    Do you support any para-church ministries? If so, would you share which ones and why?

    Personally, we support these para-church groups in addition to our own church.

    Westminster Christian School - where our kids attend school

    First Choice Women's Clinic - prolife ministry to women due to unplanned pregancies - counseling, support, adoption, and post-abortion counseling - these folks do an amazing work

    Youth for Christ - interdenominational ministry to teens -- high school Bible clubs, after school clubs and juvenile justice centers

    Does anyone else support these or other similar organizations?

    We currently do not support any para church ministries just because of finances. We tithe to our church and that is all we can do at this time. Although maybe I'm lying. I just sent $20 to a friend's daughter who is doing a "walk" fundraiser for her Christian school and I will certainly support a walker for our local crisis pregnancy center. So I guess I do.

    Oh - and DH and I met through Youth for Christ. He worked for Campus Life and was my leader. :D We DID wait until I graduated before we started dating. LOL
