To bring HOPE by Helping Other People Excel in purposeful living.
To fight food insecurity by serving and caring for local families in need with respect, kindness, love, and compassion.
Tricia Heng, along with her husband, Pete, founded A Place In Time Christian Ministries because they believed every person has their own place in time to meet God and discover their Purpose. Tricia and Pete defined the founding mission of the ministry as helping others excel in purposeful living and this was the driving force behind the establishment of this charity. They both recognized the authority of God in the establishment of the mission and realized that they could be shepherds serving under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. Their passion and goal in establishing the mission was to equip people to fulfill their life purpose.
Tricia passed away in the year 2015 with peace in her heart. She reached out relentlessly to help others excel in purposeful living up until the very last days of her life. She lived out the great commission in real and practical ways. Read Tricia’s devotional here. Find out more about Tricia and her legacy: DOWNLOAD THE ARTICLE.
