Looking Ahead

Considering the current circumstances surrounding the COVID 19 virus, we have shifted all of our attention to the front lines of the churches’ efforts to love and care for the poor, the orphan, and the widow.

We remain committed to leadership development, job and life skill training, STEAM programming for our cities’ youth, on-the-job retail training in our Thrift Store, education through the Antioch Initiative, participation in the Global Leadership Summit, and more. While these efforts take a backseat to our Crisis response, we want to assure you that we will faithfully return to “business as usual” as the Lord allows.

We genuinely believe this is an incredible opportunity to show the world and the lost what the love and HOPE of Christ in action looks like and to see many begin their journey toward a saving relationship in Jesus through His church.
