Our Approach

Mission Lazarus enriches lives in the developing world by advancing its raw potential for everlasting generational change.

Transformation is a process, not something that happens in a moment. It occurs privately and commercially - in hearts, homes, schools, churches, clinics, and businesses. We work in all of these settings in two of the poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere - Honduras and Haiti - to catalyze meaningful, lasting change. 

Our holistic model impacts poverty through individual, family, community and economic development initiatives. 


Our Values

Christcentric Service

We desire to reflect God's presence, concern and love for humanity in all we say and do. 

Have the same mindset as Christ Jesus, who did not consider equality with God something to be used to His own advantage, rather he made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant. Phil 2:5-7

Unconditional Worth

We believe all people reflect the character and nature of God, and deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. 

So God created mankind in His own image.  Gen 1:27

Transparent Stewardship

We value honesty and integrity and strive to use all of our available resources responsibly to maximize the benefits for our team and those we serve.

Each of you should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God's grace in its various forms. 1 Pet 4:10

We consider creativity our constant companion as we continually construct service paradigms that disestablish dysfunctional charity practices.

And you will be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water whose waters do not fail. Those from among you will rebuild the ancient ruins; You will raise up the age-old foundations; And you will be called the repairer of the breach.  Isa 58:11-12

Innovative Sustainability

We believe that faith, hope, and love are capable change agents along the journey of life that reveal God's power to redeem and mold us. 

He will swallow up death forever.  The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears from all faces; He will remove his people's disgrace from all the earth.  Isa 25:8

Continuous Transformation
