This week at GCF we’ll be learning about “MoveIn”
“The Word became flesh and blood, and moved into the neighborhood.”
(John 1:14, The Message)
I have heard about MoveIn from several GCFers over the years and I’ve been thinking for a while that it would be a good thing to learn about and discuss at GCF – I just needed to find someone who could talk about it! Well this week Jordan and Danielle have agreed to come, tell us some stories and have a conversation with us about their experiences living in St. James Town and other MoveIn communities.
Are you interested in prayer, incarnational living, and the poor?
MoveIn is a movement of regular Christians prayerfully moving in among the unreached, urban poor. Locally and globally.
It’s mission is to see the church present and making reproducing disciples in more unreached, urban poor communities globally.
It’s a movement that I joined. I lived as part of the MoveIn team in St. James Town (Parliament and Wellesley) for 3 years. Danielle, my wife, joined the team after we were married in 2014, but before that, when living in Ottawa, she was part of the MoveIn team on Donald Street. Since then, Danielle and I moved to England for a year and have now moved back to where we currently live — Wycliffe College.
We have much to share about our experiences, mostly good, though some difficult things too.
I hope you’ll join us, and bring a friend, to hear Jordan and Danielle’s story.
