The word arrabon means “a foretaste of what is to come”. We believe the Church should be a foretaste of a reconciled heaven to our divided world. Through education, training, leadership development, and culture-making worship formation, Arrabon works to change culture and promote reconciliation on an institutional and societal level. We are grateful for the work that David Bailey and Urban Doxology are doing!

Foster Care / Adoption
There are currently more than 440,000 children in foster care in the United States (more than 5500 in Virginia). More than 123,000 of these children are waiting for adoptive families. Children who age out of foster care without permanent families all too often live lives marked by homelessness, incarceration, lack of education, addiction, sex trafficking, and more. God’s heart for the orphan is abundantly clear in Scripture, as is His call on the Church to not only provide, but seek justice for them as well. There are many ways we can impact the lives of these children - mentoring and tutoring, supporting foster and adoptive families, and opening our homes, temporarily as foster parents or permanently as adoptive parents.
Shalom Farms' mission is to work with communities to ensure access to healthy foods and also offers the support to lead healthy lives. We grow over 200,000 pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables using sustainable agriculture practices between our two farm sites. We share the produce we grow across the city with communities that have limited access to fresh, healthy options through partnerships and programs. Each year, we welcome over 5,000 volunteers and visitors to partner with us in our mission to grow food that is good for our bodies, our communities and our Earth.
