He graduated from seminary in 1983 and was immediately called to start a church and school in the slums of Acul du Nord. That ministry continues today at CEDAN where the gospel is shared through ministering to spiritual and physical needs of the region. God has been with Pastor Richard in a way that transformation accompanies his work. He is still a young man with dreams of increasing the scope of his ministry into vocational training and microbusiness.

Fair Tax

11231[1]

The FairTax plan is a comprehensive proposal that replaces all federal income and payroll based taxes with an integrated approach including a progressive national retail sales tax, a prebate to ensure no American pays federal taxes on spending up to the poverty level, dollar-for-dollar federal revenue neutrality, and, through companion legislation, the repeal of the 16th Amendment.

The FairTax Act (HR 25, S 1025) is nonpartisan legislation. It abolishes all federal personal and corporate income taxes, gift, estate, capital gains, alternative minimum, Social Security, Medicare, and self-employment taxes and replaces them with one simple, visible, federal retail sales tax administered primarily by existing state sales tax authorities.

The FairTax taxes us only on what we choose to spend on new goods or services, not on what we earn. The FairTax is a fair, efficient, transparent, and intelligent solution to the frustration and inequity of our current tax system.

Goldwater Institute

goldwater final logo color

The Goldwater Institute was founded in 1988 by a small group of entrepreneurial Arizonans with the blessing of Sen. Barry Goldwater. Like our namesake, the Goldwater Institute board and staff share a belief in the innate dignity of individual human beings, that America is a nation that grew great through the initiative and ambition of regular men and women, and, that while the legitimate functions of government are conducive to freedom, unrestrained government has proved to be a chief instrument in history for thwarting individual liberty. Through research and education, the Goldwater Institute works to broaden the parameters of policy discussions to allow consideration of policies consistent with the founding principles of free societies.

Good Samaritan Health Services

good sam logo

Good Samaritan Health Services (GSHS) effectively fills an important niche in the health care of Tulsa’s underserved populations, not springing from a governmental mandate, but from a Christian grass-roots effort in our community. Last year, GSHS facilitated more than 8,200 patient visits – many with patients experiencing chronic diseases that need compassionate and consistent high-quality healthcare.

GSHS began in 1998 as a partnership between two organizations: In His Image, a faith-based medical residency program; and Cornerstone Assistance Network, a Christian human services organization. These organizations collaborated with other community leaders in response to an urgent need identified in the Tulsa community: Tulsa’s poorest citizens needed quality free medical care in a safe, convenient and supportive environment. Free clinics were held at Tulsa area apartment complexes in areas where services were most needed.

In 1999, GSHS unveiled its first mobile clinic: a refurbished 37-foot recreational vehicle. GSHS volunteers and staff worked with local churches, which provided facilities and volunteers for patient check-in, triage, counseling and optional prayer service. By 2000, the mobile clinic had 1,345 annual patient visits and, with the addition of a second mobile clinic (a 63-foot tractor trailer) in 2007, appointments increased 600% over the next nine years. Today, GSHS serves nearly 700 patients every month at one of its 40 monthly clinics at 14 locations across Tulsa County. Because the GSHS clinic is mobile, we can provide doctor consultation, testing and prescription medicines wherever the community needs the most care.

Good Samaritan also serves as the template of service for Mobile Medical Ministries, a subset of the Foster and Lynn Friess family Foundation, which encourages the start-up of new mobile medical clinics.

In His Image

In His Image logo

In His Image (IHII) exists to evangelize, disciple, train and mobilize healthcare professionals so that they are empowered to impact their nation and the world for Christ by improving health and meeting the spiritual needs of the unreached. The goal of our residency program is to train our residents to practice excellent, high quality, compassionate medicine in a wide variety of settings, focusing on medically underserved populations in the United States and overseas. We see medicine as a calling and invite you to explore with us what it means to be a physician “In His Image”.

IHII accomplishes its mission through a variety of methods.  Over the years we have partnered with In His Image alumni and missionaries to create overseas residency training programs.  Currently we have overseas residency programs located in Almaty, Kazakhstan; Macau, China; Shenyang, China and Kabul, Afghanistan, and Cairo, Egypt.

Another way IHII accomplishes its mission is through overseas outreaches, including providing free clinics, disaster relief assistance, orphanage ministry, spiritual conferences and medical conferences.  Numerous times a year, IHII sends teams of doctors, resident physicians and nurses throughout Asia and Africa to hold healthcare conferences and consultations.  Medical lectures, hands-on workshops and informal social meetings are some of the creative ways IHII is able to reach healthcare professionals in these countries, most of which are closed to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  IHII is also a sending agency and therefore is a support for individuals preparing to go on the mission field or ones who are currently on the mission field.

International Deaf Emergency

IDE

International Deaf Emergency is a non-profit organization which comes to the aid of deaf people who have undergone the trauma of natural disasters and are in need of humanitarian help. IDE was co-founded by Mike Friess and Emmanuel Jacq in 2010 as they traveled to Haiti immediately after the massive earthquake had struck. They played a vital role in helping a displaced Haitian deaf community of several hundred people relocate to new homes in Leveque Haiti. The organization began as an idea to give voice and access to deaf individuals who may otherwise be overlooked after such events, imposing greater hardship in them due to their handicap.

Their work in Haiti is a template of service that will be followed in other areas of the world as the need arises. IDE collaborated with other entities of similar design to achieve a broad-based result from initial relief which moved hundreds of deaf Haitians to a special humanitarian camp to the eventual relocation to new homes and opportunities now underway. Ability to cooperate with other relief organizations is a critical hallmark that was developed and put to use in Haiti.  IDE’s focus is emergence relief, development and reconstruction, and human rights.

Jacq and Friess were successful in bringing humanitarian supplies from the French Embassy in Haiti and Red Cross, leading to the creation of a camp for Deaf Haitians. This gave them inspiration to start IDE as a permanent solution to future relief situations.

Islamic Society for Liberty and Modernity

The Islamic Society for Liberty and Modernity (I.S.L.A.M.) provides a fresh, yet theologically valid interpretation of the Holy Quran and other Islamic texts using the traditional concept of Ijtihad (extrapolating meaning from scripture). Authoritative Islamic scholars describe Ijtihad as: “the heart of the religion…whoever destroys it, is like one who destroys the religion [Islam] itself; and whoever enlivens it, enlivens the religion in its entirety.” I.S.L.A.M’s goal is to revive Islam, save it from anachronistic interpretations, and make it suitable to every time and place, according to the words of prophet Mohamed (PBUH).

Love A Child

Love A Child is a Christian humanitarian organization founded by Bobby and Sherry Burnette. Working to reduce poverty in Haiti and ministering to the poorest of poor, their outreach includes 14 schools in remote areas where over 5,000 children are educated and fed daily. LAC distributed over seven million meals to Haitians last year in family feeding programs. They also run the Jesus Healing Center Clinic, mobile clinic outreaches, a Christian Radio Station, Tilapia Fish Farm and a Poultry Project. Other projects include “clean water projects,” distribution of new shoes, clothing, garden seeds, etc.

In January of 2010, Haiti’s earthquake “changed their lives forever.” LAC became the “largest field hospital” in Haiti and they learned how to care for 2,000 victims for over a year. It was called Camp Hope. Now the crown jewel is called ‘Miracle Village’. Bobby says the Lord gave him a vision to build it. All he could see were rows and rows of rainbow colored houses on land right next to Camp Hope. It has now come into being as a new village for all the families in their care after the earthquake. Almost 500 families are in brand new permanent homes, complete with furniture. The Village also has clean wells, playgrounds, soccer fields, a Medical Clinic and a Christian School. LAC believes the best is yet to come.

Milton Friedman first articulated and applied this idea of liberty and free markets to our education system in 1955. As he has pointed out numerous times, this was not merely a reaction to a perceived deficiency in schooling, but rather an interest in a free society.

Combining Qur’anic hermeneutics (examining the Qur’an from a linguistic and contextual perspective to understand its nature, contents and origin) with the study of modern Islamic thought, Abu-Zayd is developing a theory enabling Muslims to bridge their traditions to the modern world of freedom, equality, human rights, democracy and globalization. He earned a Ph.D. with highest honors in the field of Arabic and Islamic Studies from Cairo University and is widely regarded as a reformist hero for his courage in opposing Islamists. The object of death threats by al-Qaeda and others, he relocated to Europe in 1995, and is now the Ibn Rushd Chair of Humanism and Islam at the University of Humanistics in Utrecht.

Opportunity International

OI_revised_Master

Nearly half the world’s population, over 2.6 billion people, live on less than $2 per day. Is there a way to help them overcome subsistence living and rise above poverty? The answer is yes. One method that has been in use for over 40 years is called microfinance, granting small loans to individuals who have the entrepreneurial desire to lift themselves economically by starting or expanding a small business.   Microfinance offers a sustainable approach to overcoming poverty. Loans are specially tailored to the individual and business.

Opportunity International is the world’s largest Christian-based microfinance non-profits offering small loans, savings, micro-insurance and training to the working poor in nearly 25 countries in the developing world. Many loans are only $100-200 and are changing lives, helping break the cycle of global poverty, and giving hope to entrepreneurs around the world. Opportunity has about 1.5 million active loans of which 90% are women, has a loan portfolio of about $360 million and a repayment rate of 96%.  Motivated by Jesus Christ’s call to love and serve the poor, Opportunity serves all people regardless of race, religion, ethnicity or gender. As clients repay loans, Opportunity is able to recycle loans and lend to new customers, continuing leveraging each dollar to fight poverty. Microinsurance products help mitigate risk, giving people an opportunity to invest in themselves and their families with confidence.
