Love Never Fails seeks to decrease the spread of HIV/AIDS and free women from a life of prostitution. The staff cares for the daily physical needs of men and women living with AIDS, encourages HIV testing, provides AIDS awareness programs, and leads training to de-stigmatize the disease. In addition, the ministry offers both income-generating activities for prostitutes and educational support for children so that vulnerable women and children will have the job skills to be self-sufficient. Love Never Fails cares with the compassion of Christ, taking every opportunity to share the hope of the gospel to change lives.

Mission Bethel shows the compassion of God to the very poor in the slums of Monrovia, Liberia, one of the poorest countries in the world, with about 84% of the population living below the poverty line of $1.25 per day. Over 500 impoverished children attend the Christian school at Mission Bethel, which serves as a feeder for families to attend Mission Bethel Church. Liberia has no prenatal care; Mission Bethel also operates a pregnancy center that provides counseling, clothing, toys, vitamins, and instruction on pre and postnatal care, infant care, and delivery assistance.
Teen Ministry seeks to win to Christ and improve the lives of severely impoverished teenage girls living in the “garbage city” of Cairo, Egypt. Teen Ministry primarily teaches these young girls to find joy in Christ; much of their time is devoted to praying and studying the Bible. Teen Ministry teaches girls who have never been taught hygiene or cleanliness how to wash themselves and make changes to improve their health through hygiene in their homes and families. In the area that Teen Ministry operates, girls are often abused and neglected. Teen Ministry shows them genuine love, often for the first time in their lives. Teen Ministry also educates the girls and provides them with medical and dental care.
