Since 1983, MWOA teams have worked on more than 2,000 projects, ranging from construction and disaster relief to humanitarian efforts throughout the United States and in over 75 countries. The number continues to grow every day.
Each of the MWOA projects falls into one of the following categories:
Disaster Relief—Assisting with manpower and equipment during times of natural disaster.
Stateside Projects—Assisting with construction, renovation, and repairs on U.S. projects.
International Projects—Assisting with construction, renovation, and repairs on international projects.
Celebration Projects—Providing assistance through special events that bring hope and the love of Christ.
Discipleship—Global Fire Advance: Evangelism, discipleship, and church planting through the power of the Holy Spirit.
The Mission of MWOA is to provide opportunities for men and women to volunteer their skills in building projects around the world. Even though their main emphasis is coordinating construction teams, they also work with disaster relief and recovery, humanitarian projects, celebration teams, and discipleship training.
MWOA often involves itself with World Missions activity around the world. MWOA began the Africa Firewall Project in 2013, and a few of the other overseas projects involving their participation include building the National Ministry Center in Senegal, Africa, and the national headquarters center in Mozambique. Of late, the MWOA have coordinated relief efforts in the Caribbean, particularly Puerto Rico.
Teddie Bennett, assistant director/office manager, says: “MWOA has always thought of itself as the boots on the ground for World Missions projects.”
