In a world wrought with suffering caused by natural disasters and man-made violence, hunger and malnutrition, disease and injuries, lack of sustainability and lack of development - the need for help and hope is deep. 


IDES exists to meet physical and spiritual needs of suffering people throughout the world in the name of Jesus Christ.


Established in 1973 under the leadership of Milton Bates, IDES has grown a network of mission partners from within the Christian Church/Church of Christ brotherhood in over 100 different countries and the United States, serving through the local churches during times of crisis and development.
Kokomo Rescue
 Kokomo Rescue Mission exists to proclaim the Good News and demonstrate the compassion of Jesus Christ to the homeless, hungry and hurting in North Central Indiana.
Vision Statement:
The vision of Kokomo Rescue Mission is to see the homeless, hungry and hurting achieve wholeness through its Christ-centered programs and services.
An Apostles Build brings together churches to build a house in partnership with Habitat and a partner family. Churches provide funding, volunteers, and lots of prayer. Habitat selects the partner family, building lot, and provides construction oversight. Apostles Build enables churches to become involved in the ministry of Habitat and impact their community in a new way.
