Where did you get the name from? The Cleveland Circuit Ride is the embodiment of Wesleyan beliefs: namely that the world is our parish. The early reformer and founder of the Methodist faith, John Wesley, did not confine himself to the pulpit in preaching the Gospel; he went into the streets, the pubs, the communities, seeking lost sinners; those little valued by "society", but greatly loved by God. John Wesley was called the Circuit Rider because of the travel by horse that took him to his missions. The Cleveland Circuit Ride is established to do God's work - to reach out and love (in a practical way) His children who are in need.
Why Family Promise? Family Promise is focused on the needs of homeless families; providing both shelter and support services to empower families to overcome obstacles and reach their goal of stable housing.
