How we are making a difference

This is how your giving is impacting people both locally and globally. 10% of everything given at Open Life goes towards impacting our world through our strategic partners. Our strategy is simple, we don’t want to reinvent the wheel, we want to partner with local and global organizations that are already making a difference in the world.

World Vision

A very special relationship has begun between Open Life and World Vision. There are many resources World Vision has access to and they need a local church to distribute these through.

ICA Surabaya, Missionaries John & Korie Taylor & John Vincent

ICA Surabaya is a multi-site english speaking church pastored by missionaries John & Korie Taylor that gathers in malls in Surabaya. John Vincent assists their work.

Speed The Light

The concept is simple: our students initiate the funding for this vital partner, so people can speed the light of the gospel to the world. This is accomplished by providing the “essential transportation and creative communication” equipment for missionary evangelism. Through modern transportation, radio, television, the printed word, and equipment for mass evangelism, our missionaries can better fulfill the Great Commission.  90% of what missionaries do on the foreign field depends on the items supplied through STL.
