Missions & Outreach

34 "Then the King will say to those on his right, 'Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.' " ~ Matthew 25: 34-36

2023 Initiatives

2023 is going to be even better than 2022! No matter what goes on in life, "giving" feels good. It is always a joy to help put a smile on someone else's face. This year,  we will  continue in our efforts to bring Matthew 25: 35-36 to life by blessing others who otherwise might not receive in any other way.

Already in the works for 2023 is...



Zion's 25 to Life Missions & Outreach Ministry is partnering with The Power of One Mission and Outreach Ministry, and July 15th-21st of 2023, we are headed on a mission trip to help with VBS for two churches (Roehampton Baptist Church & Comfort Hall Baptist) in Montego Bay, Jamaica. This is not a pleasure trip nor a vacation.  We will be working! ...and we are very excited about this endeavor. To be able to help others and be a blessing to them is a wonderful thing. It feels so good to give and to help.
25 To Life is always on a mission to give back as much and as often as we can. Doing so takes funding. We, the members of the team, make contributions, our church, Zion Christian Ministries, and church members make contributions, and our families make contributions. We open up our giving portal to you, our friends, to be able to make contributions as well. If you would like to give toward our missions and outreach efforts, please do so below. Any amount you donate is greatly appreciated, and will be used to bless a man, woman, or child in our very own backyard, in our very own community. To donate now, please enter the amount you would like to give, click the Choose a fund drop-down to the right and select 25 to Life, click Next, and continue to follow the onscreen directions. Thank you so much for your kindness!


10K Finish Strong Seed, Thank you to Everyone who contributed!

This seed initiative was implemented to assist in funding 25 To Life's missions such as our annual Easter outreach effort with Belle Aire Baptist Church, school sponsorships, food pantries, angel tree, mission trips, and so much more. One of Zion's objectives has always been and will continue to be  expanding our reach and bringing more souls to Christ resulting in more life-changing testimonies! From the bottom of our hearts, we sincerely appreciate all who made contribution towards this campaign. Our goal was to raise $10,000 by 2022 year's end . We didn't quite reach that amount, but we came close. We are grateful!

2022 Angel Tree Christmas Was a Huge Success!

Our partnership with Prison Fellowship and their 2022 Angel Tree Christmas program was amazing. We had so much support from the member of Zion Christian Ministries, and we want to say "thank you" for your kindness and generosity. Everyone made sure to get their gifts and donations to us by the requested time, and the 25 To Life team was able to get them all wrapped and ready for the children. On Sunday, December 28th we had a Christmas Party for the gift recipients and what a beautiful time we had. It's just something about see children' s little faces light up with bright eyes and big smiles. Christmas season is always a reason to be a blessing to others.

Celebrating with local teachers

25 To Life made In-Service Day great for a few of Murfreesboro's finest teachers. Sticking firm to Zion's true nature, this ministry served teachers and staff at Daniel McKee Alternative School with breakfast, afternoon snack, and a small token of appretiation for their efforts and dedication in teaching. We also provided lunch and a small gift of appreciation to the staff at Holloway High School. Giving back is what it's all about. We simply desired to show appreciation to and honor those who willingly give of themselves daily teaching and instilling knowledge in our youth.


Two churches within the same community who serve the one and only living God come together to celebrate the Risen Savior! Easter Celebration 2022 definitely made its mark and established its place in history. So many people showed up to share in this wonderful celebration. 

Putting in work to bless those who help fill our children with knowledge

In April we got together to craft gifts for some deserving local teachers. Intentions for these gifts are to present them during teacher appreciation week which is in May. 

We get together and have a little fun too!

Conversing and playing games together strengthens our bond as a team. We work, we serve, and we have fun!

Partnership with Habitat for Humanity

The beginning of 2022, 25 To Life teamed up with Habitat for Humanity to gift bibles to new homeowners during their key-giving ceremony. We began soliciting donations and contributions toward this initiative in February and commenced this endeavor in March when the recipients were set to receive their keys. This was another wonderful opportunity for us to present the culture of Zion and increase visibility on this body of believers all in hopes of adding to God's Kingdom.  25 To Life loves to give back... It's what we do!


25 To Life kicked off our 2021 holiday missions at the end of October, and like a whirlwind, Zion and the Rutherford County community came through with the donations and contributions. We are so thankful to each of you for your kindness and generosity. Because of you, many families were blessed. You all helped us to actually fulfill our mission of bringing Matthew chapter twenty-five to life. Each 2021 initiative, from the Angel Tree project to the diaper drive and the Christmas cards projects, was a success. 


was a success ... so many donations & gifts received and distributed

Zion Christian Ministries and 25 To Life Missions & Outreach Ministry had the opportunity to partner with Prison Fellowship to bless families of incarcerated parents by sharing the Gospel and gifting through the Angel Tree Program. We were given a total of ten beautiful children from two different families. It was such a pleasure to be able to give back to the community and spread holiday cheer to these beautiful Angel Tree children helping them to have a great Christmas. We hope it was a Christmas they will always remember.


... another successful 25 To Life community giveaway!
25 To Life Missions & Outreach Ministry gave away diapers, wipes, and turkeys to several families over the 2021 Christmas Holiday Season. We were able to bless families with newborns and toddlers with items that can be pretty expensive when you have to purchase them on a regular basis. We also blessed families with turkeys too.  We wanted to give parents a little bit of a financial break during Christmas time as their budgets are hit a bit harder when trying to give their family a great Christmas.

2021 Operation Christmas Cards
