The poor and vulnerable

Through 12plus1 you support many causes. 12plus1 interns provide a crucial service that will assist these organizations to advance their mission in a way that they may otherwise be unable to afford.  Your gift will impact children, elderly and everyone in between. It will bring healing and liberation to those hurt by addiction, prostitution, imprisonment, sex trafficking, hunger, abuse, and illness.  Currently, 12plus1 is partnering with:

”The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring glad tidings to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, and to proclaim a year acceptable to the Lord.”
— Luke 4:18

servant leaders


12plus1 is focused on providing opportunities for participants to experience Jesus through those they serve (Matthew 25:31-46).  They will become servant leaders through hands-on experience, reflection days, communal living, prayer, discussion and spiritual direction.  It is our goal to form disciples of action.  Individuals who are compelled to act with love, compassion, and kindness because of their faith.  Your support will play a significant role in creating a cadre of active disciples changing the world. 

those who long for unity


As our society becomes more divided, it is imperative we find ways to unite.  Support for 12plus1 allows participants to build relationships with those different from them.  Mutual sharing and exchange will bridge the gap and bring healing for racial, socio-economic, and religious divisions.  12plus1 will promote acceptance, tolerance and harmony.  In addition, those who live in solidarity with the poor and vulnerable will become their greatest advocates and bring others into unity.
