M28 is a faith-based, community conscious movement comprised of people who help others who want to help themselves. We come alongside those who are finding their way in life, with the goal of moving them from poverty to stability to community.
Poverty Stability Community
The M28 Story
Some things are birthed out of hardship, other things are birthed out of a keen sense of God-given awareness that flashes in on us out of nowhere (or so it seems). When it is done, it burns inwardly leaving us burdened with a deeply impassioned heart and a helpless sense of wonder. The work of M28 was inspired by the fusion of these ingredients. When God clears out the debris of a cluttered heart, the eyes and ears are opened and one sees what has been lost, a treasure that has been misplaced and time that has been wasted. One cannot recover lost time but one can find what was misplaced. And so we are recalibrating in light of Christ’s forgotten ways and God’s missional purposes. M28 participants have a strong desire to see our communities transformed and made whole again. We are eager to inspire a movement of churches, non-profits, and local agencies who do life with those struggling to find their way. We are a missionally-minded, growing movement of ordinary people who are passionate about equipping those in our community to see the marginalized and disenfranchised find hope and offer them a taste of grace. We believe that everyone should risk more than others think is safe, care more than others think is wise, dream more than others think is practical and expect more than others think is possible.

How M28 helps those finding their way in life.
We value transformational relationships over transactional ones. We invest in people, not programs.
We partner with other non-profits, churches, and agencies working with those in poverty.
By doing life with others we see real results of people moving from poverty to stability to community.
