IAMercy seeks to partner with others to bring the transformative power of Christ’s mercy to the international poor by caring for individual persons – emotionally, spiritually, mentally, and physically – in order that they may in turn lead their communities to the holistic wellbeing and love that Christ envisioned for them in His teachings.
In an effort to accomplish its Vision, IAMercy has adopted the following methodology for meeting three tiers of need among the international poor:
Tier One: Health, Shelter, and Safety
Empower Life…by meeting the holistic needs of the international poor. This means IAMercy will try to meet the basic physiological and safety needs (e.g. medical care, food, shelter, and clothing) of those to whom it ministers.
Tier Two: Love, Family, and Faith
Embrace Love…by creating a safe atmosphere for genuine community. In general, IAMercy will attempt to build a family, not an orphanage. IAMercy will seek to establish a home, not a shelter. It will attempt to lead those under its ministry to the knowledge that they are loved both by God and IAMercy’s caregivers in an intimate way.
Tier Three: Self-Sustenance, Self-Esteem, and Societal Contribution
Equip Leaders…by empowering individuals with Christian religious and secular education, while helping them to achieve self-esteem. IAMercy desires that recipients of its benefits would eventually become self-sustaining. Moreover, it seeks to challenge others to share the mercy they have received with the community around them. IAMercy wants those to whom it ministers to become agents of holistically positive change within their own society.
In addition, IAMercy seeks to build strategic partnerships with other individuals, churches, organizations, etc. for the purpose of furthering the Vision.
