At its core, this concept is about local missions becoming more like foreign missions, where the missionary lives close to the people. It's all about building relationships, as part of a wholestic effort to spread the Good News. Additionally, this effort seeks to better connect local churches to the poor of a community, in ways beyond soup kitchens, homeless shelters, clothes closets and crisis relief centers. We want to see people's lives stablized and revitalized prior to the need for the above. This makes sense! All across this land Christians are "relocating". It's a different way to fight poverty. It has Peace Corps likings, but it's all domestic, and it's all founded on the Way.
