The Isaiah 61 Initiative


"The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, Because the LORD has anointed me to bring good news to the afflicted;

He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to captives and freedom to prisoners;

...Then they will rebuild the ancient ruins, they will raise up the former devastations;

And they will repair the ruined cities,The desolations of many generations." [Isaiah 61:1, 4 NASB]


We refer to our missionary work in the inner-cities as The Isaiah 61 Initiative. Sun Ministries facilitates the Isaiah 61 Initiative to declare God’s Glory through the spiritual renewal and physical restoration of the people and the land of America starting in the most desperate areas of our major cities. The Initiative is based on our calling to fulfill Isaiah 61 in this generation. We interpret this to be a call to love the hurting and rebuild the broken places.
