Making Room for Spiritual Care & Discipleship at Low-Cost Housing Complex

The Mosaic Center received a 2023 Equipping the Local Church Grant to begin a spiritual care and discipleship ministry at Maxwell House, a low-cost housing complex in downtown Augusta. The Mosaic Center is a nonprofit founded by Mosaic Church in Evans, Ga., and they already had an established food distribution ministry, healthcare assistance, financial education and other programs meeting the physical and social needs of the residents of the housing complex. But in talking with residents and volunteers, they began to feel God was calling them to deeper community, growing together in their faith and spirituality and inviting others living in that community. Doors began to open, and when our staff visited at Maxwell House in September, they had a newly renovated, dedicated space for Bible Study and spiritual care groups to meet! Residents and volunteers alike shared how much the grant has jump-started this new initiative, helping to meet spiritual needs in addition to physical and social needs in this community.
