Afghan Evacuee Resettlement Initiative
Recently our family at Heritage quickly responded to the growing needs of Afghan evacuees at a nearby base in a profound way. Yet, even as money was coming in, the needs of these precious people were changing.
By the grace of God, the immediate physical needs of the evacuees have been provided for and now Heritage desires to help in an even greater way, by helping Afghan families resettle in Lynchburg.
Financial Help. Physical Care.
In order to help Afghan families resettle, we will be relying on financial help to pay for initial living expenses and basic necessities. There is also a need for physical care, as families may need help with transportation, education, employment, and more.
Whether you are ready to give of your money or your time, we know the Lord will use both to further His Kingdom.

Ministering to our Sent Workers
Heritage is dedicated to the proclamation of the gospel around the world by raising up, training, and supporting global workers.
While the Stateside discovery and equipping stages are more visible to our entire church family, once workers are launched, much work continues behind the scenes in their shepherding care. Whether through small groups or larger teams, Heritage has made the regular encouragement of our workers a priority.
This coming year we are planning to send a large team to minister to our global workers by providing Bible teaching, corporate worship, counseling, activities for the children, and rest.
Part of the Christmas Offering will go to help pay for this team’s travel expenses and the resources needed to encourage our sent workers after two very difficult years overseas.
