Fellowship of 1000

AGAPEinsert.inddProject AGAPE is seeking 1,000 people to help support this vital mission effort by contributing $100 year.  This money will help underwrite the Western North Carolina Conference’s commitment in this joint ministry venture with the North Carolina Conference.

Project AGAPE’s annual budget is supported through both conferences, as well as special offerings and other donations which pays salaries for staff, office space, transportation expenses, and salary support for the ministry and medical staff in Berdzor.


The Fellowship of 1000 is open to both individuals and groups of any size.  Small groups, circles, and Sunday School classes can contribue to the ongoing cost of having a vital ministry in Armenia.  The $100 donation can be for a few or as many years as the donor cares to contribute.


Project AGAPE is the only humanitarian aid organization licensed by the government of Nagorno-Karabagh to serve the Kashatagh region.

Project AGAPE’s Board of Directors includes clergy and laity from both the Western North Carolina and North Carolina Conferences of The United Methodist Church, as well as Project AGAPE’s staff of eight in Armenia.  This team of people carry out the task which:

  • Ensures all shipments get through customs and are distributed to the neediest
  • Works with the Armenian Apostolic Church and government officials in getting the most help to the most people
  • Arranges details for two to for building teams to server each year.
