“…He has sent me to bind the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners… They will be called oaks of righteousness,… they will rebuild ruined cities…” Isaiah 61:1-4
The biblical model of city transformation shown in Isaiah 61:1-4 begins with our own personal healing and transformation. This scripture shows that the very ones who are healed are the ones who rebuild the cities.
When we value the broken and help them to become whole then cities are restored. Each person that is made whole goes out as an agent of change for the kingdom of God.
The Father Factor
In our research into how the body of Christ can help families, we were led to many articles with startling statistics on the effects of fatherlessness on our children and society. If we want to address the problems we face in this community we must address the issue of fatherlessness.
We have prepared a handout with some of these statistics so that we may all become aware that fathers matter. We are seeking a team of people to pursue this issue in our valley. Find Out Why Fathers Matter
We would like to get you connected to one of the many ministries in our area. Look through the following information and find the appropriate ministry for you.
