At Circle City Fellows, we believe God’s people are meant to do the work of God in the space where they spend the bulk of their time – their workplace. By empowering young adults to integrate their faith into their work through our nine-month fellowship, individuals come to understand how what they do each day matters to the heart of God. And in turn, as they align that work with God's mission in the world, they become a blessing to the city, seeking its welfare and flourishing! Circle City Fellows is an initiative steeped in community and committed to the city as we advance and participate in God’s mission in greater Indianapolis so that everyone has enough and no one needs to be afraid.
Keith and Natalie Back serve with Cru reaching international college students at IUPUI. These students are lonely, isolated, and do not know Christ. They are longing for more so the Back’s come around them to introduce them to Christ. Keith and Natalie also serve as the bridge between Cru and Filter of Hope to create awareness of the clean water crisis across the world. Currently, two billion people lack access to clean drinking water. Through a household water filter that lasts 10 years, they take trips to 10 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean to give people clean water and introduce them to the Living Water. Take a trip and see what this is all about!
For more details watch this video talking about their mission trip experience.
