At our monthly meeting Monday night, the President of Apartment Life, Stan Dobbs, flew in from Texas to speak with the Atlanta teams. One of the most encouraging points of his talk was his summary of the vision for the organization. Rather than continuing to expand indefinitely, the goal is that eight years from now, the Apartment Life ministry will be given completely to local churches to oversee. There will be no more need for a parachurch organization to run the program, because the churches will be provided with all the materials needed to place teams in aparment complexes. Doesn't that just make you GLAD? The leadership and "sending" agency of missions to apartments will be where it should be-- in the local church.
