Giving a voice to those without a voice.
Orphans, widows, the poor, the oppressed, the trafficked, the immigrant, the marginalized. To follow Christ, we must learn to do right, seek justice, defend, take up the cause, and plead for The Vulnerable. (Isaiah 1:17)
The Next Generation
Training and developing gospel bearers for the next generation.
We must leave a legacy in the hands of those who come behind us. Through theological education, college ministry, global evangelization, we are training leaders who will take the baton of gospel and carry it forth into the Next Generation.
The Local Church
Partnering with & investing in Gods expression of hope in the world.
Jesus is the hope of the world and the local church is the expression of his hope in the world. We partner with new and existing churches by supporting pastoral training, partnering with churches in outreach, and helping launch new congregations.
Reaching the world by becoming the heart of the city.
God is using cities to build his church worldwide. We want to partner with God in seeking the shalom of Colorado Springs by building relationships with local organizations, ministries, and churches, and supporting missionaries in strategic cities across the world.
