Urgent Projects



Our first thought regarding poverty is lacking material possessions.  

Poverty's root cause is relational.

Broken relationships with God, self, others and creation.  

"the goal is to restore people to experiencing humanness in the way that God intended." Excerpt From: "When Helping Hurts."  Moody Publishers, 2012
