About

FullSizeRender.jpg-3.jpeg

Unveiled Faces started in 2007 to enable individuals to respond to the call to be transformed by the glory of God by serving the underserved, downtrodden, and least of these in circumstances of dire poverty or politics.  Since 2007 individuals have partnered to serve in Mozambique, South Sudan, Thailand, Philippines, Nicaragua, Egypt, Israel, and closed nations.

Faith & Core Values 

We grow in faith and core values as articulated by Iris Global.

1. His Presence: We understand that we can find God, and can experience intimacy, communication and companionship with Him in His Presence, if we share His love for righteousness.

2. Jesus: We are totally dependent on Him for everything, and we need and expect miracles of all kinds to sustain us and confirm the Gospel in our ministry.

3. Revival:  We look for revival among the broken, humble and lowly, and start at the bottom with ministry to the poor. God chooses the weak and despised things of the world to shame the proud, demonstrating His own strength and wisdom. Our direction is lower still.

4. Love & Suffering: We understand the value of suffering in the Christian life. Learning to love requires willingness to suffer for the sake of righteousness. Discipline and testing make saints out of us, and produce in us the holiness, without which we will not see God’s face and share His glory. With Paul we rejoice in our weaknesses, for when we are weak we are strong.

5. Joy: The joy of the Lord is not optional and far outweighs our suffering! In Jesus it becomes our motivation, reward and spiritual weapon. In His Presence is fullness of joy, and with Paul we testify that in all our troubles our joy knows no bounds (2 Cor. 7:4). It is our strength and energy, without which we die.

 

Philosophy: Sustainable Transformation

Historically the human has experienced God in distinct categories.  An example of such categories are spiritual encounter and transformation. This is the person who experiences God's presence in the here and now.  It looks like benefits such as miracles, prophetic words, healings, pilgrimages (conferences), an awareness of spiritual gifts, and an awareness of the mercy presence of Jesus Christ drawing near enabling salvation or a state of heart that was not possible moments earlier. Spiritual encounter can look like the deliberate and accidental encounter with the living God.  In the word, this looked like John leaning on Jesus in the gospels.  This looked like the miracles we witnessed Jesus do.  This looked like the woman at the well.  This sometimes looks like what we call Charismatics.  This looks like breaking of bread with one another.

Another category is moral transformation.  This looks like those who are proned to encountering God through the renewal of the mind. This is seen in the letters of Paul to the churches, the ten commandments and the greatest commandment: to love God, to receive His love and to love others.   This focuses on the word and what it says for moral living, living as the church or in community, or even for organizational behavior.  This is sometimes called Reformed, Presbyterian, Methodist, etc.  This also looks like the breaking of bread with one another.

Different personalities may focus on one type of experience of God even within the same circumstances.  Yet, for sustainable transformation of communities, it is our philosophy to help facilitate these two types of experiences of God in particular: Spiritual Encounter & Transformation and Moral Transformation.  It is our philosophy to embody these type of experiences of God through our projects and life. The two are needed to overcome the intense pressures and cycles of extreme poverty; the two are needed to serve our neighbor in a long term manner. It is a response to the word when it says that God is looking for those who worship him in spirit and in truth; for those encountering God in their bodies and in their spirit, their thoughts and actions.  It is a part of beholding God with an unveiled face until we are transformed by his glory.  It is a sustainable transformation meant for us as a community to change communities ravaged by corruption, poverty, and even shame.  You are invited.
