In addition to taking the gospel to many nations, we also believe that providing for our neighbors is vital. We have many local ministries that we support both financially and with prayer.
Every Man a Warrior
The goal of Every Man a Warrior is to point men to a growing, intimate relationship with Jesus Christ by helping them develop the skills of spending time with God, understanding His Word and applying His truth into the areas of life that match up with the biblical guidelines of a spiritual leader. In the first year, these small groups of men experience several types of active learning, accountability and application of over 100 key verses in the areas of the Great Commandment, marriage, raising children, finance, moral purity, work, maturing through hard times, and the Great Commission. In the second year, they are equipped and encouraged to apply these skills and biblical principles into the lives of their own small group. EMAW is now in its third year at Faith Bible Church with over 60 men who have experienced the process, many of whom are now doing one-on-one and small groups within their own personal sphere of influence.

Juvenile Justice Ministry
Youth for Christ’s Juvenile Justice Ministry seeks to engage young people as they are met in a variety of youth-serving institutions. In Lincoln, as many as 800 students pass through the Lancaster Youth Services Center each year. Their hope is to meet these students in a time of significant need and develop a long-term relationship with them when they go back into their communities.
Eldon Dietrich from our church serves as chaplain to the Lancaster County Youth Services Center, visiting the Detention Center Monday through Friday. Learn more at www.yfclincoln.org/ministries/juvenile_justice.
Royal Family Kids Camp
Royal Family Kids Camp ministers to abused and neglected children in the Nebraska foster care system. Nebraska is home to 1,421 children in the foster care system, many of whom have suffered unimaginably at the hands of those who should have loved and protected them. At RFKC, these children experience the love of Jesus through the care of camp volunteers and specially planned camp activities. For some of the children, the week of camp is full of firsts—swimming, fishing, experiencing the love of an adult, and even having a birthday party. Learn more at www.royalfamilykids.org.
Good News Jail & Prison Ministry
Good News Jail and Prison Ministry reaches out to inmates incarcerated in the Lancaster County Correctional Facility. Understanding that real change must occur in the inner person, they take the gospel to inmates so that, though incarcerated, they can find true freedom through Christ.

While we don’t support these Lincoln ministries from our budget on a monthly basis, we like to include annual giving and promotion opportunities and encourage our church body to volunteer with them.
