Mission Outreach

Whenever you did for one of the least important of these brothers
                                                                 of mine you did for me. – Jesus, Matthew 25:40
Church of Joy council members visit supported ministries on a semi-annual basis to ascertain that each organization is maintaining its mission to serve those in need.

Coachella Valley Rescue Mission
Serving the “least, the last, the lost”, the shelter is one of two in the county. The CVRM near Indio has operated the cold-weather shelter for the county for several years. Open from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m., they offer a hot meal and showers in a facility that can accommodate up to 200 people. A couple of years ago, between 45 and 65 people were staying at the armory each night. Last year that number jumped to more than 70.

The Salvation Army Cathedral City Corps
The Salvation Army’s message is based on the Bible. Its ministry is motivated by the love of God. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination. Among the activities are disaster relief services, day care centers, summer camps, holiday assistance, services for the aging, AIDS education and residential services, medical facilities, shelters for battered women and children, family and career counseling, vocational training, correction services, and substance abuse rehabilitation. More than 30 million people a year are aided in some form by services provided by The Salvation Army.
 Journey to Freedom Foundation
The foundation distributes the book Journey to Freedom: 30 Days to Forgiveness and Hope by Dr. Rich Dorst to those involved in recovery, prison and jail ministries, multi-faceted community centers, hospice programs and military personnel throughout the United States and Canada. The foundation has distributed over 145,000 books since April, 2011. A Spanish edition is also available.
Young Life Ministries
Young Life, founded in 1941, is a non-profit organization committed to making an impact on kids' lives and preparing them for the future. Young Life leaders leave the comfort of their adult worlds and enter the arena of high school and middle school life. You will find Young Life leaders sitting in the stands at football games, walking the streets of inner-city neighborhoods, driving carloads of kids to the shopping malls or tutoring students in study centers after school. Young Life leaders model trust, respect and responsibility to their young friends, and they do it within the context of a teenager's world.
