Our New Site And Design Announced

Tonight the Circle City Villages board met with members of the Greater Gardens Neighborhood Associaton to present our plan to build a tiny house village at 1318 S Lynhurst Dr. We are thankful to partner with Lynhurst Baptist Church in pursuing this project. The plan is to build the village in two phases with 14 houses built in the first phase. After giving the first 14 residents a chance to adjust to living in this type of setting we will evaluate the right time to expand the village to 28 tiny houses. Below are renderings of our current design plan.

This is the first of many public meetings we plan to hold to communicate with neighbors about our plan. Pay attention to announcements of future meetings on this site and on our Facebook page. We look forward to engaging with more community members on how we can work together to create a place where friends experiencing homelessness can find healing and take the next steps to a sustainable life in an environment where they are supported and embraced.

I currently serve as the North American team lead for Communitas International, a network of missional and microchurch practitioners that starts and shapes faith communities that love like Jesus in their neighborhoods. In this role, I have the privilege of working with a great team that shares in the vision of reimaging how faith communities engage in their communities to bring the tangible goodness of God to the lives of those who are marginalized and most vulnerable. Prior to this, I lead teams in Indianapolis, IN that focused on addressing the issue of homelessness in various ways. This included serving as an outreach advocate for Food 4 Souls and starting Circle City Village, a team that is working to build the first tiny house village in Indianapolis for people transitioning out of homelessness. Diakonos Community, our core community, worked with low-income apartment buildings where those transitioning out of homelessness were moved to help build community among residents and provide spiritual formation opportunities for those who desired it. I am blessed to journey through life with an amazing wife who is gifted in so many ways of her own and challenges me to keep growing every day. We also have three daughters who are beginning to blaze their own paths in the world and amaze us with their giftedness and kindness.
