The Lasting Effect of 1Day

We spend a lot of time talking about 1Day, a day when we come together to complete as many projects as possible around town. It’s true that we serve for only a few hours, but the results last much longer. I had the privilege of leading TRUE Mentors a few years ago when 1Day volunteers helped with a project. A group of smiling people moved [...]

A Community Impact

In this ever-growing, ever-changing city, an annual event has taken root. For the past seven years, hundreds of people have come together in the name of community and love for a citywide day of service.

That Time We Almost Got Arrested

How can we serve our city in creative ways? That’s the question we asked that almost got us arrested. We were trying anything and everything we could to serve, so when we heard there were movies at the park every Wednesday, we jumped on the opportunity.

Finding Him in the Quiet

“God is always there — it is our busyness that makes us blind. When we stay quiet, we will be able to find Him.” For Xiaochan, it was this quote from Hoboken Grace’s Axiom retreat that exemplified the entire experience.

Why Attending Amplify Is Worth It

Nowadays there are so many ways to sharpen your skills. You can listen to podcasts, read a blog or two, YouTube it, or even attend a webinar.

An Album Years in the Making

Night had already come, but the streetlights stayed dark. Hurricane Sandy had hit just the week before, and Hoboken was only starting to recover.

As she often did when she was alone in the car, Dana began to hum. Then the [...]
