why do we provide resources?
Caring for your neighbors in holistic ways is a lifelong journey that requires ongoing growth and development for individuals and communities. We provide resources to educate and equip all the residents of Durham with practical ways to get involved, insights on pressing issues, and theological content to help you live a life that reflects the whole gospel.
