Mission and Vision

Our Mission

Our mission is to build a radically hospitable community, rooted in grace, that practices deep listening and creative liberation.

Our Vision

Our vision is to become a Spirit-led a movement inward, outward, and onward together that becomes…

…a school for exploring inward: developing spiritually mature, courageous co-creators in the way of Jesus.  How? Through providing exposure to spiritual experiences, practices, and wisdom; opportunities to take risks and exercise leadership; and honest dialogue in grace-filled community.

…a launchpad for loving outward: inspiring and equipping people to become agents of the Spirit’s liberating, world-changing work.  How? By building strong alliances, and inspiring and equipping V&M’ers to fertilize the efforts of our partners to alleviate suffering and create alternatives to exploitative systems.

…an organism progressing onward: evolving as a hospitable, relevant, self-sustaining, and generative movement that reflects God’s radically inclusive love.  How? By inviting new people into the fellowship and incorporating their gifts and voices; sharing missional and financial responsibility for V&M; and seeding new expressions of community.

…a community sharing life together: creating a culture of deep listening, care, celebration, and trust where the ability to belong is integrated with the right to be different. How? By intentionally creating space in our lives for each other; providing meaningful rituals to mark life transitions; and nurturing healthy relationships of all kinds.
