WebsiteThe Micah Project
The Micah Project is one of FPC’s anchor partners for the Children at Risk focus area. Reaching out to the street boys of Tegucigalpa, the Micah Project shares the love of Christ and hope for both a spiritual and physical transformation in their lives. These courageous Micah guys, all of whom spent anguished childhoods on the streets or in impoverished homes, are learning to become Christian leaders through discipleship, formal education, and opportunities to serve others who are in need. The vision of Micah is to support these young men as they learn to "act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with their God" Micah 6:8
The Micah Project truly is one of FPC’s longstanding and vibrant global partnerships with involvement from all ages of the congregation, whether through prayer, giving, going on mission and vision trips, serving as “Christmas elves” for the ministry, or joining Micah for events such as the graduation in November. FPC has been sending two mission teams to Honduras each year since early the 2000s, and we have recently added a spring trip for The Table Sunday School class. We also have sent an annual vision trip for the Micah Project graduation each November since the first graduation.
The new Micah Project house located on the outskirts of Tegucigalpa is a “dream come true” for founder, Michael Miller, the boys, staff and those who travel to Honduras. For the past few years, crime has been on the rise in the city, initially serving as more of a nuisance and more recently, as a threat to the safety and lives of the boys and staff there. The opportunity for the boys to live in a more tranquil and safe environment is truly a blessing. They also have more space to express the energy that boys and teenagers need!
