A message from our Director

Welcome to Peoria's Southside, I am Pastor Irene Lewis-Wimbley, Ordained Elder and Evangelist called as Missionary to the 61605. Relocating to Peoria's Southside with my two teenage daughters has been more rewarding than I could've imagined.  My daughters, my team and I have spent the last year listening to our neighbors and building relationships to build a strategic plan to advance the Kingdom here in Peoria.  As I like to say, "plan to execute and execute the plan".   We have prayed, lamented and cried out to God for His strategic plan and we are chasing after Him and desire to be where he is.  He has ordered our steps faithfully.  We have worked hard to create a safe place and a stronghold that our new friends and neighbors can come and seek God 's vision for their lives. Our goal is to equip everyone with the tools needed to reach self-sustainability and begin to help others walk the very same pathway of hope.  Since the moment I excepted the call to move to Peoria's Southside, it has been a wild ride that proves God is doing something big. He truly is Transforming Community One Relationship at a Time.
