WHY WE'RE HERE
WHO WE ARE
PHOENIX/ONE is a non-profit that exists to unify the church through care and connection.
Central to the mission of PHOENIX/ONE is the prayer that Jesus prayed for the church in John 17:23: “I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me.” (ESV)
We believe that our part in helping to bring Jesus’ prayer to fruition is to provide care for the church – specifically for church staff members. The Church focuses on caring for the lost, orphans, widows, and vulnerable. Often, these same church leaders are expected to and/or left to find ways to care for themselves on their own. Our extensive research has shown that this can lead to lonely and destructive paths that negatively impact individuals, families, and ultimately, the Church as a whole. Unity among the Church is the greatest apologetic of the love of Christ to a watching and waiting generation.
We create a safe, neutral environment for the staff of churches to connect and find care, which can foster individual and communal healing. It starts with ONE person choosing to pursue health to impact the Church in becoming more united as ONE!
When you give to PHOENIX/ONE, your generosity is responsibly expended to see Jesus’ High Priestly prayer come to fruition. Your funds will be used in the thousands of hours we spend each year meeting one-on-one caring for church staff members, for training up new Care Network members, and for any of the additional means that it takes to bring the Church to unity. When we come together as ONE, the world will come to know Jesus!
