Purpose of experience: We will be headquartered in Nakuru, Kenya. Not only is that an area of great need, but also an area where results are sustainable. We will work with R.O.C.K. Bridge Ministries and the Presbyterian Church of East Africa, Nakuru West Parish. We have been working with them for over 15 years.

It is all about relationships. It is having the time to sit across from our Kenyan brothers and sisters in Christ and realize that distance is only as great as we make it.
— Nancy Turner, 2016 participant

Christ-centered outreach is rooted in the understanding that we are all broken, the materially and non-materially poor, and in need of being restored to relationship with God. From this mission perspective, we come alongside of at-risk people to affirm the gifts God has given and help empower them for what God has lovingly designed them to be. We are more about people than programs, development instead of dependence, and respectfully upholding the diversity of all people.

We follow Christ's call primarily through a mission focus on education because we believe empowering others through development and long-term relationships is vital to eradicating poverty. Still, we strive to be engaged with meeting housing and emergency relief needs.
