DOOR Atlanta

Organization Description: 

Our Strategy:

Expose people in a direct way to the city. Participants will spend from a weekend to one year living in an urban context, working with various helping agencies, churches and ministries already present in the community.

Educate people by spending time reflecting on the gifts as well as the needs of urban people and the communities in which they live. Participants will be asked to think about their lives and lifestyles.

Challenge people to consider Biblical responses to the issues of poverty, racism, and injustice facing the city, developing in them an awareness of the multiple ministry opportunities available both in the city and in their home town.

Motivate people to act in constructive, appropriate and loving ways both now and in the future, asking individuals to consider ministry and service an essential daily part of living out their authentic Christian faith.
