Help Relieve Poverty and Make Disciples – Pray for Vapor

Tagline: “Life’s a vapor. Don’t spend yours on the sidelines.”

Vision Statement: We exist to glorify Christ by advancing the gospel and serving the poor.

Mission Statement: We aim to establish sustainable centers for alleviating poverty and multiplying disciples in third-world environments.

What They Do: You can break Vapor’s ministry activity down into three categories:

  1. Multiplying Disciples – sports leagues, community outreach, staff development, and local faith partners
  2. Alleviating Poverty – clean water, quality education, improved health, and accessible food
  3. Sustainable Centers – indigenous leadership, microbusinesses, local engagement

Where They Are: Vapor currently has five centers in Kenya, Togo, and Haiti. These are funded in part by the profits of Vapor’s thrift stores in the United States, where Vapor is based.

Happening Now: Today through Wednesday, Vapor is asking you to pray for them in a few specific ways. You can learn more about their three-day prayer initiative as well as download a copy of the initiative’s 2015 prayer guide by going to this page.

Get Involved: Aside from joining in to pray for them over the next three days (and beyond), Vapor offers numerous ways you can engage with them in the gospel work they are doing in poor communities all over the world: give monthly, sponsor a child, go on a trip with them, become an intern, volunteer, request a speaker, or host a Vapor dinner. Their website offers more details about how you can get involved.

Vapor is one of our Counter Culture ministry partners. As they might say it, don’t stay on the sidelines…

Radical exists to equip Christians to be on mission.


That means that the people with the most urgent spiritual and physical needs on the planet are receiving the least amount of support. Together we can change that!
