• Spark the fires of revival in Chicagoland
• Demonstrate signs wonders and miracles
• Make the Fathers love known

'When I think of the times in my life in which I have felt the most alive, the most “me”, I immediately think of the times in which I have been living in intentional community. I associate those times with deep conversations, laughter, hard questions, good food, and good wine. I associate those times with both making big plans and hitting the town, and staying in and mapping out our wildest dreams. I associate those times with worship, creating, praying, prophesying, and making space for those around me. I envision all of these things and more for this crew. My hope is that we will find that community in one another and that we will be that community to one another, too. And maybe you’ll find that you’re more “you”with us, too.' -Kara
