This  week I got to spend a couple hours with about 25 alcoholics (most of  them drunk) talking about life and Jesus. It was powerful and I believe  that is what church was meant to look like. If you’re sitting in class  trying to learn how to plant churches or counting on your members to  just show up and hear you on Sunday, you’re sitting with the wrong  people. I invite you to join us and be the body of Christ. Being  present, bringing relief, restoring hope, developing ways to do good.  #thecirclestory  brad@thecirclestory.com

Which comes first?

Which is most important? We are always looking for opportunities to position for discipleship. Galatians 6:9-10a  “And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone…” We believe that they are interdependent; particularly when you are walking within a vulnerable community group.

Press release: Posting this here to mark this event and the launch of this new site.

Renaming Announcement: "We are in the process of rebranding and renaming the jewelry/beadwork our women's group makes. In an effort to bring our work on the ground under one mission, we have decided to rename "Girls With Vision" to "Tazama Nia" (Kiswahili) "looking ahead with anticipation"; it still carries the same meaning. Our vision and the work all remain the same. We are pulling all of our community development efforts in Kenya under one umbrella, name and vision."
