MasterKey Ministries is God’s vision for reaching our community with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Instead of preaching on a street corner (nothing wrong with that!), we look for ways to fill significant needs for those that face instability, develop loving relationships with those we serve, and earn the right to share our faith. Does that mean that we only serve those that share our beliefs? Absolutely not! We count it our privilege to provide assistance to everyone…regardless of who they are and what they believe.


We envision a community where every family has the opportunity to be successful. Our desire is to improve the quality of life for those that are hurting and to provide exactly what is needed educationally so no one has to continue a life of poverty one more year!


I count myself blessed to be a part of what God is doing in our community and to walk side by side by so many faithful individuals that desire to invest in others. That is why MasterKey has changed so many lives.
