We’re a community, a movement of young people passionate about global mission, social justice and God’s Kingdom. We want to see freedom for the slave, food for the hungry, and enough for all. We know we have a part to play in the story of God’s justice and hope that has been at work for thousands of years before us – and you do too!
In 2011 we started an experiment. We were passionate about God’s Mission and felt called to take action – and we knew we weren’t the only ones. So we started talking and dreaming with young people across the country. We talked, prayed and took action together. Through all this we found that it can be hard to know how to get involved, and that can be isolating.
That’s why we started embody.
Because we know God uses young people to change the world. We can’t sit on the sidelines, but we don’t have to do it alone. Across the country we’re building a community of young people who are standing up and changing the world.
In 2014 we launched Safe Water September, and through fundraising together have now given over 14,000 people access to safe water. Last year, in just one week almost 200 people prayed together for global mission. We’ve seen young people stand up and champion justice and hope to their communities.
