Carpenter’s Announce KHM as Beneficiary of Marathon X (10)

Barbara & Rob Carpenter are pleased to announce that the beneficiary for Marathon X (10) will be Kingdom Harvest Ministries. Our goal for this mission is $100,000.Kingdom Harvest Ministries (KHM) is a team of local, trusted leaders who are inspiring the younger generation to discover their gifts and purpose in life through a Biblical lens.

Also, the Kingdom Harvest Ministries directors volunteer their time to lead this ministry. KHM does has monthly expenses that does include food, curriculum, high school teacher stipends, admin costs, and incidentals. KHM partners with schools to teach students how to live a life of integrity, excellent character, and high standards.

They teach Bible curriculum to area youth up to 5 days per week. KHM currently serves in the Celina (grades 9-12) & Parkway (grades 2-12) School districts off campus.

The students and schools directly benefit as the principles of the Bible help influence the better behavior of the students. By coming to know God’s laws and boundaries, students will be better equipped morally as well as spiritually to combat the evils of our age. Indirectly, this benefits businesses and the community as these students then transfer the values of integrity and hard work into the community in which they live. Students who are diligent to pursue the word of God are overall better workers and better stewards of God’s possessions.

In 2014, Ohio enacted O.R.C 3313.6022 Released time courses for religious instruction. What does this mean? This enables parents who would like to enroll their son or daughter into a program like ours that instills the values that are the bedrock of our communities.

These programs are during the school day, off school property, voluntary, and privately funded. No tax dollars go to support the KHM program.

Their vision for the future is to continue to serve the communities of Rockford and Celina. Lord willing, they would like to expand their efforts into the surrounding areas.

They have been able to counsel several communities on how to start programs such as KHM’s. They have had conversations with St. Mary’s Schools and with a few community members of Wapakoneta.

KHM believes that they will be able to start programs in those towns or help individuals in those communities get their own programs started. Some of the same folks that serve KHM also volunteer their time for Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) and also the Destiny School of Ministry.

Our previous 9 benefits have raised $381,036.38. This money benefited one family, nine non-profits, and one Endowed Scholarship Fund which will provide 5 $1000 scholarships to Tri Star students this school year and continue to generate scholarships forever.
