Purpose

Our vision is to empower people to attack poverty in their life and community by strengthening under-resourced communities through spiritual growth, education, revitalization, and basic needs.

Attack Poverty:

Attack - "To begin to deal with a problem or task in a determined and vigorous way"

Poverty - "Powerless, disenfranchised, lacking well-being and the resources to obtain well-being"

There are two types of poverty: Situational and Generational. We focus on breaking the cycle of generational poverty. Generational poverty cannot be changed with small, soft-hearted plans. It must be directly addressed with great intention through mutual relationships. Generational poverty is a complicated spiritual, relational, mental-attitude, educational and financial issue.


Mission statement

To strengthen under-resourced communities through spiritual growth, education, revitalization and basic needs.


Statement of faith

We believe...

One God, to be Creator and Ruler of the universe; He has always existed outside of the boundaries of time and has shown Himself in history in three distinct persons - God the Father, God the Son (Jesus) and God the Holy Spirit- these three distinctions form the Trinity.

Jesus is the Son of God, sent to earth to be the sinless sacrifice for our sins. He was both fully human and fully God. He was at the creation of the world, and by Him, all things were made. He rose from the dead after three days, and has complete power over sin and death. He will return one day to complete God's plan of redemption for all who believe, as well as creation itself.

The Salvation of lost and sinful mankind through the shed blood of Jesus Christ by faith alone.

The Holy Spirit is the third distinct member of the Trinity, co-equal to God and Jesus. He has been presented to this world to convict mankind of his sin, and make them aware of their need for Christ. He is present and active in each person from the moment they believe in Jesus as their Savior, and gives us power to defeat sin and the ability to understand God's truth.

The Bible is the story of the redemption of mankind by God. It is the inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God. We believe the entire Bible points to the work and person of Jesus Christ.

The Unity of the Spirit of all true believers, the Church, the body of Christ. It is God's primary and intended instrument to serve the poor and bring about community transformation.

History

In 2009, Richard Logan became the Missions Pastor at River Pointe Church and began to research areas in close proximity to his church with a high concentration of need. One day, he got in his car and just began to drive. Remembering people talking, several years back, about an "at-risk" area on the North side of the railroad tracks in downtown Richmond; Richard decided to go and take a look for himself. He was so moved by the need and possibilities for the church to partner with others in the community to bring about lasting transformation. After many conversations with city leaders, stakeholders and local residents, and pastors, Friends of North Richmond was born! The following year, Friends of Uganda was launched. In an effort to mobilize more churches and set the stage for future growth, Attack Poverty was founded by Richard Logan in 2011 and was granted 501c3 status! We are excited for all that God has in store as we look to the future and empower people to attack poverty in their life and community!
