Vision Statement

Preventing tomorrow’s orphans by equipping today’s families through the local church.

The Greater Vision

To become one family in Christ.

How We Implement the Vision

The Lulu Tree’s mission is to prevent tomorrow’s orphans by equipping today’s families through the local church. When the church becomes the cornerstone of a community, the downward spiral of poverty is upended as families work together to develop healthy, sustainable villages rooted in the love of Christ–and disciples are made in all nations.


This is accomplished by partnering with pastors so that they can care for their own families and their church families. Our efforts include church-planting, pastor training, micro-investments and more as we equip the local church to become the cornerstone of each village.


The church can then equip villages by providing community training through the church, including soap-making lessons, prayer clinics and community clean-ups, love offerings for the unreached, and health, hygiene and nutrition classes.


Individual families can then be helped through micro loans, business training, and educational assistance.


The most vulnerable are protected when communities are equipped to care for their own, in the name of Christ. Strong families with roots in the local church form the foundation for thriving, happy children.

“His intent was that now, through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms…” ~ Ephesians 3:10
