Who We Are

UNITED SPHERE

Catalysts for Positive Change

United Sphere was formed in 2017 to bring hope, opportunity and purpose to those in need by empowering individuals to invest in future generations.  We accomplish this through building strong families, investing in quality education and mobilizing effective healthy churches.  By concentrating on family, education and spiritual growth, we help families live healthier lives, have sustainable income levels, educate children and have a clear understanding of God’s purpose for their lives.  We work to provide positive environments for children to learn, grow, dream, lead and give back to their community.  Our investment in upcoming generations will help provide bright futures filled with hope, opportunity and purpose!

VISION AND MISSION

Vision:

To have a positive impact on the trajectory of future generations – bringing hope, opportunity and purpose to those in need.

Mission:

To empower individuals to be catalysts for positive change.

OUR STRATEGY

Our strategy is quite simple.  We carefully search for indigenous global partners where God is at work using their ministry to have a significant positive impact on families, education and disciple making in their communities.   We work together to develop a partnership plan that will “add fuel” to their existing work in their community.  From that plan, United Sphere searches for volunteers and resources needed to have an even greater impact.  We value a “knowledge exchange” environment where everyone learns and instructs as we serve together.
