Here's what we're doing to bring the Kingdom to Earth!

The Kids’/Family Initiative’s mission is to intersect our lives with those of kids & parents, so that ultimately we might meet our VISION, that they may intersect their lives with God and with his family; transforming their lives, their futures, and through them, the world
The Kids’/Family Initiative is founded on relationships with kids, and over time, with their parent(s). We employ a variety of strategies, including Story-time, SurpriseBox, Community Trips, Community Service, Game Time, Playground Activities, Bible School, Educational Play, Family Parties, School-Assist & After-School Care, Jesus-Time. Our goals are to lead our kids/families to better understand and to live out their lives in America, and ultimately, to lead them to God through Jesus Christ.
Nomadic Thrift - A mobile thrift store.
Nomadic Thrift was created as a solution to solve a need which many refugees have. Through a mobile thrift store, refugees who rarely leave their houses are now able to be supplied with good clothes at an affordable price. No matter where you are from, you are welcome here!
One of the biggest needs of the resettled peoples in Clarkston is the necessity to learn English. Without knowing the primary language of America, their everyday activities become next to impossible. We at Envision Atlanta recognize this need, and therefore have established an ESL (English as a Second Language) initiative in our organization. We currently do "one on one" in home English classes, and group classes held at our facilities. By offering ESL, it is our hope that we not only teach them English, but that we meet another of their greatest desires- a friendship in a land not their own. Our teachers are able to sit in their homes and learn their story, and it is not long before a friendship has formed. This is a blessing not only for the student, but for the teacher as well. Most of all, we want to be Christ to all those He gives us the privilege of getting to know. While we do this, we claim 1 Peter 3:15 over our lives, " but in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have."
Our church planting team is working with many people in the community to set up house churches. At this point we have nine established house churches and around twelve emerging house churches.
