The Church of Christ in Gardendale has been blessed by Lord to be able to support several efforts within our brotherhood. Here are some with which we are involved
Durango, CO Preaching Internship
The Church of Christ in Durango, CO has been involved in training preachers for over 20 years now. The Durango preaching internship is an intense 18-month program designed for preachers who have come out of preaching school and are wanting to "sharpen their swords" even further.
Guy Orbison, the mentor of the program, has helped many men with their preaching through this effort and men from the program preach all over the country. Various states include Texas, Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, Montana, California, and many others. We are proud to be a supporter of this great and valuable work going on in the Lord's Body!
The Truth in Love TV Program
The Truth in Love is a half-hour television program that is part of the evangelistic outreach of the Brown Trail Church of Christ in Bedford, Texas. With help from individual Christians and other churches of Christ, we are currently broadcasting in several television markets in the United States, and all over the world via ttil.tv and the Gospel Broadcasting Network (www.gbntv.org).
You can watch the Truth in Love program every Sunday morning at 8 AM on KMID ABC Channel 2 in the Midland/Odessa Area.
Cherokee Home for Children
The mission of Cherokee Home for Children is to engage children in education, community, and church-related activities to positively influence their lives. Preparing the children for the time where they leave Cherokee takes wholesome and dedicated people.
Since March, 1979, the home has been under the oversight of the elders of the Austin Avenue Church of Christ in Brownwood, Texas. The board of directors is made up of men from this congregation.
Foster's Home for Children
Since 1960, Foster’s Home for Children has demonstrated the ability to meet the needs of troubled children and families by providing residential group care, foster family care, and adoptions. Foster’s Home services, based on strong Christian values, are presented by our professional staff in an educational approach, teaching appropriate skills for interactive living. Foster’s Home operates on sound financial principles with very limited long-term debt. The day to day operations are supported by faithful individual donors and approximately 300 churches of Christ throughout Texas
