Someone once said, "If you want to be effective, be an ear to the ground, listening to the cries and longings of our people, and the other ear to the voice of God."

The Village Project is a coalition of church and the community.  Our vision is for the Eden Park Community to be empowered, connected, and transformed by the church and community working together through the power of Jesus Christ.  We want to help individuals to become viable contributors to the health and well-being of their homes, neighborhoods, and community by providing them with tools, networks, and resources that will strengthen the community.  It takes a village!
