It is our passion to know God and to make Him known, especially among children, teenagers at risk, their families in the urban needy communities of Belo Horizonte. We believe that God is calling us to work towards a transformation in the spiritual, physical, emotional, intellectual, social and economic areas of their lives. We are also called to mobilize, disciple, train others to make an impact on children/teenagers at risk and their families all over the world. We are dedicated to raise awareness on the plight of children, women, men that are trapped in the human trafficking industry.
Today we have several different ministries and 3 different training courses; Discipleship Training School, Children at Risk Course and the Community Development School.
