global outreach

 

We aim to connect by meeting people where they are and building relationships around their needs and circumstances. We build bridges on a local and international level and reach out in practical ways. 

 

As followers of Jesus, we are deeply committed to showing God’s love by meeting needs in the lives of others that they may not be able to meet on their own.
