Their vision is to come alongside struggling, but faithful Followers of Jesus, to help strengthen & revitalize them, to provide them the resources needed to re-establish the gospel presence in their hurting communities. They want to send out vibrant and healthy churches, extending the healing arm of Christ as they prepare to plant new church communities in Scotland. Shannon plans to start a new mom's support group and lactation support group as a ministry. Current stats according to Barna are that only 2-3% of Scots are followers of Christ and only 1% attend a Bible based church.
