How ATLAS Works

The Word Picture

As we view ourselves on the road of life we find ourselves in a "pothole" from time to time. Sometimes we need people to give us a helping hand. Inside the walls of our churches we do a pretty good job of recognizing the needs of those who are hurting. Outside these walls we are unaware and less effective. This is not a criticism of our churches, it is simply reality. If we don't walk in the unchurched world, we don't see it; if we don't see it we don't understand it; and if we don't understand it, we won't minister effectively to it.

Recently, the potholes in our communities have grown bigger. We have a much higher percentage of isolated people living outside of a church body and apart from the way God has instructed and intended. Many are finding themselves in a pothole needing a helping hand but have no infrastructure of relationships to provide it.

"If one falls down, his friend can pull him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to pull him up!" Eccl. 4:10
