The Effect Prayer and Being Present Has on a Troubled Community

This film was produced in partnership with The Ogilve Institute of Preaching at Fuller Theological Seminary.  During our first conversation with Joy we quickly realized their was a wealth of knowledge and lessons we could learn.  We spent a week just outside Sacramento, CA following Joy and her team around.  She has spent her life engaging with her community in an effort to put “faith into action.” You can learn more at Life Matters, Inc.
