Exilio are a community of followers of Jesus Christ, who are committed to living life with a pounding heart, an outstretched hand and a renewed mind - to be a voice of hope and a place of refuge.
The name of our community comes from the sense of alienation many people feel - exiles from each other, from our planet and especially from God. Although our members come from diverse backgrounds we have discovered that somehow Jesus makes the connection that brings people home.
We welcome people from all walks of life, regardless of where they are in their spiritual journey. So our community includes hardened sceptics and spiritual window shoppers as well as committed followers of Jesus. So whatever your circumstances - single, married, single again, with or without children, gay or straight – no matter what you’ve been through or what you’ve done, you matter to God. And to us.
Exilio is a growing community of misfits who are discovering
there is something more to life than meets the eye. There
are adventures to be had, a guide to follow, and a
community that feels a lot like home.
Well, for a start we’re serious about embracing this ideal of reconciliation as it deals with God and humankind. Because these issues matter so much to God, we are committed to addressing issues of injustice on a local and global level as well as partnering with the poor and helping the world hear their voice. In fact we feel it is our responsibility to be part of a renaissance of community transformation among the under resourced. Moreover, the arts and beauty are important to us. Diversity is not just about being politically correct. To us it’s about reflecting the very heart of God.
While you may not be ready to get involved right away, there are a variety of exciting possibilities at Exilio for you to meet people just like yourself and see if it's for you. Our culture is not about strong-arming you into a connection with God but about honest conversations concerning our relationship with Jesus, our community with one another, and our responsibility to humbly serve the misfits of our world.
