About Us


Five Words Express Our Mission...


Your Purpose Matters!


We are NOT here to impress GOD, or others.  We are NOT here to be dazzled, by talent or techniques or tricks or personalities.  We are NOT here to measure ourselves. To make comparisons to make excuses to succumb to facility envy or GADGET LUST.  We are NOT here to create, recreate, rewrite, or reinvent the GOSPEL.  We are here to ECHO it.  We are here to SURRENDER our gifts to and our creativity to the CREATOR.  We are here to share are HEARTS our VISION, our LIVES and OUR creative callings.  We are here to GROW in KNOWLEDGE, GROW in WISDOM, GROW in PERSPECTIVE, and GROW in LOVE.  WE ARE HERE TO echo with our LIVES,  with our PASSION,  with our DREAMS, with the WORK OF OUR HANDS, because WE ARE THE WORK OF HIS HANDS.    WE ARE HERE TO ECHO! 

Become a Purpose of Change!

Our prayer is for you to experience the Unconditional Love of The Power Greater Than Self… The Power of All Grace, Goodness, and Greatness!

Being steadfast in their mission and understanding their purpose, the Twymans visualizes what is desired in relations to the community and the body of Christ, which is to embrace, edify, encourage, educate, and empower the least of these; keeping this God giving vision firmly in their mindsets.
