Missional Communities.

Missional Communities are made up of several Gateway Groups organized around a shared mission. Each Missional Community serves its neighbors in order to create long-lasting change in the relationships, institutions, and overall conditions of our city, especially focusing upon those in greatest need.


Joppa builds relationships, provides survival supplies and helps with specific needs in the homeless community (people under bridges, camps and vehicles) Their mission is to: create a community of unconditional love, support and hope for the homeless, and to help get people off the streets in Polk County.
