Who we are

Mission E4

Giving Kids Hope Since 2005

A passion that begins and ends with God


The Beginning

In 2005 Scott and Tanya Long were driven by faith and determination to make a difference in both Haiti and locally.  The passion Scott had for giving to those in need matched his larger-than-life personality.  In the memory of Scott, we will continue to follow God's path and give kids hope.

Our Mission

To give kids hope through empowering them to be their best selves.

      2. Our mission and those we seek to help will always take priority over our own personal comforts.
    • United in Purpose
      1. Our unity as a Christian ministry/community is always focused around our mission, and not simply an end unto itself.
      2. We seek to model to the rest of the body of Christ, that “Unity in Purpose” is possible cross-denominationally, cross-culturally, and cross-generationally.
