Sowing Seeds of Life in Word and Deed
Sowing Seeds of Life in Word and Deed

Welcome to Life Seeds

Life Seeds was established in 2006 by a group of  Corvallis  Christians from several local churches.

Our goal is to put feet to our faith and show love in action.

Life Seeds is committed to the principles of partnerships, accountability, sustainability and empowerment . These principles guide us in choosing the programs we support. We favor programs that help people have the tools to create a better life. At the same time, we want to demonstrate compassion to those who have no options: the aged widow and the orphan.

After 2 trips to India and developing relationships with pastors and organizations from India since 2005, an opportunity opened up to build a neighborhood school. People in Oregon were eager to support this venture, but wanted tax deductability, so the idea for Life Seeds was born.

We  went to Uganda in 2006 and developed contacts there with a group of orphan centers in eight different villages. Life Seeds is working with Americans with ministries in Uganda. These Americans live in Uganda on a full time basis.  Jonathan Beggs, of Development Companions International set up and now provides oversight to our women’s literacy programs.

Our group has  been involved with local outreach over the past 10 years. We have a monthly grocery outreach program to families in need.

We’d like to continue and expand these ministries as volunteer and financial support increase.
