Into The Neighborhood is about loving God and loving your neighbor.  It’s about living missionally, incarnationally, on mission. It’s about Christian Community Development.  It’s how we do it.  How others do it.  And how you can do it.  How we can all do it better.  We are dedicated to mobilizing and equipping people to live out God’s mission for their lives to reclaim, restore and rebuild the landscape of their community.

Miss Marti’s House is the urban ministry of Into The Neighborhood.  Marti’s blog (started in 2010) tells our story – how we ended up living just a 1/2 mile from the largest public housing complex between Baltimore and Atlanta.  We will continue to share about our life and ministry in Southern Barton Heights in Richmond, Virginia.  Please check it out here >>> Miss Marti’s House

Hope Works! is the ministry to the Richmond City Justice Center (RCJC), our second neighborhood. In the fall of 2015, we started a Jobs for Life course in the RCJC. In January 2016, our CoFounder – Louis Williams, became the Chief of Chaplains of the RCJC. Since then, our ministry has expanded to include weekly discipleship classes for men and women, Jobs for Life classes for men and women twice a year, personal hygiene donations and more!

We’d love to have you come to any of our gatherings, or help with homework or missional community, or anything else we have going on! What’s important…is loving your neighbor while building relationships. This is where we live out what we are advocating for here at Into The Neighborhood.  Contact us if you would like to help!  

Consulting: We have been asked to consult, to mentor/coach others, and to speak at conferences, to missions groups, and to churches.  This ministry will be a place for us all to learn from one another and dialogue on:

  • loving God
  • loving your neighbor as yourself
  • Christian Community Development
  • jobs
  • living on God’s mission for your life where He has called you, and
  • equipping others to do the same….discipling others and planting the Gospel.

If you would like to chat with us about any of these services, just give us a shout!  We look forward to hearing from you!
