Lightbearers is creating a sustainable model aimed at providing renewable funding for Christian missions. The model is focused: acquire housing complexes, house and disciple college students, share the profits through mission partnerships. The model is working: $1Million has gone to missions from our pilot campus while student-tenants have been grounded in a comprehensive discipleship program. Lightbearers has begun to scale this model to other campuses in the U.S.
