We are people who have found the other-centeredness of Jesus to be so transformational in our own lives and families that we have chosen to commit ourselves to the same. We seek to follow the example of Jesus within our contexts, while at the same crossing geographical and social boundaries in order to care for others.
Servantworks challenges people to radically live like Jesus by practicing loving service and sacrifice in order to transform individuals, families and communities.
Reach, Teach, Send
We follow Jesus’ example to go to where people are hurting, patiently teach and model new paradigms that are often slowly caught, and prepare those who experience healing and growth to be transforming leaders, able to do the same.
Our lives are quite different from Jesus, a single, homeless itinerant in an era much simpler and slower-paced than today. But the guiding values we learn from Jesus are timeless and universal.
Our intent is never to make a name for ourselves, but always to empower others.
Our healing, recovery and leadership-development emphasis require a slow, small approach.
We cultivate deep concern for people with physical, spiritual and psychological hurts.
We do our best to stay flexible in order to respond to the needs of the people and situations in front of us. We regularly ask questions, try new methods, and evaluate our efforts.
We believe that age, sexuality, education, social class, economic status, talent, or past experience are not limiting factors. All have wonderful potential waiting to be revealed.
We attempt to challenge the working assumptions of our day when they conflict with providing love, safety, and dignity to others.
