The ministerium works with many local organizations, not only local pastors and churches.


ELizabethtown Area School District

We work with the school district to inform congregations of needs throughout the community. Support is brought through the Bear Bags food program, mentoring school district children, helping students with monetary needs for important needs like glasses, or educational needs such as tutoring, or special class expenses. To help with the buddy program contact Tina at


Elizabethtown Area Communities That Care

Elizabethtown Area Communities That Care is a community-based, private, non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of children, youth and families in the Elizabethtown Pennsylvania area.  EACTC also partners with Churches that Care to provide mentors to children in the school district, organize the annual Elizabethtown Block Party, schedule forums to educate pastors and the community on social issues facing many today and how we can be apart of the solution. To help with the mentor program contact Tina at


Elizabethtown Area HUB

The Elizabethtown HUB is funded by the United Way to make sure that everyone in Etown has what he or she needs to lead a productive life. Our goal is to make getting help easy for anyone who needs it. We have many services available, but they are sometimes difficult to find; we want to remedy that.

The Etown HUB is working to:

• connect all service providers so that everyone knows what every other provider has to offer

• make sure that all service providers are making regular referrals to other agencies as they see the needs of clients

• streamline the application process into a universal form to make it more efficient to get help

• publicize the HUB and services provided in our community

Partnership for revival

Partnership for Revival desires to fulfill the commandment in Acts 1:8 by inviting key ministries into our region, and by assisting key ministries inside and outside our region. We seek to do this by partnering and serving local churches and ministries. This takes many forms, including the sponsorship of Encounter events, Prayer Rallies and other expressions of faith that foster revival, and also fulfill the goals and desires of the churches in the region.
