We devote ourselves to three broad initiatives:

•Faith Community – We desire to be a place where people are ministered to spiritually. We don’t want religious people but rather men and women in a lifelong love relationship with Jesus Christ.

•The Transformation Pipeline – Starting with Baby University, a program for parents of children up to 3, we hope to move the children of our area through high-quality pre-school, K – 12, and then into a college. We are committed to the belief that education is the 2nd greatest power in the universe!

•Infrastructure – Working with many community partners we are removing bad housing, rehabbing other properties, and planting gardens wherever possible. A vision for our area is to create desirable housing and commercial properties. We hope to create jobs for our people through these efforts. Ultimately, we hope to see a 'Family Friendly Village' planted and grown in what we call the South Toledo Kids Zone."
