Neighborhood Cooperative Ministries
NCM is a faith-based, non-profit, ecumenical ministry dedicated to providing emergency assistance to families in Norcross and surrounding areas of Gwinnett. It is supported by 23 local churches and numerous other organizations. They are always in need of helping hands in the areas of counseling, job training, sorting clothes & food, and children’s programs.
Foster Care/Live the Promise
Live the Promise is an extension of Project 686, and works to mobilize churches and families to care for foster children. The goal is to radically increase the overall number of foster families welcoming children into loving homes. Their plan engages and equips churches to raise up loving foster families and volunteers, committed to caring for foster kids, until there are more than enough families.
Brett & Ann North founded Tetelestai Missions on the conviction that God has called each Christian to serve as a missionary. Believing that there are no boundaries to this calling, they focus on both local and international projects. These efforts are connected to jail ministry, nursing home ministry, and global missions.
The Women of Gilgal
Gilgal, Inc. is a Christ-centered residential program for homeless women with drug/alcohol addictions. Their goal is to assist women in breaking the cycle of defeat that led them to drug & alcohol abuse, and replace it with a cycle of victorious living through Christ Jesus.
Good News Club
Good News Club is a ministry of Child Evangelism Fellowship in which trained teachers meet with groups of children in various places in order reach out to these school children. Each week the teacher presents an exciting Bible lesson using colorful materials and action-packed fun. The purpose of this ministry is to evangelize boys and girls with the gospel of Jesus Christ and establish them in the Word of God and in a local church.
Hungarian Community Church of Georgia
OHC is proud to partner with the Hungarian Community Church of Georgia by providing them resources to help monthly worship and outreach to the Hungarian community here in the Norcross area and beyond. You can serve as a monthly host for this wonderful congregation.
The Jerusalem Project
We are excited to continue on a new missions journey in 2020 by serving apartment complexes within minutes from our front door. Our desire is to provide OHC members an opportunity to share Jesus by making meals, packing school supplies, conducting community events and many other things. Be on the lookout for excting events planned in 2020.
Norcross Christian Academy
Norcross Christian Academy is a ministry of One Heart Church. At NCA we create a safe environment that allows preschoolers to discover and learn the way God has created and gifted them to learn. The types of experiences provided in the preschool years guide children to their earliest feelings and attitudes toward faith and spiritual transformation later in life. We focus on what is best for your child and do our best to provide them with a quality, memorable school experience.
Atlanta Morning Center
Morning Center was founded in 2011 as a project of Samaritan Ministries International, a 501(c)(3) Christian charity and seeks to provide Gospel-centered prenatal through postpartum care to women at risk of abortion in urban and under-served areas, at no charge, in the Name of Jesus. Our desire is to return charitable maternity care to a private patient-centered model. Through true Christian charity, Atlanta Morning Center is a grass roots effort funded by individuals, families, churches, and other like-minded organizations and does not accept any government funds. Atlanta Morning Center was begun as an intentional collaboration with Georgia Right to Life and is the next integral piece in the pro-life ecosystem.
