noun prod·uct \ˈprä-(ˌ)dəkt\
Simple Definition of product
What does it mean to be a <Product of Makarios>? We are not dealing with commodities, objects to be bought and sold. We are dealing with people, created in the image of God, His workmanship, crafted by His hand to walk in good works that He prepared ahead of time for each one to walk in (Ephesians 2:10). We aren't talking about a product, packaged for maximum appeal and marketed for maximum success, but a person, empowered by the knowledge of Christ's love for them, unleashed to their full potential, set forth for kingdom building - one household, family, community at a time.
What are we striving for that the process of being a part of Makarios would result in for our students and their families? How does the environment of Makarios shape the future for those we have been entrusted to for a season? These are some of the things that we intentionally strive for as a result:
As an organization dedicated to meeting the spiritual, physical, emotional, and intellectual needs of impoverished people, we are continually striving to improve, evaluate and discern the imprint that we are leaving on those who serve with us and those we serve. With sincere and authentic hearts we commit to being intentional about creating an environment that produces servant hearted leaders that love the Lord, the world around them, and who ultimately hold the key to making an eternal difference in their spheres of influence. We ask for your prayers in this process.
