I want to tell you how The Spring has expanded its ministry to youth and families. In 2021, we have a greater need than ever to raise funds. God has moving us along more quickly chan we can keep up–which is a good thing but very stressful when everyone seems to want something but not many want to contribute. I want to take a moment to invite our friends, family, and community to partake in this work. Over the last few months, we have designed the Team Willcox Scholarship Fund because we feel a need to teach people how to fish rather than merely provide fish, according to the old adage and, we believe, Scripture. If you are a pastor, run a ministry, or own a small business, I want to ask you to consider getting involved, contributing, and becoming a mentor for the betterment of Willcox, AZ.
As I write this, we are in need of $6,100 more than we are currently receiving monthly. So, I need your help. Please read on and see how we hope to make Willcox a better place and promote our contributors.
Christoa Ministries was born in 2019. I promised God that I would walk through whatever doors He opened without question. Surprise, doors open. We are now doing humanitarian work in the US and around the world with the Gospel as our basis. Through our Gospel initiative, we support youth and children, orphans, widows and widowers, at-risk youth, and teachers through emphases on arts education & programming, promoting arts & culture, children’s arts & culture, and youth development. We are working toward zero poverty, zero hunger, quality education, gender equality, clean water and sanitation, decent work and economic growth, reduced inequalities, sustainable cities and communities, peace, and justice and strong institutions.
Our model of world-betterment means equipping pastors and small businesses around the world for sustainability by teaching people to fish rather than merely providing them with proverbial fish and promoting lifestyles of humility and servitude rather than pride–which is the only viable path to true equality. It all begins with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
We operate locations, like The Spring in Willcox, AZ, to empower the impoverished to end the cycle, reach out to youth and families, and serve as safe zones for the vulnerable. Through these locations, we seek to end addiction and see people free from the oppression of the world’s systems and categories.
Through our international partnerships with pastors, we are seeing children rescued from trafficking operations, orphans find families, and widows cared for. We are also seeing excommunicated Muslims find refuge from persecution by their own families.
We seek to fund scholarships that apply to youth in The Sulfur Springs Valley and grants that encourage sustainability and improve the condition of the whole world through those we invest in. We believe that Christ came to save the world, not destroy it. We believe that His kingdom of peace and justice is overtaking the world, and we have a part to play.
None of our executives receive paychecks from Christoa Ministries. We are sincerely invested in bettering the world and saving lives through the work of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We want to invite you to partner with us from anywhere in the world. We won’t feed you some false promise about faith healing or receiving miracle money in return for your investment. Sacrifice with us. Your sacrifice has a part in the kingdom work we do. Let’s change the world, not shortchange it.
We believe in the local church and invest in the local church. We humbly ask that you do not stop giving to your local church in order to give to The Spring. If you give to The Spring, please give above what you give to your local church and encourage your local church to get involved in this worldwide ministry.

We seek to give scholarships and grants to promising individuals with sustainability in mind depending on how much is available from contributors. If you would like to contribute to our scholarship and grants funds, please donate here. Your donations help young people in and around Willcox go to school, start small businesses, plant sustainable churches, startup sustainable ministries, and alleviate poverty in meaningful ways (see below).
How your sacrificial donation is used (or not):
None of our executives are paid, so your donation goes directly toward non-profit causes each time, every time.
We no longer provide on-demand needs, meaning your sacrificial gifts are used more efficiently and for the good of the world.
When we offer scholarships, those scholarships are based on an individual’s vision for sustainability in life. The same is true for grants.
We do not discriminate based on skin color, sex, gender, political views, or religious affiliation.
We are a reformed Christian organization. We do not discriminate on these bases because we believe God wants us to serve others unconditionally.
We do withhold scholarships and grants from individuals who may use the grant to support a platform by which they hope to oppress or rule over others.
Rather than giving people fish and feeding them for a day, we desire sustainability, which, we believe, will alleviate poverty and facilitate true equality not only in the US but around the world.
We do not have “programs” like other non-profits. Our youth lounge is always open. We do have training through online meetings with leadership, consultations, and mentorship for those who receive our scholarships and grants. So, when you invest in The Spring, we invest in people. We are not a drive-by charity that hands out money and goes about our business. We are investing in people for the long-term. This is how we are, collectively, seeing the world changed in Christ.

How does one go about reaching and investing in the lives of those around them? Be there. Be True. Be faithful.
These three things are how we can make a difference in people’s lives as we serve those around us. Be there. Be there for them. Be there when they are hurting, when they are mourning, when the weight of the world is crushing them. Be there when they succeed, when laughter is free and easy, and when things seem carefree. Be there.
Be True. Be Honest. Always be ready to say the hard things, to give the counsel no one else is willing or able to give, and be sincere in your care for them. Be a true friend.
Be faithful. Don’t waver when times get tough. Be the person that can be depended upon. Be the light in the darkness that leads others out of the pit of despair. Be the one that keeps trust when given, that is there when called upon, and the one that can be leaned upon.
The Spring Willcox will be there
At the Spring of Willcox we plan on being there for the youth and families of our community. It is our goal to provide a safe, relaxing environment where our young people, their families, and those just needing a place to hang out can come together to study, have fun, receive spiritual direction, hone their performing skills, or just chill.
This is our community, our town, our families, and our young people. We are praying that we can come together to provide a valuable and life changing experience here in Willcox as we work towards that end. We want to thank everyone and encourage you to remember that a journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.
