Why Do We Love The Mission?

“The reason I love working here is without a doubt the people, both those we serve and serve with. Everyone here is so engaging and wholehearted. There is nothing quite like being welcomed to such an amazing community dedicated to such an inspiring purpose.”
Kenneth
“I love working for the Mission because it challenges me like no other career could, which has resulted in my growth in faith and as a person. It’s helped me to understand what loving your neighbor really looks like.”
Roel
“I love working at the Mission because I have the opportunity daily to share the love and truth of Jesus with those whom society has rejected, ignored and often deemed beyond redemption. I get to pursue abundant life in practical ways with people, and I love it!”
