Who We Are...
From urban Cleveland, through the farmlands and small-town rural Ohio, to the country roads of beautiful West Virginia, and the unbridled spirit of Kentucky, we come together as one to BE Christ's love, DO His work and GO into the world proclaiming his good news.
When we think of sharing the Good News about hope in Jesus, God's love and forgiveness, and life in God's spirit we are talking about a way of being. When we draw close to God, God draws close to us and we can be who we truly are in Christ. When we think of discipleship, it is about allowing our lives to be formed in the process of following Jesus, with our whole person and community, engaging in God's mission and presence already present, and inviting others to do the same.
When we think of an art form discovered in the journey of following Jesus and the accountability of community, we are thinking of leadership. Christ-following leaders are often formed along the way and always in process and only ever arrive in further depths and variety of growing in grace and transforming relationships with God and others
