Learn stories of hope. Engage with God’s heart for the left behind in Haiti and Cambodia. Attend the Gathering.

Join us on November 7th from 6-8 pm at Brew Merchant in Holland, Michigan. This is a free event. Please RSVP below by November 1st.


We believe true education helps students discover who they are in Christ and what they were created to do.


We create belonging in our schools by being intentional about how we build and steward relationships with our students. From greeting students at the door to learning their stories to sharing meals, we help over 440 students find community and purpose in our schools.


We cast vision for how our staff and students can play a role in God’s restoration story. A team of volunteers collaborate with our indigenous staff members to create character-based Bible curriculum that helps point our students to Jesus by “learning to do right” (Isaiah 1:17). Each week our students study God’s word and discover how they were uniquely created to make a difference in their homes, community, and in the world.


We equip and empower our indigenous staff to lead school operations and educate our students. Nobody knows the culture and challenges our students face better than adults who have grown up in the community. We collaborate with nearly 50 members of the local community to serve our students and meet their needs.
