In 2001 we began to facilitate multi-church prayer gatherings and outreach ministry through organic, relational, local church networking. In 2007 we became more acutely aware that a mission field existed at our door step. The entire culture in which we lived had degenerated to the point that it was no longer necessary to sell the house and travel overseas to be missionaries. Concurrently, the foreign-born component of our local demographic had significantly increased, and needs comparable to those on some foreign fields needed to be met with the hope and power of the Gospel . Real, hurting people needed to both hear about and see Jesus; not just church as they may have known it.
