"The Word became Flesh and Blood and moved into the neighborhood..."
John 1:14

It is time for Christians to reconsider where they live.

MoveIn is a movement of ordinary Christian believers who strategically and prayerfully move in and live among the unreached urban poor communities.
What do we stand for?

MoveIn is about copying Jesus’ example (Phil. 2:5-7) by literally moving in to the community.

 

It seems to have become the norm for Christians to move into a community for the sake of convenience and comfort — and not because of a calling to reach that community. We prefer to avoid uncomfortable or potentially unsafe communities. This shouldn’t be the case.

 

God is calling us to care for the marginalized, live among them and then love the neighbors around us. He is asking us to move into communities burdened by economic, educational and social problems like poverty, dropping out of school and unemployment.

 

We are ‘moving in’ because Christ did it first (Eph. 5:1).

The Word became flesh and moved into the "neighborhood."
~ John 1:14
“For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich.”
~ 2 Corinthians 8:9

Moving Together in Changing Lives

1/6

Being 'moved in' isn't always easy. You might get bogged down by the brokenness, poverty, and noise. But through Jesus, I have been able to see great miracles and joy in my neighborhood, hear amazing stories of resilience and best of all, share God's love to and from my neighbors!

I was inspired to “move in” by the words of Jesus: “blessed are you who are poor” (Lk 6:20).  What is this blessing? And can I be a part of it?  I still don’t fully understand, but I’ve begun to experience how being close to poverty can strangely bring me closer to God.

I remember the day I first came to my new neighbourhood. I was quite anxious. But as time has gone by, this neighborhood has become my home and I truly wouldn’t want to be anywhere else. Jesus has given me a sense of purpose here and I feel like I'm walking in step with him here each day.
