OUR MISSION: Uniting people to restore communities by mobilizing Christ-followers to be agents of compassion, justice and love.

At COMMUNITY, we are passionate about restoring God’s dream for the world. Community 4:12 unites people to restore communities by mobilizing Christ-followers to be agents of compassion, justice, and love. We make a long-term commitment to a community and focus on meeting immediate needs, building relationships and developing people, and addressing systemic issues such as educational opportunities, home ownership and business/community development. Our name comes from Ecclesiastes 4:12: Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken. By uniting with others across cultural, racial and economic divides, we learn and grow and better reflect the heart of Jesus.
