Born out of the conviction to fight evil with good, UNITE KC focuses on taking action that prompts heart transformation, builds community and, ultimately, leads to racial healing. The journey starts with one step. One volunteer. One project. One article read. One hour of service given. One Good Thing.

Engage is a part of Unite KC's Arts & Culture Domain. Engagers attend Unite KC's Second Saturdays and participate in Unite's initiatives.

The vision of KC for Refugees is to provide a unified platform for diverse communities to help create a welcoming environment for refugees moving to and living in the greater Kansas City area. Their approach to success is to:

  • EDUCATE community groups and organizations on the refugee settlement process at national and local levels.
  • CONNECT community groups both with local refugees and with each other.
  • SUPPORT refugees by working with local agencies and encouraging people to donate time, funds and household items.
  • DEVELOP alliances with regional and national organizations who are working towards the same vision.

Engagers collect supplies for refugees resettling here in KC and volunteer time to distribute resources and help refugees settle into life in KC.

Intersections KC
Encountering God in Life, Work & Art.

An INTERSECTION is a place where two or more roads, individuals or even ideas converge, diverge, meet or cross paths. INTERSECTIONS could be dangerous if not properly navigated. But, they can also be points of great life transformation.

We began wondering what it would look like to try to intentionally encounter God in the INTERSECTIONS of life, work and art. INTERSECTIONS KC is an online magazine dedicated to that pursuit. 

Engagers are the driving force behind this online publication.

Go Shout Love

We’re excited to announce our mission partnership with Go Shout Love. They are a nonprofit who’s passion and goal is doing amazing things for amazing families with kids on rare medical journeys. They feature a different child each month and use that month to love and celebrate them in big ways. We at Engage South KC partner with them by SHOUTING LOVE as loud as we can for each family and child each month. We do this by praying for them, spreading the word about Go Shout Love on social media, and purchasing the Go Shout Love swag which features a monthly T-shirt that is kiddo-inspired!

Check them out at goshout.love and follow them on Instagram @goshoutlove. And let’s get shouting together!
