City Steps

MHV is committed to serving our local neighbors, community, and city. To that end, we are engaged in a variety of projects and ministries around our city.

MHV Justice & Missions - Vision Statement:

Our vision is to partner with what God is already doing in bringing about reconciliation and redemption to the poor,  marginalized and oppressed - both locally and abroad; and doing so within the context of the local church.

MHV Justice & Missions - Core Values:

Partnership -  Developing long-term partners with holistic visions of reconciling people to God, self, others, and creation.
Sustainability - Cultivating long-term relationships with people that will continue long after our time there serving is done.
Transformation - Personal transformation happens as we step out of our comfort zones and serve.
Empowerment -  All projects should empower people and seek to bless local leadership.
Relationship - Being created for relationship, we make decisions with people as our primary concern.
