Martin Luther King:
“By opening our lives to God in Christ, we become new creatures. This experience which Jesus spoke of as the new birth is essential if we are to be transformed nonconformists. Only through an inner spiritual transformation do we gain the strength to fight vigorously the evils of the world in an humble and loving spirit.”

Opportunities to open up for Work Life Facilitator Training, and for the Lord to draw people to become certified.


In spite of COVID, the Lord compels us to move on! Our plan is: 
1    Add new classes for our two partner churches
2    Add more churches and facilitators
3    Enlist some of our graduates to be trained as Allies
4    For relationships to continue, propel, and encourage

Our annual report is up! (Recap of 2020 here: )
