Ministries move our hearts to a greater love, God’s love, and thereby become our community’s human expression of the reign of God in our unique time and setting. We minister because we want to become more like Christ and to put ourselves in grace’s way (Matthew 25: 31-46). Our primary goal is to invite people into our ministries and programs which provide bridges and places of connection for people in the inner city and the surrounding suburbs. It is within authentic human relationships, especially with persons who are the most vulnerable, that the transformation of our hearts, households and our neighborhoods is possible. Through faithful commitment to relationships, we seek to support persons to discover new found power and hope within themselves and their communities as a whole. Our ministries and programs are centered on mutual relationships creating a paradigm where everyone gives and everyone receives. The result is a shared space where one can enter and share both their gifts and their needs.
