Missions & Community Outreach

Desert Oasis Chapel believes that as part of good Christian Stewardship, we should return 10% of the gifts made to us back into the Christian Community. Therefore, we set aside 10% of the donations made to us into a fund designated as Missions and Outreach and our Missions and Outreach Committee seeks out primarily local organizations who have as their basic mission either the spreading of the Christian message or helping those who are truly in financial or spiritual need. We have also given to natural disaster relief causes.

We select organizations who have low administrative expenses so that the majority of our money goes directly to the actual cause itself.

We donate to food banks that assist those affected by HIV, organizations who minister to gay youth who have been damaged by churches that condemn their lifestyle, missionaries who rely solely on donations for their support, organizations who provide food for the homeless, and organizations who care for the sick and dying.
