    We are passionate about family, friendships and finding our calling. This is a family, and a place to call home. Our mission is to provide a place where the depressed, the hurting and hopeless can come and find help. We want to be a place of family, community and hope.

    We welcome the community with open arms. We want to train an army of people who are passionate about living out God′s purpose for their lives. To then give that army an outlet for sharing the love of Christ through outreach and missions.

    We will continue our relentless pursuit to reach one more for Jesus by opening Peace Centers around the world, opening more international campuses, and going to the ends of the earth to share the hope of Jesus Christ.
