Kalamazoo Gospel Mission
Easy On Hold sponsors an annual musical event that supports the Kalamazoo Gospel Mission in its effort to provide for a majority of the homeless and hungry in our area. In addition, the mission provides education, counselling and job training. 97% of the Gospel Mission's funding comes from private sources.
"People come to a place where they really aren't sure that tomorrow is going to be any better than today was. The Gospel Mission likes to turn that around." —Pastor Michael Brown, President and CEO
Children's Hope Chest
Easy On Hold has a little brother through Children's Hope Chest whose mission is to "glorify God by releasing the potential of orphaned and vulnerable children and their communities through partnerships that cultivate holistic transformation and sustainability."
His name is Jefferson Gomez and he's seven years old. He is a student of the Operation Rescue School. Nearly half of Guatemala’s children under age five are chronically malnourished – one of the highest malnutrition rates in the world.
The Jericho Foundation
Julie Cook, Easy On Hold President, visited Bosnia as part of the Jericho Foundation's "Project Hope". Since that time the foundation has made many visits to Bosnia and has grown their mission of providing hope to the orphans in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH).
Driven by our calling to love our neighbors as ourselves; for Jericho, this means reaching across oceans to serve, equip and care for the children of BiH today in hope of restoring their tomorrow.
Youth For Christ
Growing up in Kalamazoo, Michigan, Easy On Hold President Julie Cook enjoyed her time meeting with friends as part of the local Youth For Christ organization. Today she serves on the Board of Directors for this important community group.
Every day at thousands of community centers, high schools, middle schools, juvenile institutions, coffee shops, and local hangouts, YFC staff and volunteers meet with young people who need Jesus. We are rural and urban and we are always about the message of Jesus.
