We exist locally and internationally as an equipping center, a network, and a voice.
We provide training in these seven different areas of world crisis: spiritual confusion, educational inequalities, undeveloped leadership, human injustice, poor health & disease, environmental decline, world hunger.
The name i-61 comes from Isaiah 61, in which the first two verses say,
Jesus quoted this passage when beginning His ministry in Luke 4:18-19, and we believe, like Him, the church should be at the forefront of responding to the 7 different areas of world crisis.
Governments, non-profits, and para-church organizations are often seen responding to these world crises, but we have a passion to see the church leading the way in the ministry of justice and compassion.
For full dates and times of events visit our website: www.i-61.org.
There are several different ways to get involved in i-61!
Although we have many network partners all over the world, our only current missions training base is in Nicaragua. When the missions training aspect of i-61 first began, Nicaragua was highlighted not only because of already existing relationships and contact, but because it is the second poorest country in the western hemisphere and close to the U.S.
Depending on team size and cost of airfare, we try to keep the total cost below $1,500 per person. This would include room and board, training, and your price of airfare, depending on how much you spend on tickets.
Yes! i-61 is a ministry of Vineyard Boise and serves as it’s Missions Program. i-61 also serves the Vineyard Movement at large helping other Vineyard Churches engage in Justice and Compassion Ministry and Missions.
