Help Support the Smucker Family

$1,958 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 8 people in 49 months


You can help support our family as we serve in Atlanta.  We have been in inner city ministry since 2010.  

After five years of working at City of Refuge, Steve started a construction company with a primary goal of mentoring young men from our neighborhood. He plans to teach work skills that can be used to earn a living and hopes to train some men to manage their own work crews. He is also developing a discipleship program, and hopes to eventually buy a second house where the young men could live in an environment that supports their growth.

In 2016 another family moved into our neighborhood to help us start a church.  We are meeting weekly and also learning how to know and live well with our neighbors.

The more we love our neighbors, the more opportunities we see. We are trusting God to provide resources for the areas of ministry He must wants us to serve.

Our house was vandalized before we moved into it. Due to significant water damage throughout the house, the house became very moldy. Consequently, Christy and the boys have dealt with extensive health issues.

We spent most of 2016 addressing water drainage issues and remediating the house as we could. We are so thankful that God provided for us and that our health has been steadily improving since addressing the mold.

We recently found out that we have more water and mold issues to deal with in the crawl space. It has been a long process and we are spent.

Additionally, we recently discovered that the deed to our house was not properly registered and over the past six years we have incurred $9,000 in back payment.

If it weren't for knowing God as a good father and faithful provider, we would be completely overwhelmed. Yet, we know that He is good. He is faithful. And we trust Him.

From time to time we've been blessed to have a mother's helper stay with us for a week or two. It has helped our whole family tremendously. They normally help with childcare, cooking for the family and our special diets as well as preparing food that can be used when we host guests and neighbors, cleaning this loved but neglected home of ours, preparing beds for overnight guests. If you would like to help support someone coming by paying for travel or helping to support her while she serves, please note that with your donation.

Both of our vehicles are in need of significant repairs. For the van it's a catalytic converter (for the third time in two months) and the suspension. The truck needs to have its shocks replaced and Steve has no air conditioning. Because the van has well over 200,000 miles, we also know we may need to replace it before long.
