OUR STORY

“The Lord led us to Isaiah 58:10. He said if we would spend ourselves on those in need, our darkness would turn to light. It was this upside down Kingdom thinking that turned our group right-side up.”

Heartwork was born in a youth group in 2008. As youth pastors, we were seeing an increase in addictions, broken homes and suicide, we were navigating multiple tragedies and feeling tired.

The Lord led us to Isaiah 58:10. He said if we would spend ourselves on those in need, our darkness would turn to light. It was this upside down Kingdom thinking that turned our group right-side up.

We committed several weeks to living a different story than our culture was telling us. We learned about poverty issues, fasted and worked. The junior high and high schoolers allowed God to use their transformed HEARTS to contribute to his great WORK. Entrepreneurship flourished, faith grew and the joy of giving was cultivated. $67,000 was sacrificially given by students. The experience impacted their view of what it means to be a Christian, their college and career decisions, and our community more deeply than we could have ever imagined.

Since then, Heartwork has worked with student groups all over the country, empowering them to raise over 1 million dollars for poverty-relief and development projects, nationally and internationally.
