Living out our Christian Faith

Purpose: To live out our Christian faith through collaboration with local and global neighbors. We build relationships that value and empower all people to create positive change through God's love.

Keys to Ministry: With the presence of the Holy Spirit in all of our work, and loving others as Jesus taught in Mathew 25, we work in the following areas: housing, food, clothing, poverty, health care, education, incarceration, violence, immigration, and clean water.  Collaboration with other faith based groups and community organizations is a priority in our ministry.

Responsibilities: 1) Conduct periodic reviews of all current areas of ministry;  2) Seek and evaluate needs of new areas of ministry and engage when needed;  3) Support ministry groups as needed;  4) Help to recruit ministry team members as needs arise.
