Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We work with the local community to identify needs. In the Village of Lockland, and surrounding communities, residents, churches and governments have identified the following needs: jobs, training for jobs, GED/High School Equivalency, medical needs, English training, financial literacy. We leverage various curriculum solutions to address these needs, and work with volunteers to deliver the curriculum course materials. We approach the needs of individuals and communities with a view point towards wholistic solutions - solutions that not only address the need but also address the whole person, physically, mentally, spiritually, Biblically, and transformatively.

Charting impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

Our mission is to help transform individuals, households, neighborhoods and communities by a heart transformation through sharing the life-giving message of Jesus Christ. Metanoia means afterthought, from meta meaning "after" or "beyond" and nous meaning "mind". In Classical Greek metanoia meant changing one's mind about someone or something. Biblically, metanoia is used to refer to the change of mind/heart which is brought about in repentance. Another word used in conjunction with the definition of metanoia is transformation. Thus metanoia is the changing, transformation, of ones mind, or heart, that results in a change, or transformation, of lifestyle. You might say that a transformation of lifestyle is evidence of a transformed mind and heart. When hearts are transformed families, whole neighborhoods and communities are impacted for the good and betterment of each. We are not a "relief" organization. We are a nonprofit that focuses on betterment and development.

We employ the Urban Community Health Evangelism strategy and core values as well as the strategies and vallues explained in the book "When Helping Hurts" to the realization of our mission and all of our activities. We do this in a variety of ways. At times we evidence this through the delivering of literacy and equipping courses such as Faith & Finances or English as a Second Language Classes. Other times we come alongside of partnering organizations to help enable their engagement in a community. We also provide training opportunities for other organizations and churches in order to help equip their teams in wholistic ministry and service.

Our organization partners with volunteers to accomplish our mission and activities.

Many organizations are focused on numbers. We are focused on individuals. We identify progress by those who volunteer with us, and by those who join in with our classes. We also identify progress by the venues within communities we are welcomed where we are crossing cultural and social barriers.

In 2019 .... - 4 community prayer walks - Two periods of Faith & Finances classes - One period of one on one computer training courses - 1 neighborhood block party - 1 community block party - Engagement with 3 after school programs
