We are excited to announce that we are now serving in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania! Partnering with Productive Lives and Cornerstone Community Church, two ministries already well-established in that area, we will focus our work in two sections of the city, namely, Kensington and South Philly. Cam Garven, head of Productive Lives and long-time volunteer and mission leader of World Servants, has been serving in Kensington with his church and family for many years. He, along with Joe Darrow and Andy Schultz, who have been pastors for more than 20 years, will be our community leaders. Opportunities abound for rehabbing homes/outreach buildings, food distribution, and outreaches to the neighborhood. Our hope is to mobilize teams that desire to serve people in need.
The intention of World Servants is to bring a “hand up” and a message of hope. Needs in the community can range from leaking roofs, homes needing insulation, and families struggling to provide the basic necessities, as the majority of the population lives below the poverty line.
