About Us

NET is serving cities, one neighborhood at a time.

We were launched out of At Work on Purpose, and we collaborate with the city gospel movement and the nation transformation movement.

Here is our Purpose Statement:


Restore lives, revitalize neighborhoods, reach cities and reclaim nations as we:

  • Bring Christ to the center of our focus AND prayer to the center of our initiative
  • Harness the full potential of neighborhood leadership networks
  • Transfer proven principles and adaptive practices across geographies


Transform neighborhoods as we CARE for the spiritual, relational, motivational and material health of their people and institutions, for God’s purposes and to His glory:

  • Connect neighborhood leaders
  • Assess current and emerging needs
  • Resource proven solutions
  • Empower life in Christ

  • Transparent in Communication: speaking the truth in love (Ephesians 4:15)
  • Aligned in Purpose: embracing God’s path for us (Proverbs 19:21)
  • Collaborative in Implementation: connecting our best (1 Corinthians 12:12-26)
