JBW exists to train and equip birth professionals from diverse backgrounds to come alongside women from their own culture to offer education, support, and community so that they can be empowered during their pregnancy, labor, and into motherhood. Lahmay Moo from the second service is one of the doulas, and Kayo Paw had a doula at the birth of her daughter Ku. Want to know more about JBW? Click here

The Ethiopian Evangelical Church Mekane Yesus is a large Lutheran denomination. Over the last few years, pastors from this church body have been studying here in Fort Wayne. Rev. Abdi and Rev. Mulugeta worshipped with us regularly. Though their church body is large, resources are not.
Covid-19 forced Ethiopian churches to not meet. Those churches in the rural area have been hardest hit. They do not have electronic banking. They are not equipped for online worship. Churches that don’t meet don’t have ways to support their pastors.
Now there is also a civil war going on in part of the country.
Rev. Mulugeta is trying to help over 80 such pastors not only survive but carry on ministry in unique ways. Want to know more about EECMY? Click here.
New Life receives many requests for help from both members and our community. This new fund will allow us to meet these needs.
