This year, we are spending Advent exploring the ways the local church around the world reaches out to the marginalized in their midst. Follow along with our 2017 Advent Prayer Calendar.
Your Advent gift will be used to empower the local church to strengthen communities in need. At ARDF, we believe that the local church is often the most effective way to enact change.
