Gary, Nancy, Paris,and Milan Liederbach are living as local missionaries and leading One Direction Community (ODC) to reach those in Madison-Huntsville, Al. with the hope of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  Our daily prayer is "Lord, send us the ones no one else wants."
Our home is always open and a place where church, trainings and counseling takes place, people are fed, and groups gather on almost a daily basis. 
Gary is planting simple House Churches
My daughter Milan has started a weekly gathering for teenage and young adult women. Some who are pregnant, have young babies, and are living in broken and addicted homes.
My wife Nancy has started a a class for women for accountability and equipping them for spiritual warfare in their lives. 
We launched "The Gathering", a Friday night time of prayer and worship in a closed down elementary school in an impoverished neighborhood in Huntsville.
We have baptized new believers into God's Grace!
So far this year we have smoked over 2,000 lbs. of meat for meals at our Community Dinners and The Manna House to feed those who are hungry. 
We have our "boots on the ground" and weekly prayer walk our streets and neighborhoods, praying in public parks, and interacting with our community. 
We are missionally going into our community leading weekly "simple church" gatherings and children's ministries inside places like a Flea Market, Laundromats, apartment complex community centers, and Waffle Houses.
We are globally reaching out and welcoming foreigners from Kazakhstan, Egypt and Turkey and working with our Latino and African- American neighbors.
I put out a daily blog reflection post called, "ODC Daily Message" to both encourage and challenge us as the body of Christ.  Below is the link to my post, "He's my F*cking Pastor"

Become a "Virtue Capitalist"


God is moving us outward and we are supplying the "boots on the ground" by serving hands-on with neighbors!  We are driven and have the time to invest, however we lack the financial resources needed to invest in our neighbors!

Secular business launches rely on the partnership of Venture Capitalists, who partner in the hope of receiving personal financial gain.  We are seeking the support of “Virtue Capitalist," who partner in the hope of others receiving the grace of Christ.

To run Community Dinners, KOK children’s ministry, our meals outreach, and other ministries and meeting basic family needs will require approximately $100,000 over the next 15 months to the end of 2018.  We would be blessed if you would partner us though a one time or monthly financial gift.  More importantly, you will bless those whom we bless hands-on through your generosity.

Please pray for us daily!  We launched One Direction Community (ODC) to be just that, a community of house churches that meets in homes, restaurants, laundromats, flea markets, apartments and other locations in the Madison-Huntsville, Al area. We believe we can more effectively reach our city through a network of reproducing churches. We are a real community of real imperfect people, who gather in simple house churches and around dinner tables.  We are building connections, a family of faith that actually knows and cares about its neighbors. We are organized and focused with the missional purpose to impact poverty and injustice and make disciples of Jesus.

We are relationally reaching out to those who society would label "un-churched"by living out Jesus' commandments to....

Love God, Love our Neighbor, and Make Disciples.
(Mk 12:29-31; Mt 28:18-20)
