Statement of Faith:
We believe that God created all human beings and intends for all people to have the opportunity to reach their unique potential as His children. We believe that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, died so that we might have abundant life in Him. Issuing from these creative and redemptive acts of God is the obligation to extend God's love to everyone, everywhere. We are therefore compelled to minister to the spiritual, emotional, and physical needs of God's people as a means of drawing them into the circle of God's love.
"...In as much as you do it to the least of these you do it unto me."

In October of 1986 the Tri County Ministerial Association led by Reverend Doug Gilbert created the first board of the Tri County Christian Crisis Ministry. Its mission was for it to be a Christian Crisis Ministry that exists to provide a united Christian response to the hunger and financial crisis needs of households in the areas of Wilkes, Surry,
and Yadkin counties.
Today we continue that mission.
We focus on making the maximum positive effort for our community. Our staff and volunteers provide the momentum that helps us affect change. Using data driven models,along with Christian values, we provide solutions that make a long-lasting difference.
