    Freezing Nights

    Freezing Nights is a ministry to help feed, clothe and house homeless adults in Puyallup/South Hill. It is a cooperative effort of 12 local churches who pool resources, volunteers and shelter locations 7:00pm-7:00am, 7 days per week from November through March. In addition to physical needs, guests are offered referral resources such as mental health care, medical care, veteran's services, and housing options. They receive spiritual ministry and guidance, as well as Christian love and respect in a safe, stable place.

    Pope Elementary

    High Pointe is proud to partner with Pope Elementary School to assist with food needs for children at food risk and to provide tutors for children struggling with reading. Tutoring is organized through Puyallup School District's Communities in Schools, Good Samaritan Readers Program. High Pointe volunteers receive training in the fall and tutor October through June. Weekly tutoring sessions require a one hour commitment. Education is often the way out of poverty and, without education, the cycle of poverty will almost certainly continue. By helping secure the foundations of reading for these children, tutors break down significant barriers to a better future.

    Guatemala

    High Pointe has been sending teams to Guatemala since 2003. We partner with The Good Shepherd Church in Santiago Atitlan and their mission church in the nearby village of Cerro De Oro. Teams build houses for impoverished families, offer Christian leadership training in the public schools, encourage village women with a Women's Ministry afternoon, distribute medical kits and visit and pray with families who have previously received houses. We share the gospel with words, loving actions, and practical assistance. In addition, we partner with the community to provide high efficiency cooking stoves to improve health and lessen the workload for women and girls.

    Ethiopia

    Shire New Word of Life Church- Through Fellowship Church, High Pointe has also gotten to know and partner with New Word of Life Church in the town of Shire, which is in northern Ethiopia. Pastor Temesgen Gebrihewet planted this church in an area that can be hostile to the gospel and the evangelical church often faces persecution there.

     

    South Africa

    High Pointe has been partnering with ministries in South Africa since 2008. We work with Pastor Dumisani Mzameko in his ongoing efforts to fight the AIDS Pandemic in South Africa, minister to those infected with HIV and AIDS and reach out to the displaced and impoverished. Our teams work alongside Pastor Dumisani in feeding programs for children in the township of Gamalahke, as well as his evangelistic ministry to rural farm workers, an AIDS hospice, prison ministry, tribal and youth leadership programs.
