Mission Focus Chart v2We live in a beautiful but broken world.  Because we believe anything’s possible, we seek to help people flourish as God intends.  Our global partners serve in four overlapping areas:  Discipleship and Church Planting; Justice and Restoration; Relief and Development; and Schools and Education Systems.

Through our partnerships and hands-on experiences, we’re called to learn more about the global challenges in our time, how God IS bringing hope–and how you can be part of God’s plan.
