“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 email@example.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 firstname.lastname@example.org more info.

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.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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 email@example.com
