At Ryan & Rose, one of our core values is: Give Back.
One of the main ways we give back is through donations to several organizations, including Engage Memphis (a ministry fund from Fellowship Memphis).
Fellowship Memphis is Lindsey and Bret’s home church here in Memphis, TN. Giving back has always been at the core of Ryan & Rose, and along with that is a heart for Memphis and work to support and benefit the local community.
Fellowship Memphis is deeply involved in the community and partners with other churches and organizations in the area to serve the greater Memphis community. In order to help support these different missions, the Engage Fund was created.
We’ve been supporting Engage Memphis since day one of Ryan & Rose, giving $1 from every Cutie Clip sale:
We asked Fellowship Memphis Pastor, John Bryson, to answer a few questions about Engage Memphis and the many ways their funds and efforts are distributed.
What is Engage Memphis?
Engage Memphis was established to fund several initiatives in our city (Memphis, TN) and around the world that align with our values. I like to think about it as a “mutual fund of goodness.”
What Does Engage Memphis Fund?
In its almost ten years, Engage has served immediate benevolence needs in our church and city, funded other ministry in our city that serve kids with after-school ministry, has helped Campus Outreach college students go and serve globally, supported kids in Honduras with medical and educational needs along with helping young men and women get ministry training. Some of Engage’s funding has been one time gifts, some has been multi-year investments.
Fellowship Memphis has had a passion to be a multi-ethnic church since its inception and also a passion to stand for Biblical justice. By God’s grace, today we stand together as a multi-racial, multicultural, multi-generational family that seeks to make much of Jesus.
How Has Ryan & Rose Joined in the Mission of Engage Memphis?
We are grateful for everyone’s contributions to our church and Engage including Bret and Lindsey’s. Our people coming together to do things that serve the marginalized and oppressed and make much of Jesus is beautiful.
We also had a chance to sit down with Pastor Bryson last fall and talk at length about Engage Memphis and the work of Fellowship Memphis:
Memphis has always been at the heart of Ryan & Rose since we are based here in the 901. To date, we’ve given more than $280,000 to support organizations and funds like Engage Memphis.
We believe it’s our job to partner and join with incredible organizations in spreading the hope of Jesus and building stronger communities. Since that first day we began selling Cutie Clips and giving to Engage Memphis we continue to keep “giving back” at the forefront of what we do here at Ryan & Rose.
