Churches Helping Churches was created in the wake of the devastating earthquake that hit Haiti on January 12th, by Mark Driscoll and James McDonald. C.H.C was created on the base of Galatians 6:10—“…let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.” C.H.C mission is to address the immediate and long-term needs of churches in areas of devastation. Many people might wonder why help churches and not give supplies to everyone? C.H.C believes that in helping the churches they will have a lasting impact on the community. By rebuilding churches they are restoring the infrastructure in which aid can flow into the communities in areas most needed. Churches help address the practical and spiritual needs of a country. Rebuilding a church has an impact that will last much longer then that of any supplies or goods.
“When the magnitude of a catastrophe can be described as “biblical,” it is the local church that reminds people that another biblical concept is even more powerful: hope in Jesus Christ.”
Below is a video of Mark Driscoll and James McDonald speaking about C.H.C on the ground in Haiti days after the earthquake.
C.H.C’s aim is not to be a quick band-aid fixes but they want to prepare the Haitian Church to have a legacy and they have a game plan to do so.
