We Are A Bridge
Our vision is to serve as a pivotal agent in integrating different people groups in reconciliation, empowerment of youth and development of leaders. City Impact 1995
In 1995 a group of individuals prayed and processed what we wanted City Impact, a new, faith-based, multicultural organization would look like. We grappled through a mission and vision statement and concluded with prayer. We did know that City Impact was called to be a bridge in the role of reconciliation in our community. Today, my heart grieves and I am conflicted.
Yes, I am conflicted, but I know that God has called City Impact to be a bridge. So, how do we do it? We listen to people who won’t hear us but we need to hear them, whether they are in the community or the church. We pray and try to empathize what they are experiencing regardless of how uncomfortable it may feel. We forgive and we ultimately love. Ephesians 4:32 reads “Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as God forgave you.”
In the midst of my conflict, I hear God speaking to me – “Betty, I sent my Son to die for all.” Please don’t hear me saying it is easy – but, City Impact, our staff and board are committed to being a bridge in our community. We are praying for healing, reconciliation and peace . . . will you join us?
In His Grace,
Betty Alvarez Ham
