Mission Statement

"In response to God's calling and in a spirit of reconciliation and renewal, Walltown Neighborhood Ministries and partners seek to engage and empower the residents of Walltown to create a community where every person can achieve educational, economic, physical and spiritual well-being."


"The rise of Walltown Neighborhood Ministries and the signs of renewal in the neighborhood have been brought by prayer, patience, and persistence. We believe in miracles."
