Stewart Road Church of God in Monroe, Mich., under the direction of Pastor Joe and Carmella Byrd, was recently recognized for their on-going efforts in supporting the ministry “Orphan Run 4 Hope.”
Under the umbrella of the Church of God International Youth and Discipleship Department, Orphan Run 4 Hope project helps ordinary people do extraordinary things by participating in a 5K, 1/2 or full marathon charity run to benefit orphan children around the world. The organization exists to “be a bridge between churches and passion-driven people to orphans and orphanages that truly need help.”
“Stewart Road has consistently been the top church fundraiser for Orphan Run 4 Hope for the last four years,” stated Mark Swank, coordinator of youth missions. “They have raised over $52,000.00 that has helped provide for orphans in 27 countries. The amazing people of Stewart Road Church of God along with their leadership team, Robin and Joel Luallen, do an awesome job each year making a difference in the lives of orphan children. We are so thankful for all that they have done!”
