“In dealing with poverty here and around the world, welfare and foreign aid are a Band-Aid. Free enterprise is a cure....Entrepreneurship is the most sure way of development. - Bono, Georgetown University
Since 1992, Oakseed Ministries has been assisting indigenous ministries by serving abandoned children and the poor in the Developing World's largest cities, bringing the good news of Jesus in word and deed. Oakseed supports 20 ministries in 15 countries.
The vision for Oakseed Ministries comes from Isaiah 61:3
"Bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor."
