Imagine a place where people of diverse races, backgrounds, ages, and cultures coming together as one under a unifying cause. What better cause is there than the cause of following Jesus Christ? And what or who else could bring all these different people together truly as one family living, loving and leading together to change the world other than Jesus Christ? Rather than diversity being the cause of division and isolation, we want to unite together and show the world that in Christ, anyone can be unconditionally accepted and belong to the same community.
