We root our mission in the scriptural calling of shalom, love of neighbor, and our hope for God's final consummation of the whole creation.

We accomplish our mission by walking alongside our neighbors, developing innovative solutions that address barriers to thriving; seeking peace, justice, and prosperity in the communities that we share.
