The Mission of our partner Kaleidoscope Institute

  • To create inclusive and sustainable churches and communities.

Objectives

  • To transform the way community and church leaders think about church—from a static, linear and maintenance-type mode to a dynamic, circulatory, and rejuvenating vision of a church that interacts with the wider community by maximizing the flow of spiritual, human and economic resources.
  • To empower church and community leaders with skills and knowledge to serve their communities more inclusively by facilitating and developing access to their Holy Currencies, thereby making both the churches and their related communities more sustainable.
