Showing God's love in practical ways

We are on a mission of becoming living proof of God's love, one person at a time. When we surrender our lives to that mission, we see each moment as an opportunity to bridge the gaps caused by unmet needs and brokenness all around us. We believe each of us has a gifts to offer as a demonstration of God's love to the world.
