The Culture House
A not-for-profit arts academy founded in 1996, The Culture House has quickly become a premiere destination for Kansas City’s young artists and their families to grow and learn. The Culture House strives to educate and train individuals in creative excellence and artistic appreciation, build integrity and character through discipline and creativity, and produce and support a community of professional artists in artistic growth, healthy lifestyles, creative wisdom, and spiritual maturity.
Mission Adelante is an urban mission to Latino immigrants and Bhutanese refugees in Kansas City. Their mission is to win hearts to Christ by meeting the felt needs of immigrants in their surrounding neighborhood through ESL courses, home repairs, children’s activities, and authentic community. In tandem, they seek to disciple relationally and mobilize individuals to lead and serve, toward the end of growing a thriving network of reproducing house churches that impact the community.

Projekt:Kirche Mission: to create a place where all people are invited – for the first time or in fresh ways – to discover a Christian faith that plays a meaningful role in their lives today.
What if there was a church for everyone?
A gospel-centered, contextualized church that would truly serve its neighborhood? A church that would not only help people to connect with the Christian faith (maybe for the first time), but also have influence on the city as a whole? A thriving church in an area with little connection to the gospel that could reach like-minded people from all over the city?
Projekt:Kirche started in 2013 with these courageous and hope-filled questions. Its aim is to invite everyone (especially those with no prior faith-commitment) to explore how the gospel might have something to say to their lives in their city.
