Adventuring in Benevolent Affection

The Hesed Project fosters individuals and communities that internalize God's passionate, committed, boundless love and releases them to intentionally and sacrificially live out Jesus' gospel and engage with others.   


Love & Belonging 

Jesus changes everything.

We cultivate and equip individuals who share their unique purposes and giftedness, shaping and influencing the world around them.  We teach adults how to lovingly live and actively respond to the prevailing loneliness, disconnection, selfishness, individualism, brokenness, suffering and unbelonging so prevalent in our culture.  We develop Spirit-led communities that intentionally invest in relationships and service, adventuring together in life to discover and share more of God's overflowing love.  Through our five-fold scope of engagement, we mobilize people to participate in God's Unfolding Story and to influence others' lives with His Goodness.  


Five-Fold Scope of Engagement



We foster individuals who function daily in God's overflowing love.  We deliberately act in love toward all people whom we encounter in our communities.

We use multiple platforms to engage individuals, teaching and encouraging them to embrace Christ's calling and Lordship.  We also provide soul care and spiritual formation for strategic ministry partners.


We mobilize our disciples for missional living.  We prepare them to go out into the world, to disciple others, to serve their communities and live the gospel.


We disciple small groups of adults, apprenticing them into wholehearted and transformational living.  We provide apprentices with applicable practice and help them develop life rhythms that result in maturity and Christlikeness.

The greatest issue facing the world today, with all its heartbreaking needs, is whether those who, by profession or culture, are identified as ‘Christians’ will become disciples – students, apprentices, practitioners – of Jesus Christ, steadily learning from him how to live the life of the Kingdom of the Heavens into every corner  of human existence.” Dallas Willard
