Orchard is an incubator and support system for dreamers, do-ers, and those crazy enough to take steps of faith to serve those in need. We exist to see a world where Christ is known by the actions of His followers. From comprehensive online training to time tested resources, everything we do empowers those moving in that direction and calls others to join them in good works.
Orchard empowers leaders through comprehensive online training and real-time resources. Our services are primarily focused on equipping leaders of non-profit organizations. Their innovative work allows Orchard to focus on a niche group whose work has a broad impact. We understand these leaders are unique individuals with their needs and challenges. Therefore, we strive to serve each leader we engage with a “Systematically Individualized” approach. Our goal is to inspire and empower every leader to achieve their full potential by providing them with the resources they need to thrive.
To ensure that we provide the best possible support to the participants of The Partners program, we regularly assess three critical areas of their ministry health. These evaluations help us identify areas where we can help our participants improve and grow.
Before we can love our neighbor well, we must love the Lord our God with all of our heart, our soul, our strength, and our mind. Glorifying Jesus Christ is the main goal of all that we do. Every aspect of Orchard ultimately exists to serve others and introduce them personally to Jesus.
Prayer is a multi-faceted communication with God – upward, inward, and outward. It is also an intentional component of all of our ministries. Prayer is the tool God has given us to communicate with Him for our personal growth and for clarity concerning our service in the world.
Love is not merely an external action; it is an
internal motivation. We serve, not out of a sense of duty or obligation, but because God loves us. We are able to receive His love and we want to pass that love on.
The Bible informs, guides, corrects, and instructs
our faith in Jesus by the power of the Spirit. With great authority the Bible instructs us on how we should lead our ministry. It provides wisdom and clarity. It guides us on what we should spend our time on.
We are not designed to do life alone! Christian
community is Jesus-followers coming together to encourage and spur one another along throughout
life’s challenges. Ministry, ultimately, is meant to be an extension of the love we have as the Body of Christ.
The Lord uses creative ways to reach people over the course of history. God creates people in His image with unique gifts, talents, and abilities. We believe ministry is most effective when it is done around the ways God has created His people, for when we do it leads us to new and innovative ways to share the love of Christ in the world.
