God calls on His people to care for the poor, the sick, lame, widows, orphans...the list goes on. The Church is commanded to serve the "least of these" and in Matthew 25:31-40, Jesus even goes so far as to say that when Christians give food to the hungry, drink to the thirsty, take in strangers, clothe the naked, visit the sick, and go the imprisoned...the least of these...they are actually doing it for HIM. Operation Inasmuch is called to invigorate the body of Christ, the Church, to live out the Gospel through daily acts of compassion by loving the unloved, serving the unserved, and reaching out to the unchurched.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Operation Inasmuch teaches and trains churches and believers in models of compassion ministry. These models can be used to serve the community and are adaptable for all congregation sizes across the world.

When a church goes out in Jesus' name and spreads compassion across their community, people take notice. More churches become involved! This leads to more counties working together and even more states. As of the end of 2019, churches from across the world in 5 countries and 25 states (over 2,100 churches total) have been trained to use Operation Inasmuch to serve their communities.

Through our 25 year history, Operation Inasmuch has fine tuned 3 models of ministry that are proven to be successful for any body of believers. Daily, we reach out to and interact with many churches from many denominations around the world that want to make a greater impact for Jesus in their own community. We then seek to train and equip these churches with all of the tools they need to host their very own Inasmuch Day, Inasmuch United, or Inasmuch Life.

Over our 25 year history, there have been over 2,100 churches in 25 states and 5 countries that have used Operation Inasmuch to serve their communities through compassion ministry. We are excited to see what God has in store for the next 25 years!
