Our History

John 6:58 “I am the Bread of Life, whoever eats this bread shall not die but will live forever.” 

 

God works in funny ways,  It was 2009 that a group of 27 men traveled across the globe to Uganda to serve in a war torn area of the country.  This group had the honor to serve many displaced people from the war and work in refugee camps.  Part of the trip was helping build new structures for the developing ministry center.  The bricks that were to be used had to be made by the group.  So these 27 men worked together to make the bricks for the construction project.  That day, they set a new world record for the number of bricks made in one day …. 658.   As those men traveled back to the States they wanted to continue the work of serving communities in need.  They launched a simple initiative called project 658 to help raise funds for displaced people in Uganda.  That simple effort to sell T-Shirts to help those in need quickly grew into a work to help the hurting in our own city.   It didn’t take long until it turned into a growing ministry to provide ongoing physical, emotional and spiritual support for our neighbors in need.  In the same way God used the hands of a group to make bricks to rebuild a community, He is using the hands of so many to Restore Hope for our city. 

Does Project 658 make a difference?
