This is a joyous milestone because it underscores the tremendous commitment of this community to care for its fragile citizens under the Rowan Helping Ministries’ banner. Over the years, thousands of volunteers, donors and other supporters have stepped forward to “put God’s love into action” by providing shelter, meals, financial assistance and other essential services to those who struggle to make ends meet.


We want to involve as many of you as possible in our 30th anniversary celebrations over the coming months. Our special anniversary activities and projects are kicking off this month with a new video and social media project called “Rowan Helping Memories”. We want YOU to share with the community your special memories related to Rowan Helping Ministries.

Sixteen-year- old Michael Childress of Salisbury

has found a way to combine two of his passions – playing golf and helping others.


The rising star on the junior amateur circuit is asking fans to pledge donations for each birdie he makes during his tournament season. Donations will be used to help low-income neighbors served through assistance programs at Rowan Helping Ministries.


View Michael’s video to learn why he wants to help his neighbors in need as he works to take his golf game to new heights. Click here to view


Then go to Leadership Links to view Michael’s donation website and support his cause. You can make a one-time donation or you can donate for each birdie he makes during the fall tournament season.



Join us on our Facebook page this summer as we follow Michael’s quest to rise in the amateur rankings, birdie by birdie.
