Our Vision.... To Be a Bridge to Transformation!
Mission Alabama is a Collaborative Strategy. We are committed to creating partnerships that allow individuals and families to access the highways of success as a means of strengthening each community. We believe that successful individuals and families are the building blocks for thriving communities. By connecting and mobilizing stakeholders across lines that have traditionally separated Alabamians, we are able to lead communities in developing transformational models.
We also believe that thriving communities are the DNA of productive cities. Therefore, a city cannot become productive unless the people that live there achieve success in their individual lives. At Mission Alabama we help communities create strategies for holistic community transformation. Our success has come from weaving the faith, corporate, government and grassroots into a concerted effort to address the spiritual, emotional, intellectual and physical poverty plaguing low to moderate families throughout the state of Alabama.
Our Mission is to demonstrate God's love towards individuals and families living in and with the results of generational poverty. We are committed to building strategic bridges in order to create effective partnerships that lead to community transformation.
Our Transformational Model begins with building partnerships that empower individuals to achieve personal success. Those same partners support the empowered individuals as they transform their families. Subsequently, these thriving families will become agents of change to make their neighborhoods successful. The “Point of Transformation” for a community happens when the community begins to drive this transformational process.
We will assist our partners by connecting them to opportunities that empower impoverished residents to become agents of change in the fight for holistic community transformation.
We will assist individuals and families to (those to be served through our efforts) achieve a transformed life displaying the hope of God’s love and to increase their awareness of their own sufficiency within the context of community.
To our partners – To assist them in building bridges that fulfill their goal to engage impoverished individuals and families in a manner that helps them achieve holistic transformation (i.e. spirit, soul and body).
To individuals and families – To be a partner in transformation that provides the hope of God’s love and the opportunity to realize self-sufficiency within the context of community.
“We have to move from throwing turkeys over the wall, to building transformational relationships!”
“We have to embrace our common unity in order to transform our community”
“The poor in our community are not only without resources, but the poor are also hurting!”
“A community is not truly transformed until the individuals in that community experience transformation in their spirit, soul and body.”
“The un-churched in our community are not those that don’t come to church, but rather those that are unloved by the Church!”
“For a child to be raised without a father in the physical world is a violation. For a child to be spiritually born again without having a Church to mother them is a double violation. The Church must set the example to the world in providing for and covering all that we produce!”
Everything that is done in the world is done by hope.
