Though in our hearts for much longer, Inside Out Community Development Corporation was created in 2011, born out of a vision that came from being founders of Blood-N-Fire Ministries. Blood-N-Fire teaches compassion, living incarnationally sharing food, music, ministry and fellowship.
We knew that we wanted to continue to do our work of compassion, but increasingly wanted to move towards “empowerment”. As the adage goes, “when you give a person a fish, you feed them for a day; teach them to fish and you feed them for a lifetime”. Inside Out promotes the bigger idea of empowerment by quoting John Perkins; “by empowering a man, you can help him be the owner of the pond someday. “
Inside Out, as a community development corporation, takes the foundation that we have built through our compassion ministry outreach and is intentionally providing empowering opportunities with the same compassion. We empower people and organizations to grow our community so we can see our community transformed from the Inside Out.
