Locally and internationally, we know people – people Jesus created and loves – are being tragically affected by HIV/AIDS.
Overlake is committed to equipping the LOCAL CHURCH to address HIV/AIDS within the given context of its community. Whether that’s equipping our church to address HIV/AIDS in King County or it’s helping a church in Africa or Asia do the same, we are responding to Christ’s call to care for those who suffer. We invite you to join us!

Get involved TODAY! Join one of our teams and help us do the practical work of reaching out to those impacted by HIV/AIDS.
CareTeams are groups of 4-7 volunteers who create a network of practical and emotional support to a “CarePartner” who is affected by the loneliness, isolation and stigma of HIV/AIDS. CareTeam members build supportive relationships with a CarePartner by listening, sharing coffee or a meal, giving rides to doctor appointments, visiting when sick, celebrating special occasions, and helping with household tasks.

If you are in the medical profession there are a variety of ways that you can uniquely bring your skills and gifts to bear through work with our partners. Contact Lynne Ellis-Gray//
OCC has partnered with Living Hope, a ministry in Cape Town, South Africa that focuses on addressing HIV/AIDS in slum communities where prevalence rates are among the highest in the world. Assisting in their efforts that include medical care, prevention work with kids, and poverty alleviation, we encounter Christ as we humbly serve alongside our brothers and sisters there.
OCC short-term teams also work with other partnerships in AIDS-affected areas like Kenya, Thailand, and Durban, South Africa. Contact Laura Abelarde // Also see what upcoming short term trips we have coming HERE.
