At Avenue Church we believe in supporting those who work tirelessly to bring the love of Jesus to communities and countries around the world. One of the organizations who we actively support is Leket Israel. Leket Israel is the largest food bank in Israel, and has been a leader and an expert in food rescue nationwide since 2003. The organization sources, collects and redistributes fresh, perishable, quality food, which would otherwise be considered waste, from farms, hotels, military bases and catering halls. This is done in an effort to aid the quarter of the country’s population that lives below the poverty line. Leket works with 195 non-profits throughout the country to provide nutritious food to over 175,000 Israelis weekly. Last year alone, Leket collected and delivered over 30 million pounds of fresh, healthy food for the needy.

Elmer and Sherry Komant are church planters who have been working on the continent of Africa since 1980. During their first seven years in Africa, the Komants helped establish branch churches birthed from the Livingstone and Lusaka city churches and left them all in the capable hands of Zambian pastors. They spent the next 10 fruitful years at Mombasa Pentecostal Church in Kenya, nationalized that work, and moved on to the challenge of planting Christian Life Assembly in war ravaged Rwanda. Fourteen years later this thriving, multi faceted city ministry in Kigali and it's three branch churches is effectively proclaiming the Gospel under national leadership. Following the June 2012 handing over ceremony, Elmer and Sherry devoted themselves to preparation for obeying God's call to the nation of Burundi.
