Communication

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The RED Perspective is a nonprofit faith community promoting RELATIONSHIP, ENCOURAGEMENT, AND DEVELOPMENT. This is done through Bible study, education scholarships, mentoring, speaker training, conversation and support, leadership team building, and relationship. We have built an online presence and utilize that presence to engage individuals who are struggling to connect with a home church, as well as find creative ways for men and women to strengthen their spiritual lives.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Ruth Scholarship

This scholarship opportunity is available for young women ages 17-25. The ideal candidate for this scholarship is a woman who has overcome adversity to educate herself and make a lasting impact on the world. Our goal is to offer the Ruth Scholarship at $1,000 annually.

Population(s) Served
Women and girls
Students

The Naomi Scholarship opportunity is available for women over 40 who desire to return to school, or begin their higher education. The ideal candidate for this scholarship has been active in mentoring younger individuals, or has had a similar type of impact on her community.

Population(s) Served
Women and girls

The DAVID SCHOLARSHIP is designed to be awarded for men ages 16-25, who have overcome adversity whether it be by conquering difficult life settings or finding themselves in a situation not unlike the young boy who would be king. Several books of the Old Testament unfold the story of David, the shepherd who picked up five smooth stones to slay a giant. Later, as jealousy and scandal surrounded him, David found himself on the run. But it was here that God shaped him into a man after His own heart. David authored a great number of the words we read today in the Psalms, the songbook of the Bible. As his legacy carried on, his direct lineage leads to the birth of the Messiah, carving a permanent place in history for a young boy who came in from the field simply because his father called him, not knowing what lay ahead.

The ideal candidate for the David Scholarship will be able to articulate how his own life models the poignant story of a warrior heart, sobering humility, and the courage to face his enemies and how he will use the experience to make a lasting contribution to the world around him. While it is not a pre-requisite, any student seeking education in music or the arts will receive special consideration for the David scholarship.

Charting impact

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

The RED Perspective is a nonprofit faith community promoting RELATIONSHIP, ENCOURAGEMENT, and DEVELOPMENT by creating opportunities for individuals to know God; inspiring their hearts by nourishing them with His Word; and investing in their futures through artistic and educational resources.

The RED Perspective promotes:

1 - Relationship - Especially the Most Important One...with God!
2 - Encouragement - Nourishing Hearts with God's Word and Inspiring Them with Resources.
3 - Development - Providing Art of Prayer Workshops, Offering Educational Scholarships.

All of our income is generated through donations and contributions. We have a team of committed volunteers who works to encourage tax-deductible giving to our organization so that we can give back to the world through our programs and scholarships.

In 2017, we published our first Art of Prayer take-home resource, and fine-tuned our Art of Prayer workshop. We also awarded two $1,000 scholarships to women who were enrolled in universities.

In 2018, our goal is to publish our second Art of Prayer take-home resource, bring the Art of Prayer workshop to more local groups, and to again award the two $1,000 education scholarships. We are nearing these goals, and expect to have them fully-accomplished by fall of the current year.

In 2019, we began working to add a third educational scholarship geared toward young men. We realized this goal in 2020 when we awarded our first David Scholarship to a young man pursuing a special education degree at a New Jersey college.
