A number of our churches are very active in providing food distribution to their communities. A couple of Open Bible churches that have substantial food distribution ministries are now linked with our Convoy of Hope partner. The food pantry operated by Open Bible Church of Portland in Portland, Oregon, pastored by Jim Brown, received a truckload of food supplies for distribution. Convoy has also started a new ministry called Boxes of Hope, with this vision: “to see HOPE spread faster than COVID-19.”
Fort Des Moines Open Bible Church on the south side of Des Moines, pastored by Matt Sanford, has been approved as the first Boxes of Hope church partner in Iowa. You can check out the Boxes of Hope website at https://getboxesofhope.com.
