Who We Are

Our Vision:

A city of peace and prosperity

Our vision statement is taken from Jeremiah 29:7. Peace in this sense is more than “getting along.” It represents Shalom, which means a full-flourishing or holistic approach to our ministry of community restoration and development. This includes wholeness relating to spiritual, emotional, educational, economic and physical health.

To accomplish this vision we believe our Mission is:

Empowering youth to reach their full potential

Our Values:

Biblical Renewal in our Neighborhood: The Bible calls us to seek the holistic restoration of our community in the areas of social justice, education, and family so that all may know spiritual, emotional, economic, and physical health.

Helping people become followers of Jesus: Through spoken word and intentional actions we strive to help people encounter Jesus Christ.  Jesus is the key to true transformation and we believe that as He impacts hearts and minds, the community is impacted at every level.

Service & Empowerment: We work hard to build relationships through our various ministries, knowing that through those relationships we can serve the needs of our neighbors and help them discover their gifts, abilities and worth.  It is through this that we strive to empower people to make powerful changes in their lives through the help of Jesus Christ.
