Going the Second Mile
There are 147 million plus vulnerable children world wide. 147 TEAM exists to provide critical needs to show the love of Christ to children in the United States. Our desire is to go the second mile based on scripture in Matthew 5:41 that says, "If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles." Our hearts are burdened to serve children who are right in our own backyards, down our streets, in our schools and all across communities in this country. We want to give these children who are falling through the cracks a piece of empowerment to help them find their greatness within.
The founder of 147 TEAM, Gwen Oatsvall, formerly co-founded 147 Million Orphans that served vulnerable children internationally for over nine years . 147 TEAM has taken the call to empower those with the desire to serve by opening avenues to do so together in order to make a big noise for the Kingdom of God.
