Jubilee for the Fatherless
I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.
– John 14:18
At Jubilee we are seeing that there are many paths and ways to care for the fatherless in our midst and we are continually seeking to grow in our reflection of God as Father to the fatherless.
It is a blessing to see a continuum of care in action at Jubilee. There are a number of ways our people are serving in this context, including the Jubilee Youth Center, Hope Academy, Jericho Road, JUL Inititiative, and also Jubilee for the Fatherless.
Jubilee for the Fatherless exists to serve the church and Glorify God through establishing prayerful and strategic care for children and families involved in adoption, foster care, and orphan ministries. This will involve specific opportunities for mercy and support within our Church body and extending from our Church to those in need around the world ranging from long term support of orphans to enfolding children in need of families into the flock of Jubilee Community Church through foster care and adoption.
