About Spend Yourself®
In September 2008, Columbians immersed themselves in Bible study, prayer and worship, focusing on understanding the plight of those struggling with hunger. This month-long, church-wide immersion concluded with a commitment to a long-term, concerted effort to address both spiritual and physical hunger around the world.
The Spend Yourself ministry began as a church’s call to put faith into action. Today, it is a partnership with other agencies, churches and individuals who are passionate about sharing God’s love for the world by sharing the gift that God so generously gave us: LIFE. Through community projects, education and prayer, this ministry’s goal is to give bread for life while also sharing the Bread of Life, our Lord Jesus Christ.
