OUR STORY

Blessing Bag Ministry, Inc. was officially formed on February 1, 2016 as a registered 501c3 faith-based nonprofit charity by founder & volunteer CEO Christy Konnick of Jonesborough, Tennessee.  Driven by immense faith and the desire to serve the Lord, this passion became the guiding force behind this small yet powerful compassion ministry. 
​​
She relied on her strong background in accounting and financial management, accompanied with a deep love for the Lord, to create the Blessing Bag Ministry as a free service to the community while sharing the Word of God. By taking the concept of "blessing bags" and expanding on what many churches do to support the homeless within their ministry,  she was determined to magnify the gift of hygiene bags distributed to the homeless for just a fraction of the cost.

Miraculously, within days of the ministry taking root, the Lord directed specific individuals and buisnesses our direction that were willing and eager to assist in the goals setforth by Blessing Bag Ministry which, in turn, became the catalyst for an outpouring of support and community exposure.
Within one year of operations, the vision of going international came to fruition with the help of other organizations. Blessing Bags made their way overseas in various mission trips sponsored by a church in Nashville, TN who were recipients of the bags. Additionally, thanks to the partnership with Harvest of Israel, bags are routinely shipped overseas to the Israel where any nationality, whether Jewish or Muslim, can receive a bag with the Gospel Plan of Salvation. 


BLESSING BAGS MULTIPLIED
Thanks to the divine guidance of the Lord and many hours of research, we were successful in locating several wholesale bulk supply companies that were willing to sell the hygiene supplies for pennies on the dollar. Additionally, each supplier has graciously and permanently removed all shipping costs for our freight orders. 

Because of this blessing bestowed to us, we are able to assemble a Summer Blessing Bag for the low cost of $3.00/bag and the Winter Bags for $4.50. Orders of bulk quantities not only lowers our overall costs  but also allows us to mass produce our Blessing Bags on a large scale.  

Zero overhead expenses, low bulk wholesale supply cost,  and the use of willing volunteers enables the Blessing Bag Ministry to apply the contributions directly to the purchase and production of hygiene supplies that fill each and every bag. By design, not a single penny received goes back into the pock of the founder. Blessing Bags are NEVER sold; they are given to all free of charge.  

As the Lord provides the funds, each and every request for bags are filled and sent with a divine prayer that the contents will plant the seed for Lord to work in the lives of each recipient. It is truly evident how the Lord has paved a way to touch countless lives through this compassion ministry.
