Christopher and Wendy believe deeply in the true way to impact our communities and the world for Christ is by building relationships. They believe by building deep and meaningful relationships with the community they can truly show Christ. It is not about being perfect; it is about being open, loving, and kind to show and impact people with Christ. We all fall short and we all need Jesus in our lives to bring us to the Father.
“But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace to me was not without effect. No, I worked harder than all of them—yet not I, but the grace of God that was with me.” 1 Corinthians 15:10
