Our Long-Term Vision
Our team is currently working to acquire and renovate an existing campus designed for long-term housing and training. Once it’s ready, we will invite several demographics, including young adults aging out of foster care and individuals who have completed a recovery program to temporarily live on the property, where we will teach them skilled trades while also walking them through Christian, Kingdom-centered curriculums. Our discipleship programs aim to build self-worth and identity, and residents will have opportunities to practice the trades they are learning by serving low-income families in the area. Upon completing our program, we want residents to leave our ministry equipped with trade knowledge and skills as well as an awareness of their inherent value in the Kingdom of God. Those who are seeking meaningful employment will have an opportunity to join our paid workforce and continue building affordable housing in their own communities.
Although the residential program is reserved to specific demographics, the skilled trade classes will also be open to any members of the community interested in learning or getting qualified in a trade. For our North Carolina pilot program, we hope to open our doors in 2025, creating a network and framework that can continue expanding into new demographics and locations.
Two years ago, the Father told us: It’s time to bring My children home. We have come to associate those words with a shining porch light, which says that no matter how late, no matter how dark, and no matter how long you’ve been away—somebody is waiting for you to return home. We seek to bring hope to the hopeless, and light to the darkness. We want every son and daughter to know that, no matter their circumstances, the Father is saying: “My light is on. Come home.” We are calling all churches, organizations, leaders, and individuals to come together and help us shine the light. Until every prodigal comes home.
