All proceeds from the race will go to the Stop Hunger Now Packaging event sponsored by the Triad Rotary Club and River Landing on Saturday, June 14th at River Landing.

Reflection - Small Things: Big Difference

This week, Mike spoke about small things that make a big difference.  Thanks to a kind friend at work, I was reminded that no matter how tangentially related the "small things" may be to the "big difference", I am making an impact on our organization, our employees, and our patients.  More importantly, the small things that I do every day are making a big difference in God's kingdom and the world.

As some of you know, I work in the legal department at a large academic medical center.  Working in the legal department can be demanding and stressful, and it is often easy to forget that my work has an ultimate impact on the people that we are here to serve - our patients.  Because of the nature of the work that I do, I often only hear the saddest stories, and I am often asked to advise on the difficult issues that have no easy answers.  I typically advise in cases involving people's poor decisions and bad behavior, and my interactions with patients are generally limited to helping someone with directions or observing their pain and illness from a distance.

I thought that today would be no different.  After lunch, I stepped onto the elevator with a young boy in a stroller and his parents.  The little boy had an obvious health issue that simply broke my heart.  I could feel tears welling in my eyes, and in my mind, I prayed, "God - why?  Why does this child have to suffer?  Why do his parents have to suffer?  How can I help them?"

When I returned to my office, I immediately sent Mike a text, which read:

"I need prayer.  My heart hurts.  Was just on the elevator with a little boy that broke my heart."

I then checked my calendar and saw that we were having a Service for the Blessing of the Hands.  This service was led by one of our Chaplains.  During the service, the Chaplain stated that many people do not think about the legal department and the work that we do.  However, he realized that we often have to carry heavy burdens that we cannot discuss with anyone - he recognized that these burdens are often incredibly heavy and important.  He said he wanted to remind us that "when we reach our hands out to do our work as part of the care of others, we are saying to others 'You re important to us and you are cared for by the efforts of many who value you and your needs.'"  He asked us to look at our hands and reflect on the ways that we bless others with the work of our hands.  My favorite part of the service was when he stated:

"We bless your hands in recognition of the Holiness of what you do every day... and to release the emotional burdens of those things done ... and those things yet to be done."

In that moment, our conference room felt holy.  Although my heart still ached for the little boy and his suffering, I realized that my hands do holy things each day.  I understood that on rare occasions I can do big things to help someone in need, but most days, I do small things.  Most importantly, I realized that I can pray to release the emotional burdens of the things that my hands do and that my hands have yet to do.

The Blessing of the Hands did not answer why that little boy has to suffer.  The Service did not heal him, and it did not stop the ache in my heart.  But the service helped me reflect on the beauty of Christ.  Because Christ is in my heart, I am able to share that love daily through the work of my hands.  No job is too tedious, no task is too small.  Because even the smallest, most tangential act of kindness and hard work can have a huge impact in a world that is hurting and in need of love.

Welcome to LoveWorks.

What is LoveWorks? LoveWorks is the community transformation ministry of Project:Re3 that mobilizes our community to serve those in need – the under-resourced, diseased and hurting – in the context of our daily lives. LoveWorks focuses on making a difference by supplying physical needs in three general areas...

LoveWorks Local | target areas of our city
LoveWorks Global | target areas in our nation and world
LoveWorks Within | serving those in need in our church

Our primary desire is to discover where and how God is working and join Him. We rely heavily on relationship when exploring how and where to meet the needs of others and this is reflected in our partnerships with and local and global organizations that are already making a difference.
Each month we focus on a singular ministry that physical needs and try our best to provide relief for those needs. Some examples of past LoveWorks collections are:
  • Food collection for a local food bank
  • Clothes and toy collection for Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in SD
  • Towels and Socks for homeless
Upcoming LoveWorks collections:
  • January: Blankets (they will be shipped to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in SD)
  • February: Suppplies for Guatemala Orphanage
  • March: Paper products, pillows, blankets for Next Step Ministry on Kernersville
  • April: Egg cartons for a local farm that donates their eggs to Next Step Ministry. 


“Make the community livable again.” –Isaiah 58:12

At Project:Re3, we believe that sitting in a pew on Sunday morning isn’t the primary way of answering the call of Isaiah 58. True, worship is part of the overall Christian experience, but God also wants His church to serve, to make a difference, to make the community livable again. And we believe God has equipped everyone with the unique talents and abilities that are needed to impact the world for Christ.
At its very core, Project:Re3 is a “missions hub” that accomplishes outreach through our  “Re:Group” teams and partnerships. Re3 members are encouraged to identify, pursue, and align with a team that matches the special calling God has placed on their hearts—or start a “Re:Group” of their own. These teams then engage with the “community all-stars” with whom we’ve partnered, like Anthony’s Plot, Prodigals Ministries, or Salvation Army, to meet the needs that exist locally, regionally, and globally.
However, we recognize that some Re3 members may carry specific burdens that do not match the purview of any established organization or community partner. In that case, Project:Re3 will work with those individuals to establish something new and make their ministry dreams a reality.
Men's Re:Group - Wednesday Nights @ 7:00pm. Imagine a group of guys sitting around a campfire just simply talking life. With honest conversation centered around work, marriage, kids, and God, our time together is never dull or short on thoughts.  Through an occasional guys movie night or dinner and you'll find a group of men just like you to connect with. Our location changes each week so be sure to sign-up for our emails at projectre3@gmail.com
Student Re:Group – Meets most Sunday evenings from 5pm-6:30pm. ReClaim is open to all 6th-12th grade students. Please contact Jessica Church at jessdchurch@gmail.comfor more info.

Prodigals Community - Prodigals Community is a halfway house for male ex-offenders with addiction issues. As the program has grown, so has it's service capacity. Prodigals can now serve twenty men at a time.   It offers a transitional structured program along with job training and personal responsibility. The program takes 12-15 months to complete. Project:Renot only provides financial assistance to the Prodigal community but we provide meals throughout the month along with building relationships and friendships with the residents. Find out more at www.prodigals.org or to volunteer with our Prodigals team contact Karon at tdixon8@triad.rr.com

Mexico City – For the past six years we have traveled to and assisted with various ministries in Mexico City including orphanages, men’s shelters, women’s shelters, and rescuing girls trapped in the sex trade industry. Through our long-term commitment to our ministry partners there we hope to bring light to some of the darkest areas of the largest city in the world. If you are interested in finding how you can be a part of one of our upcoming mission teams to MXC, please contact Mike at projectre3@gmail.com
El Salvador - Our friends Jon and Danielle Snyder in El Salvador believe in utilizing short-term teams to grow their long-term vision in El Salvador. We have had the privilege of partnering with them and look forward to many more years of ministry together. Some of the ministries our group have been a part of in the past include orphanage work, homeless ministry, food and clothing distribution, construction work, street evangelism, medical missions, and working with local schools and churches. You can find our more at http://www.missiontoelsalvador.com/ or by contacting Beth at beth.gee@gmail.com

We believe....

Jesus, God, and Holy Spirit
  • In one true God who exists in three persons; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
  • God the Father is infinite, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love.
  • The Father saves everyone who will come to Him, through Jesus Christ, from sin and death.
  • Jesus Christ was truly human and truly God.
  • That Jesus was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin.
  • In His sinless life, miracles and teachings.
  • Jesus died, was buried, was bodily resurrected and ascended into heaven.
  • The Holy Spirit lives inside every believer of Jesus Christ.
  • The Holy Spirit convicts the world of sin, righteousness and judgment.
  • In the ongoing ministry of the Holy Spirit and the exercising of fruits of the Spirit.1
The Bible
We believe all Scripture is given by God and is without error. We trust the authority, reliability and truth of all Scripture. In humility, we acknowledge we do not fully understand God and the world He made. For that reason we rely on the Bible to be the rule of our faith, teaching us what we do not know, challenging and leading us away from our misconceptions, self deceptions, and convenient ideas about life and God. We don’t choose the parts of the Bible we prefer or want to believe, obey or understand; instead we submit to all of Scripture believing it reveals the truth that is beyond us. We believe that Jesus is the word of God and for that reason we don’t just obey Scripture, we love it. Because, like a mirror it shows us who we really are, and like a window it opens our lives to the beauty, wonder, and love of the God we long to know.2
We believe that all people sin and have incurred a "sin debt" that separates them from the one true holy God. God is a God of justice but also of mercy. We believe that God provided a way for the forgiveness of sin through Christ's sacrifice at the Cross. We have a choice to accept Christ's sacrifice as atonement for our sin and thereby be reconciled to God in this life and in the next.3

Our Mission

Our Mission can be found in the words of Isaiah 58...
"You’ll use the old rubble of past lives to build anew,
    rebuild the foundations from out of your past.
You’ll be known as those who can fix anything,
    restore old ruins, rebuild and renovate,
    make the community livable again." (vs. 11-12)
Project:Re3 is a movement of people whose deepest desire is to show God's love to people in need by connecting them to people and organizations with available resources. Project:Re3 exists to serve Christ by restoring, rebuilding and renovating our hearts, our community, and our world.
We are "sent" people. The church is not the church until it is engaged in the mission field for which God has called it into His marvelous light. We crave healing, discipleship and intimacy with God. Project:Re3 believes that all of these things come in large part through obedience to the mission. Simply put, we heal ourselves when we heal others.
Discipleship does not primarily take place in a lecture or sermon but through doing.
We believe that intimacy with God comes from aligning with His presence and submitting to His will. Jesus' life and the early church demonstrate that God Himself is with the lost and the poor of the earth, proclaiming the good news of His kingdom. Therefore we co-labor with Him as workers in that harvest field.

Our Values

Accountability and Connectedness
We commit ourselves to each other. God did not intend for us to be alone!  We value mission and ministry done in the sense of community in a spirit of love and fellowship. We value free, committed, loving and accountable friendships. We value teamwork and seek to share of life at every level with trusted friends who are an extension of the grace and presence of God in our lives.1
Biblical Justice
We need to take a stand against all kinds of evil in the world. All sin and injustice is the enemy of the church and the kingdom of God. In the kingdom we find ultimate justice. It’s just not punishment for wrongdoing and oppression. It is also the restoration of wholeness, equality, and peace between people and with God. Our value of justice is a call to seek the value of every person in our city and in the world that we can influence.2
We believe and affirm in the Priesthood of all believers. Each person who has given his or her life in surrender to Jesus and His cause has a unique calling from Jesus to fulfill in mission and in the church. We believe this is only possible by the empowering Spirit of God living in and working through each and every believer. Therefore we work towards empowering each and every believer to hear and fulfill the calling of Jesus on his or her life. This value of empowerment is expressed in all spiritual gifts and callings for all people regardless of race, gender, or age for the sake of Jesus’ mission and for the equipping of all believers towards their spiritual maturity.3
We believe Jesus lived a life of humility; therefore we strive to live a life of humility.  Even in all our relationships and leadership roles,  Project:Re3 seeks to be a flexible learning organization, looking always to refine our commitments and expand our understanding and revelation of God and His call upon us.4
The Lost
We believe the good news of the kingdom is the most important “commodity” with which The Church and the people of God have been entrusted. For this reason we will engage the spiritually lost. We believe that The Church should not expect lost people to come and find them, but that we are called and sent to “seek and save that which was lost.” This is our first and most important task, even in our ministry to the poor (who could be considered the spiritually poor). Spreading The Good News of God is our top concern.5
The Needy
We believe in a Christ-centered ministry to the needy. It is our conviction that God is always on the side of those who have no one on their side. For that reason we believe the church should also stand on the side of the poor and the oppressed, and in so doing stand in solidarity with the heart and work of God. Jesus’ own ministry is our model. It is our belief that the church should prioritize, bless, and remember those who have less, and access to less, so that we emphasize that all humans are loved and valued equally in the eyes of God.6
Passion and Commitment
We believe in a lifestyle characterized by passionate sacrificial love. With Jesus as our model, we want our lives to be characterized by a passion, that no matter the cost, will:
  • Move us deeper into a relationship with God.
  • Maintains a high level of dedication in all we do for Him.
  • Values suffering and sacrifice.
We see Jesus’ willingness to suffer for the lost and the hopeless as a model for all who would come after Him, and that we likewise are to take up our Cross and to walk the way of suffering, joy, and ultimate redemption. We are convinced that the clearest expression of the gospel is love, and that love is forever re-defined by Jesus in His death for us. We are committed to the kind of radical faith that means we are ready and willing to suffer and sacrifice for Jesus, His name and His kingdom. 7
Prayer and Dependence on God
We believe in prayer and dependence on God. We commit ourselves to live a prayer-oriented life because only God can accomplish what He calls us to do and God should receive the glory. For this reason, we believe the church should be committed to pray for the world, the coming of the kingdom, and a deeper revelation of God. We value constant prayer because:
  • We desire to know God, to deepen our understanding and revelation of his love for us and the world.
  • We believe we are all called to the ministry of intercession and we want to see his kingdom come.
  • We need the Lord of the harvest to send us and other laborers into the harvest field.8
Sharing and Generosity
Because we value a spirit of “community”, we commit ourselves to both sharing and giving to believers and unbelievers alike. In sharing what we have with others we confess that God is the true owner and that we are only stewards in His vineyard. Following the example of Christ’s sacrifice at the Cross we are called to sacrifice as well. We encourage our people to give as often and as generously as they can, and to consider themselves stewards of the rest. Likewise, the collective finances of the church and ministries are used to advance the mission of Project:Re3.9
The Whole World
While we understand that our most transforming ministry will take place where we are planted and in our own city, we commit ourselves to the mission of God to reach the whole world. We believe that Jesus came as the Savior, not of one people, but of the whole world. Project:Re3 assumes responsibility for the world, not because we believe we can reach it alone, but because we accept the mandate of the Great Commission and the heart of God to love and sacrifice for the discipleship of the whole world. We accept this apostolic mandate to send and be sent into every part of the world and our place in partnership with the global church.10

What Is Project:Re3?

Project:Re3 (pronounced re-three) seeks to redefine the Christian experience. Our community isn't made up of just individuals, but distinct mission-focused "Re:Groups" that reach out to their neighbors, both locally and globally, to share the Gospel. We believe firmly that people make up The Church, not buildings, or budgets, or even leaders. When believers work together in sincere worship and genuine community to accomplish the mission of God, they are The Church.
Project:Re3 is a mission-based non-profit ministry. The people who make up Project:Re3 love the church, but hoped for more than Sunday morning worship and lukewarm religion that values personal comfort over Christian discipleship. 
Theologically, we are orthodox and evangelical. Being an independent non-profit organization (not coming from any denomination) we are anchored by the ancient and historical creeds of the church. The first and simplest creed: Jesus is Lord. We seek to place Jesus Christ as the head of this church, and to establish and submit to his supremacy in all things.
Our passion is for hurting and lost people of all ages, backgrounds, and socio-economic classes. We strive to empower leaders to reach and serve the people who exist at the margins of The Church as we know it. We believe that intimacy with God and commitment to His mission means prioritizing for those that are hurting and lost  and without knowledge of His saving grace. We also believe that discipleship of believers happens best and most significantly while obeying Jesus and following Him through mission - therefore, we empower believers to seek the heart of God in prayer to know their unique calling and to find a community where they can truly live it out. We then work to mobilize communities to meet the needs of the world around us, and to proclaim the good news of the kingdom.
INSPIRE people to surrender all their lives to Jesus and His cause.
CONNECT individuals into missional communities and the local church.
EMPOWER people to discover and obey their God given mission.
ENGAGE every kind of evil in our communities with prayerful action.
