To reveal the love of Christ by being Incarnational, Indigenous, and Intentional in what we say, what we do, and how we live and serve the community.
We envision a People of interconnected communities where people of different incomes, ethnicities, races and backgrounds live with dignity and fulfillment. We envision communities that encourage all residents, especially disenfranchised residents, to participate in civic processes that define the physical, economic, educational and cultural characteristics that distinguish these communities. We see a Columbus as a place where all people build assets and realize the benefits of a healthy economy which provides full employment at good wages, stable housing at affordable prices, and strong public supports for human needs. We see a community development movement led by a diverse and democratic leadership that is at the forefront, in both substance and process, when determining public policy and development priorities that serve the long-term interests of communities. We envision government and the private sector working in partnership with the community development movement to achieve excellence in the projects we undertake.
