What we do …

Our Love Ottawa team does a lot of interesting and challenging things every week.

We pray. About Everything.

We meet with leaders. To hear their hearts and spur them on.

We build teams. To work on a myriad of impactful initiatives.

We neighbour our city. Exploring the 100 neighbourhoods that make up our great city.  Looking for ways to create collaborative action to make them better communities for everyone.

So we put together a Prezi that describes some of what we do.

This initial study will help us to develop expertise, tested methodology and a format to be shared with other congregations and applied to other neighborhoods and regions of Ottawa in years to come.
