We see our home as a place to love the lost and disciple the found.
Shorter Term Rescue (Matt. 25:35): Sometimes folks aren’t ready to go all-in with Jesus, but do need a place to stay.We see hosting them in our home as an opportunity to display God’s goodness and provide them with a healthy environment where they can heal and grow.
This has mostly looked like foster care, but we've also had the privilege of hosting many folks on their journey out of addiction and life on the streets and into health and wholeness. Kansas City, Kansas currently has a huge chasm for folks who have nowhere to go after they make it through rehab but have to be clean for three months before they can qualify for a halfway house. We believe that healing from addiction happens most effectively in a healthy Jesus-centered community.
Longer Term Discipleship (Matt. 28:19-20): We have opened our home to those who want to get well, and live in community on mission while being discipled.We believe that the most effective discipleship happens in the context of a community that is on a mission to bring God’s love to the least and the lost.
Folks who accept this challenge are expected to submit their lives to Jesus, get a local job as their primary mission field, to participate in daily community Bible study, do chores, and to join us on our mission to bring the love of God to our neighborhood.
The Daily (Acts 2:42-47): Every morning we gather in our home as a community to share “Nugs” (nuggets of truth that God is teaching us) and pray.The days are filled with going out on mission, sitting at the feet of Jesus, working jobs, and connecting with God and each other.The evenings are usually filled with gatherings to pray, worship, and fellowship.
