Serving With A Purpose is a non profit Christian organization that was founded by Melissa Toney on October 26, 2011. Our passion is not just to serve individuals and families in our communities but to serve in all we do with PURPOSE! How do we serve you ask? We serve in any area of need to holistically care for people and the different areas of their life that they want to change. When you’re born, you don’t get a choice of the family you’re born in, the neighborhood you live in, the schools you attend or any other choices that are made pertaining to your life until you’re an adult. You couldn't choose the cards you were dealt in life but you can choose the way you play your hand. Negativity and poor choices are barriers that break families down for many generations. Those are things that can be changed. If your mom/dad didn't graduate from high school or college S.W.A.P. that out for a diploma and a degree. If you have a family history of drug addictions or violence S.W.A.P. that out for sobriety and choices of love. Generational curses can set the stage for strongholds that can keep you in mental, emotional, and physical bondage. The fear of failure and not having guidance, support, encouragement, and examples of positive things will in many cases cause a person to stand still, not because they want to but because they don't know how to change their situation.. S.W.A.P. is a movement and mindset change. Changing out a mindset of negativity and bad choices that will lead down the wrong path to a mindset of positivity and making good choices leading down the right path that will impact your life and others around you.
What is S.W.A.P. Kids?
Due to the high volume of kids from the families our organization services, in 2014 we started S.W.A.P. kids. Servanthood is so important and in life just a simple act of love and kindness can help turn someone's life around. We formed a board of kids that come up with missions and ways they can serve twice a month and along with all the kids in the organization we make the missions POSSIBLE. The ages of kids that attend the missions are 5-18. Transportation is provided for all the missions. We also provide S.W.A.P. kids with the life skills and resources to better equip themselves as they learn to serve others. Proverbs 22:6 says "Train up a child in the way he should go and when he gets old he will not depart from it." We want them to always know that kids matter and kids are able to make an impact on this world. We teach them it’s always better to give than to receive and missions to SERVE are POSSIBLE!
