Mission Statement: 

Discovering Opportunities for Outreach and Reflection (DOOR) is a faith based network of urban service-learning programs that expose, educate, challenge, and motivate participants to respond to the issues and concerns facing an increasingly urban world. Program offerings range from a weekend to a year and include opportunities for individuals and groups.

The Vision: DOOR invites our Discover, Discern and Dwell participants to “See the Face of God in the City.”

The Hope: By experiencing God’s love and shalom in ever-expanding new ways we can share and demonstrate God’s alternatives to the evils of racism, poverty and violence that tear down our communities and lives.

Core Values:
➢ We believe, as followers of Jesus, that all people are created in the image of God.
➢ We believe in respect for all peoples in all communities.
➢ We seek peace and justice; simple and abundant living; service as a lifestyle in a community setting through partnerships and education, reflecting diversity.

Organizational Statement of Faith: 

Our Faith Perspective:
Recognizing the various faith traditions from which we come, this network commits to the following faith statement:
We consider Jesus Christ our model of living for God and the answer to human need, hostility, and violence; God commands us: to respect life, love all people (even our enemies), reconcile broken relationships, and pursue justice. Our bond with other followers of Jesus transcends all racial, social, economic and national barriers. We view the Bible as our guide for faith and life.
