Right now, at this very moment, there are movements taking place. Spiritual movements, Jesus movements, movements orchestrated and empowered by God the Father to take His Gospel to a fast changing world. While the world changes, His Gospel never does and it is His Gospel that contains the power to transform a person as well as a city.

Movements are happening in places like Middle India, China, and other Asian regions. We ask, “why not here?” We desire to see a similar such movement here in the urban, suburban, and small town populations that make up the Midwest. Movements involve all kinds of people, the strong and the weak, from the most gifted to the willing vessel who simply says, “Here am I Lord, send me.” There are no stars, there are no simple formulas; there is our hero Jesus and His story.
