The Matthew 25 Initiative started with a vision from Archbishop Foley Beach and his desire to use a generous grant from an anonymous donor to help churches reach the poor and needy in their communities.

It is working.

Since 2015, the Matthew 25 Initiative has helped to fund 75 new projects and ministries.

M25i continues to be the hope and vision of the Archbishop. It is dependent upon a strong base of donors like we’ve had in the past. Please keep us in your prayers as we wait on the results of the Lent opportunity to give.

Take a look around, get to know some of the ministries in our Province. Is one in your neighborhood? Volunteer! You will be humbled and inspired by the unique ways our brothers and sisters are ministering to those on the margins in the name and love of Christ.

Then dream. Who are your neighbors? How could your church show the love of Christ to those easily forgotten, overlooked, and passed-by? That’s what M25i is here for: to help kick-start those ministries. Pray. Dream. Plan. Apply. We’ll be announcing the next round of applications soon.
