“In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” – Matthew 5:16

We believe God has placed our church in Washington, D.C. to make an impact in our neighborhood and our city. We believe that actively loving and serving those who are oppressed, marginalized, and under-resourced reflects the heart of God (Matthew 25:40). We see this as an opportunity to live out our faith (James 1:27), honor God (Proverbs 14:31), display the love of Christ (Matthew 5:16), and “act justly” (Micah 6:8).

Through our efforts and partnerships across the city, we create opportunities to resource people with the means, support, relationships, and services necessary to grow and thrive.

With a heart of humility, prayer, and strategy, we leverage our service and generosity to see the landscape of Washington D.C. changed for the better.

Our local engagement efforts focus on improving outcomes for children & families in (4) key areas: Health & Safety, Education, Economic Security, and Family Stability. We aim to improve the outcomes of children & families through a three-tier approach: helping, healing & transforming.
