Petros Network is filled with generous people -- touching lives as extended hands... as most of us who cannot physically be there to help, encourage support or uplift people in need without this ministry. They bless others with their time, energy, and spirit pouring out from their own hearts to fill others with love and with courage to learn, grow and achieve more than one could image. Petros Network is managed with integrity, speaks truth and empowerment to lives of those who may not otherwise receive support -- an incredible combination.

I have watched this ministry grow and have admired the work they have done. In partnering with Petros I get to have the best of two worlds, Kingdom building and something near and dear to my heart, empowering others. I LOVE that they have empowered the local community to be self sufficient, I love that because of this wonderful organization the forgotten and often overlooked segment of this community has been empowered....widows and orphans! I admire Petros for not only providing for soul projects but also for everyday needs . I am so excited that this Fall I get to be the hands extended figuratively as I participate in the Medical/ Dental Mission. Our time and resources are very valuable, and they are many things we can contribute to, be assured that Petros Network is the real deal. My investment of time and resource is well spent and has eternal benefits.

Self serving individuals looking to build their own wealth, only motivated by their personal agenda.
Let's see the numbers. Not for Profit should be just that. Being in the ministry can be very profitable for some.

My family is very thankful to be able to support Petros network. It's the next best thing to being on the front lines and traveling across boarders. Petros seeks to empower the local people, so the work they begin during their visits continues well after they are gone. We were able to sponsor a church plant last year and look forward to doing more. I am honored to say that I know many of the volunteers and stewards of this organization. They are genuine, loving, they believe in what they are doing, God centered, phenomenal people. The work of the Petros Network reflects the heart of God.

My husband had the opportunity to travel with the Petros Network back in 2012. As a employee of a current non profit myself we were amazing with how giving and passion the Petros network has been in the lives of those around them. They enter into communities and offer support, training and love to all those they come in contact with. They are an organization that is changing the way we work together on a local level as well as internationally. They truly use all of there resources and energy to serve in a way that compels other to join in. I am a better friend, mother, daughter, sister, leader and community member due to Petros Network continually shifting my focus onto those in need.

I have supported the Petros Network since its inception. Why? The people involved are people of integrity who use the funds exactly how they say they are using them. Often charitable organizations use much of their revenue for overhead, but the Petros Network uses funds to help those they say they are going to help. I have also know people who have gone to Africa to help in the work, and they pay their own way. That says so much about the commitment of the people involved. I will definitely continue to support Petros.

My son and daughter in law participated in this ministry several years ago. They returned with amazing reports of what God is accomplishing through this ministry. Hundreds, if not thousands, coming to faith in Christ, and new churches being planted! The assistance and teaching this ministry is giving to the church in Ethiopia is making a huge difference, and is worthy of financial and prayer support!

I have traveled to Africa ten times with Petros Network and have seen the organization from every side. I have never seen a greater return on investment anywhere. The work that is being done through Petros Network is almost beyond description. It is the work of carrying the gospel to the last dark corners of the world and shining the light of Jesus into those dark places. It is Matthew 28’s call to the Great Commission being carried out in living color. Entire areas are turning away from witchcraft and to salvation in Christ. Widows and orphans are being cared for in an ever increasing measure. Widows are being trained to run their own businesses, and much, much more. Even Government officials have noticed differences in their communities and have personally told me that crime rates have dropped dramatically since Petros Network began ministering in the area.
Working in unity to see the unreached become the reached is what Petros Network is all about.

As a personal contributor and 2x participant on trips, I can honestly say that this ministry does what it says and accomplishes far more than can be imagined. The level of integrity, the quality of indigenous leadership, and the scope of vision cannot be matched. If you want to be part of a ministry that changes the world spiritually, socially, and economically, partner with Petros Network.

From the beginning this ministry has been about spreading the gospel and making disciples. I love their commitment to equipping those who are called to ministry, promoting organic growth within their own country.

The work they do with redemptive lift, that comes along side the making of disciples, is powerful in changing lives not only on earth but in heaven. I have been to Africa with them, I have seen it in action.

The leaders of this organization continue to give unselfishly and give all the glory to God. It is my pleasure to serve with them.

I have watched this ministry for five years and have the deepest respect for those who are leading it. They have a deep concern and respect for the people they are working with in Ethiopia and other countries in that region. I know that the work they do there costs them deeply in time, person discomfort and monetarily. They have focused on encouraging local leaders and taking very little of the credit. They have also been completely transparent with all the funding. Their stated goal is to find where God is working and then go and support that work however needed.
