DONATE: Global Christian Evangelism and/or Humanitarian Relief Project Donations
A Short History of our "Free Meal" and Community Outreach Ministries Activities
With Grant rejections and without tithes and public offerings the founders of TECHM International Inc. have sowed close to $3,000 per year to fund global evangelism and some humanitarian aid assistance. We need your assistance. We are a Non-Profit Church in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, USA.

Regardless of which state or city our house church or outreach ministries are located in “God always plants us where he needs us the most in, troubled areas. We foundered United for Christ Outreach Ministries in Clearlake, California, in 1995. Seemingly, before the ink from our California incorporation could dry on paper, poor families crowded into our little center for groceries, dinner, clothing, furniture, counseling, prayer, and assistance with their utility bills. They were not required to be Christians or attend church to receive assistance from our ministries. My family tithed into our ministry, and we received financial assistance from churches, businesses, the City Government of Clearlake, my Yuba College English Professor, and the manager of Pacific Gas and Electric Company to provide for needy people.
On my next assignment, God sent me to plant our ministries in a boarded-up dilapidated apartment complex in Monroe, Louisiana. New management was trying to work a miracle beyond their financial means. However, we planted Generation X Outreach Ministries in what seemed like a boarded-up ghost town. Two young men, ex-gang-bangers said, “None of the area churches ever came to see them.” So, they welcomed our ministries, knocked on doors and cursed their friends out until they came to church in the recreation room. Soon, children from other troubled neighborhoods and dysfunctional families joined our flock. I and my family tithed to feed them 1-2 times per week. The Holsum Bread Store gave me free bread and pastries for their families. Like the early churches in Acts 2 and 4 and Romans 16, we had all things common. We purchased school uniforms and groceries for them, as needed.
But we are generous to anyone regardless of their spiritual beliefs. Isn't God the same way? Ira’s Discount, my employer, was planning a Christmas Warehouse Sale. I asked the manager to allow me to put some clothing on layaway and purchase them on my discount tab for the people in my ministry. My co-workers attempted to talk me out of purchasing the clothes. I purchased $150.00 worth of clothes out of my $300.00 paycheck, went home and put a little money each gift, and had a Merry Christmas.
Today, Our humanitarian and disaster relief vision is profound and expansive. God has called me into a global outreach mission. We need your help to complete it. We need the global support from businesses and corporations who have the same heart and vision, which we have for the people in general, regardless of religious beliefs or their location in the world.
Teach a person how to fish and they could prosper for life. Therefore, we are raising funds to lower unemployment, build industries and free family medical clinics, establish clean water systems, adequate housing, agricultural, and mosquito abatement programs.
For six years, I and some of our ministers in America have tried to send funds to plant our vision and give to the needy, but our funding is insufficient in the fulfillment of our evangelism and humanitarian and disaster relief goals. I began our global mission of Christian Evangelism and Humanitarian and Disaster Relief Aid, but we need your presence, participation, and grant donations to accomplish each of our goals. I cannot rest comfortably, eat in peace, or take life's blessings for granted knowing that my impoverished ability cannot adequately help people who are without a warm house, food, clean clothing, shoes, free medical treatment, clean water, employment, elementary and vocational education, and Christian evangelism/church planting.
