Mission and Vision

Why Are We Here?

Our Mission is …

Acts One Eight Ministries, Inc. (AOEM) is a multifaceted Non-profit organization. AOEM produces social change via education and organization development, career preparation, and community development. AOEM offers places of prayer and serves as spiritual advisors and counselors to religious institutions. A large part of AOEM’s funding is through private donations.

Our Vision is …

Our vision is based on the Scripture in Acts 1:8 where Christ commissions the Apostles to witness for Him in Jerusalem, in all of Judea and Sameria, and to the ends of the earth. The name spun from dialogue between AOEM’s founder and a Board Member after the Board was informed the organization’s first name choice for IRS approval as a 501(c)3 was taken. Interestingly, the Board Member suggested ACTS ONE EIGHT. The suggestion resonated with our founder as he had been impressed to create a Non Profit that would Start Here, Go There, and End Up Everywhere… Hence, Acts One Eight Ministries, Inc. was presented and accepted. This vision of Social Change has GLOBAL implications. The goal is to expand from Suffolk/Portsmouth, Virginia to Dallas, Atlanta, New York, Miami (and every major city in the United States), to London, Paris, major centers of Europe, Asia, Africa and the uttermost parts of the earth.
