All of us recognize our brokenness before God and are seeking Him to change us for the kingdom purposes God has for our church. In this context, God is changing people. Showing them their inability, and God’s ability to defy what the world says about them and bring them into their kingdom purpose for life.

On January 22, 2015, I got a call while out with my family at the Children's Museum of Indianapolis. I didn't recognize the “563” prefix number, but my Smart phone said it originated from Davenport, IA. Usually, I try to limit the calls I take when I am with my family, but on this day I answered. The caller, Brent, introduced himself as the Well Fargo asset manager for the Community and Urban Stabilization Program (CUSP). He asked me if Brookside Community Church would be interested in a house two blocks away from our building. It had been abandoned for over 3 years. Wells Fargo tried to sell it multiple times, but the work that needed to be done far outweighed the asking price. Intrigued, I said, "Yes, of course!"
