The Villages

    What if no one lacked water? What if our children knew what it was like to be in need? What if we could help people with education? Or self-sufficiency? Or affordable housing? What big thing can we do to reach out to people in need? 

    Several years ago, the Compass Team met over the course of several weeks to discuss these questions and dream about the possibilities. The result is an initiative to help our children and youth gain a global perspective and change lives in individual villages in Kenya, Latvia, Costa Rica and right here in Grapevine. Visit each of the Villages for more information.

    To read more about how this involves our children and youth, visit the Roadmap for Spiritual Growth.
