Powderhorn Student Intern

As many students go back to school today, this season also marks for us our Powderhorn fall kickoff and the launching of youth development programs and new initiatives.

What we are most excited about as we enter this fall season, and the thing we’ve been dreaming about for years, is the hiring of our first Ace student intern. Graciela has been part of Ace programming in Powderhorn for four years. Graduating from high school this past spring, we’ve had the privilege of growing with Graciela, seeing her develop into a strong, caring, capable leader in the classroom, community, workplace, on our Juarez trips!

That’s powerful stuff….

I invite you to a place where God is working and moving. A place where Ace in the City has been walking with, working with, loving and serving alongside, for over 6 years now: Emmanuel Children’s Home.

We’ve had the privilege of leading teams to this amazing place since 2009. We’re going back down this Christmas in just a few days. It is always such a unique and powerful experience to celebrate God With Us in a context and culture different than our own. Continue reading …

Big Changes

Change is tough sometimes. Even good change….

We’re ramping up for our 4th Annual Doing More Together Fellowship Dinner on Saturday, November 14th. And, as even the name communicates, we’ve got some BIG CHANGES in the works:

We’re so glad to announce that we’re moving the event to our neighborhood. Thanks to our partners, Urban Ventures, for opening up your space to us! No silent auction. (Sigh.) While we loved the atmosphere that a silent auction created, it didn’t necessarily bring about the greatest return on our investment of time and energy. Intentional and increased emphasis on Table
