Our vision is to see lives and communities transformed by the power of God. In addition, our mission is unique compared to many other organizations around the country. Our mission is to bring people together to help the oppressed. We see ourselves as a catalyst, who brings churches, businesses and schools together to serve oppressed people around the world.
