Renewing Our City
Jesus loves Austin and desires its renewal! The bible teaches that Jesus is about his glory and the renewal of all creation that was torn and broken through rebellion. As people of Christ, we participate with Jesus in renewing people and communities through declaring and demonstrating the gospel of Jesus.
We would love to have you join us in renewal. Check out some of the opportunities below and follow the links to learn more about anything that connects with your heart.
The most direct way to renewal in our city is through our own renewal and the renewal of those closest to us, in our homes, our neighborhoods, and where we work and play. Soma Groups are our primary places of community, and where we share our lives with one another. They are not meetings, but rather a community of people who are in relationship with one another and who share parks, restaurants, neighborhoods and common struggles. They are where we learn from one another, serve one another, grow together and join together in renewing people we know and the local communities we live in.

The Rework Project
Rework Project is a city-wide community response that is about work itself and rethinking work for those experiencing homelessness. It is a relationally driven response. We can't always give money and jobs to everyone, but we can offer healthy relationships with dignity and respect. It is informed by the belief that everyone has some talent, but not everyone has opportunity. We want to be distributers of opportunity.
