We support mission partners in our local and global communities. Some partners include:
Interfaith Hospitality Network
Interfaith Hospitality Network helps to accommodate families in need of housing and food assistance in Johnson County. They do this through host partners like Asbury who open their doors and provide home-cooked meals for one week four times a year. We are proud to be a part of this ministry, every quarter we open our third floor to families experiencing homelessness providing a safe, comfortable space where they can rest.
