My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Coastlands Consultants Incorporated, Manchester, NH, USA
I volunteered with Coastland Consultants twice at Manhattan Christian Academy. The experience was life-giving and encouraging for both the team and the children we ministered to. Even the staff was positively affected by our ministry to the students. This school is in a poor area of New York City, and the children, despite attending a Christian school, were often exposed to divorce, drug use, and poverty in their neighborhoods and even at home. Spiritual Emphasis Week provided a time of joy and learning about God's Word that encouraged students and helped them through hard times.
In my time working with the Coastlands Team, I met some of the most committed and loving followers of Christ. The full time Coastlands Team lives a humble life in a humble home, they sacrifice a lot to ensure that volunteers are able to join them, and they devote their lives completely to do ministry. This is not some big, fancy church with fog machines and a cafe. This is a truly biblical ministry whose focus is never on themselves or their image... their focus is always on the Lord. This ministry is worth your time, prayers, and financial resources not because they are "cool" or run amazing luxury camps... it is worth it because they serve the Lord with everything they are given.
