What we aim to solve

We seek to fill gaps in ministry where there are needs going unmet. ServeNow does this by identifying and partnering with churches and pastors lacking Scripture, Discipleship/Leadership resources and unable on their own to tangibly and practically serve their communities and villages despite the passion and vision to do so.

Charting Impact

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

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have they accomplished so far and what's next?

We aim to accomplish two things. First of all, to equip pastors and churches with God's Word in a way that results in disciples rooted and grounded in the foundational truths of the Christian life. Secondly, we empower these same pastors and churches to reach out and serve their communities according to the need and most effective, strategic way that would open doors and hearts to the Good News. We want to see churches equipped in God's Word, disciples made through resources in their language, women at risk of human trafficking provided a skill and ability to generate their own income, orphan or underprivileged children able to receive an education and care, people in need of clean water, medical care, winter coverings, mosquito nets, humanitarian relief or other aid served in those ways. We are aiming to holistically serve people most in need and to do so where the need is greatest while partnering with local churches around the world. We want to make the God given dreams and vision of others a reality!

Our strategy is partnering with local churches and pastors to accomplish this mission. In every country of operation we hire National leaders and staff to work with the indigenous people being served in their countries. They know the language and culture and thus it makes the work more effective and cost efficient. They also already possess a vision, calling and passion. They just lack the resources or training needed. So rather than dictate to them what we think best, we come alongside them and listen to what they know would work best. We are not seeking to be "hero's" but come in the humility of a "helper" alongside of as equal partners.

Through our experienced and trained network of staff and leaders and boards in countries of operation we are capable of meeting goals...as funding allows. With our network of supporters and relationships in the US we work to generate the resources and interest needed to fund the projects and work around the world. Our founder has over 50 years of Global Ministry and Leadership experience and our President served as a pastor and gained experience in international missions prior to leading the organization forward.

We have weekly, monthly, quarterly and yearly reports that are submitted by all our leaders in every country. In each of their countries there exists an accountability and reporting process with every partnering pastor and church. Each year, specific ministry goals and budgets are worked on between our leaders, boards and President. We know through the testimonies and reports the impact the organization is having in people's lives as we witness the transformation.

In just our first few years of existence, over three million people have been served in some specific and direct way. We have been partnering with a network of over 1,500 churches that are being equipped with God's Word and a series of Discipleship resources. ServeNow has trained a hundreds of women in six-month skill training courses. Seven school buildings have been built in Uganda for orphan/impoverished children in five years. Nearly 70 children have monthly sponsors. A handful of "Lighthouse Centers" are operating on a weekly basis for hundreds of orphan or disadvantaged slum children to provide education, a warm meal, tutoring and God's love. Thousands of physical aid have been given to people in need. A couple hundred children and teens attend summer camps in Ukraine each year. What's next for ServeNow is growing our impact in the countries already operating in and hopefully expanding to new countries. We hope to provide more leadership training for pastors and leaders as they are requesting, and more material for churches hungry for God's Word.
