Brother Jeff and Mrs. Bellamy have been full time missionaries since February 2002. They are sent missionaries out of their home church, Lupton Drive Baptist Church in Chattanooga, TN and are working with Rock of Ages Ministries, Inc, in Cleveland, TN. Brother Bellamy is the department head of the Prison Prevention Team that reaches out to troubled youth and public schools world wide. The Prison Prevention Team, through the working of the Lord, has developed a curriculum called "Character Under Construction" and is used world wide in the public schools. Many souls have been reached and lives changed through this ministry. This ministry to schools and troubled youth is not just a Rock of Ages missionary only ministry; it is blessed because of it becoming a church outreach ministry. Local churches are trained by Brother Bellamy and the Prison Prevention Team of missionaries to create outreach ministries from the local church into that churches area public schools and/or troubled youth facilities. To date, this team of missionaries and churches are together reaching nineteen different states in the United States and eight different counties with the Prison Prevention Character Under Construction program. Brother Bellamy asks that you would consider contacting him and go see the program in action in a public school or youth facility to see more possibilities where God could use you to help reach the souls of the next generation.
Ebenezer Christian Children’s Home was founded in 1994 as an avenue to provide a loving, Christian environment to children removed from their homes due to neglect or abuse. ECCH is a fully licensed North Carolina Residential Child-Care Facility, and a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization. Ebenezer Christian Children’s Home believes that God has called us to continually share Christ’s love with all those who pass our way. We seek to minister to the spiritual, physical, emotional, and educational needs of the children that have been placed in our care. Ebenezer Christian Children’s Home believes all children have the right to be protected from abuse, to be treated with respect, to have people that listen to them, to have people that care for them, and have a safe and nurturing place to grow up and have their needs met and the support they need to achieve their goals. The vision of Ebenezer Christian Children’s Home is for all children to have a safe place to laugh, play, and dream.
The mission of Ebenezer Christian Children’s Home is to serve children by providing a loving, nurturing, and stimulating environment that will foster independence and ensure success among its residents. ECCH ministers to the spiritual, physical, emotional, and educational needs of the child. ECCH also serves as a resource to current and former residents, as well as birth and adoptive families, while allowing these families to maintain an active role in the development and implementation of goals and activities.
Heartbeat International Missions was started in 2008 as an outreach of Bible Baptist Church. The idea was conceived when we had the opportunity to visit the Philippines after a 31 year absence. We served as missionaries there in the mid-seventies until a serious illness prevented us from staying. As we have the opportunity now to re-focus our fervor and love for this ministry after all these years, we covet your prayers. The purpose of Heartbeat is to assist the nationals in their quest to carry out the Great Commission. This commission was first given to the church in Jerusalem, and has been passed down to every Scriptural, Bible-believing church since that time.
We have been involved in carrying out the Great Commission in full-time ministry since 1967. The Lord has allowed us to personally start ten churches and, through those churches, to help start several others. Church planting is the message of the Great Commission and needs to be carried out in “our Jerusalem’ and, at the same time, expanded to Judea, Samaria, and the uttermost parts of the earth. Since the inception of this ministry in 2008, we have been able to assist in ministries in the Philippines, Cambodia, and Haiti. As we expand this ministry beyond our local church, it is our desire to serve as Christ’s ambassadors in these and other countries, and to get other pastors and churches throughout the United States to help us help them to plant even more churches throughout the world.
Since 2008, we have been able to come alongside some of these church planters and assist them in their endeavors. One of the fruits of their labors and ours, is the Cornerstone Fundamental Baptist Mission (Pastor Randy Santos) started in April, 2010, in the growing city of Dinalupihan and has already started a second outreach. They now have their own building.
