Here's what we're doing to bring the Kingdom to Earth!
Renew the City - Atlanta
Renew the City is a practical way so showing "Your Kingdom come, Your will be done" to our neighbors and to those that we work with. This years focus in Atlanta will be Clarkston. Click here see photos from 2017. We got to clean up trash, help clean up a park and a community center!
Job Creation and Training
Did you know that gangs largely exist because the family is not functioning as it should? Gangs create what is called a "false family". Due to the lack of jobs for refugees parents are forced to take jobs that require them to be away from their families. This creates a void that the gangs attempt to fill. Our part of the solution? Create jobs. Out of the jobs we can provide training and discipleship to help ensure healthy families.
*Window cleaning, job creation, and job training are done through partner companies in the local community.
Our own Angela Kirk is working hard at starting up ESL classes. She is pushing to have an American Culture Taster as an introduction to English!
Dan Kirk heads up our church planting team and is working with many people in the community to set up house churches. His team has also had the opportunity to work with Ethiopian church leaders in Clarkston to aid them in the establishment of a new church!
