The empowerment model of serving is difficult and complex for the server, but vital for sustainable change in a community. But if we are insisting those we serve be part of the solution, it requires us to listen. It means breaking the habit of doing for others rather than doing things together; developing the leadership, skills, talents, and other assets already in place. As we walk together toward righteousness and justice, negating dependency on institutions and organizations, restoration of dignity and hope will arise.
As the community and its people are empowered and redeemed, transformed and restored, they then walk in freedom towards their future and destiny to be who God created them to be.
Everything we do has a Christ-centered focus bathed in prayer in an atmosphere of excellence and an awareness of our community impact.
Jesus, His life, death and resurrection and the way He lived His life, serving and loving the poor, outcast, orphan, and stranger serve as the heart beat of our ministry. We believe that the best way to change our neighborhood is to be like Jesus in every way: to live the way He did, serve the way He served, and give our lives to the work of God’s kingdom.
It is Jesus' love that changes everything and enables us to truly love each other.
Relationships level the playing field between individuals, so that journey out of poverty becomes an effort shouldered together instead of walked alone.
Authentic relationships are built by spending intentional time together. When we begin to really know each other and share our lives, we begin to share in the joys and celebrations, but also in the suffering and pain. If through these relationships we can learn to communicate with more empathy, we can get to the heart of the real problems and begin to work on real solutions. The stigmatism of ‘us and them’ morphs into ‘we and ours’ as intentional friendships
The result of investing in these authentic relationships is living out Jesus’ command to love our neighbors as ourselves.
Community engagement comes when we are able to effectively cast vision and encourage each other to set aside differences as we work together in unity and purpose toward a common goal.
We gather to the table all of the talents and gifts of the body of Christ, internal neighborhood leadership, and other entities who accept the empowerment model and benefit those we serve. We educate, collaborate, and activate people for compassion ministry and celebrate all that is being accomplished in His Kingdom.
Breaking the multi-generational cycle of poverty will take the power of God
and the passionate efforts
of His people.
ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN
The Kingdom is the renewal of the whole world through the entrance of supernatural forces. As things are brought back to Christ's rule and authority, they are restored to health, beauty and freedom.
Poverty is more than just a lack of physical resources, such as money or housing,
and to fight it requires a multifaceted,
fluid, and strategic plan of action.
Poverty is systemic and deeply rooted in a multitude of issues, impacting every
part of who we are. We provide a
network of people, places, activities,
and tools to assist those who aspire. Alleviating poverty requires a strategic,
yet adaptable plan, and a
of time and resources.
There are no cookie cutter answers. Each person has a unique story and experiences that must be figured into the healing process.
