SBP Ministry


Validated in 2000 Threshold Ministries was founded by Cynthia Reynolds and is based in Santa Maria, California. Child sponsorship programs provide for poor and orphaned and abandoned children in Linjiang City, Jilin, China and the surrounding villages. Sponsorship provides education, food, clothing and other necessities. Eighty-five of our sponsored children have graduated from either university or technical school in the last nine years.

Our Gifts of Hope program enables us to provide emergency food, firewood for cooking and heating, warm winter clothing and chickens. These gifts benefit the needy families in the community we serve. Since 1997 more than 450 families have been touched by our sponsorship and Gifts of Hope programs. God is moving in China and He calls those of us involved with Threshold to show His love through our actions by giving these forgotten people in Linjiang, His hope!
