Community & Economic Development
Bringing hope to communities
18 "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me because he has anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor;
he has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind,
to set at liberty those that are broken, 19 to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord"
Relationship building is key to community development.
Broken relationships cause poverty which prevent access to education, resources, equal-rights, and above all, social relationships that can aid them in need.
Forming a relationship with God through the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ breaks the yoke of poverty. When people grow in a God-centered relationship and form genuine relationships with individuals and communites, they can gradually dismantle the poverty cycle and experience productive and flourishing lives.
They can walk in liberty!
We pray with communities to assist them with both natural and spiritural needs. We help them identify problems, find manageable solutions and mobilize outside resources as a supplement to solutions. Above all, we seek opportunities to share the life-changing gospel of Jesus Christ. His truth and power bring hope and healing to the nations.
