Collaborators

Collaboration Is Key

There are no heroes in the city. No one can go at this alone. The neighborhoods are best served when leaders, organizations, non-profits, and churches from across a wide spectrum lock arms committed to make a lasting impact for the sake of God's Kingdom. Missional-incarnational teams are encouraged to identify those collaborators who are already invested in a community, learn from them, work with them, share resources and seek together the flourishing of the city. Reach77 as an organization is always on the lookout for those committed to Kingdom principles throughout the Chicagoland area. We believe we are best when we are together. Below you will find an ever growing list of collaborators.
