What or Who is AMMOG?
AMMOG stands for A Mighty Move of God and is a group of community residents throughout the nation, called to do God's work, as written in His Word (The Holy Bible), as it is justly and rightly written. We do not interpret God's Word; we strive to follow the Word as it has been given. Nor do we take parts of the Word in order to use it for selfish purposes.
God, in working through people and events of the earth, is always working to move His law and His Word toward fulfillment. The AMMOG group is one such body, given a charge to move other people to God's Way.
You may notice that whenever people and their actions go in a direction that is way out of synchronization with God's Way, as defined in the Bible, a major shift occurs among civilizations. Whenever great wrongs and injustices are upon us, there is always a cleansing, a correction that occurs. Just as a new political, economic, and social order is moving about us now, AMMOG is an instrument in that correction.
AMMOG is a body of Christ, committed to righting the serious injustices and imbalances that plague our lives. We walk by Faith and we try very hard to live and act according to the dictates of God through Jesus Christ - lives of empathy, compassion, gratitude, righteousness, obedience, and service. We are not perfect, but we work towards a realization of the Christ life in all that we do.
Of absolute importance, we strive to show others how to live a more satisfying life, focused on a faith that God always does and will continue to provide what we need, as we devote ourselves to His way and purposes.
What Does AMMOG Do?

First and foremost, AMMOG is a spiritual body that is continually engaged in seeking guidance from God. We worship, listen, and praise regularly for instructions and direction from God. We read the Bible and we recognize God's Word. We open ourselves to communication from God through reading, reflection, prayer, meditation, and witness.
We pay close attention to what is happening in the secular world - behaviors, actions, events, policies, cultural shifts, relationships, freedom, politics, social impacts, justice, balance of equality, seats of power, resource distribution, trade and commerce, government, community - and we compare what is happening to provisions in God's Word. We then step in to re-align what is happening to the Word and we do this independently as a group, by assembling other people committed to righteousness, or teaming with other groups committed to doing what is right. Our work has included labor and employment, housing, energy assistance, food and water security, disaster relief, educational quality and access, community and economic development, health disparities, holistic health care, low income and elderly people, veterans rights, criminal justice, and youth development.
For many years, AMMOG has been a staunch advocate for housing and community justice. We have engaged in various protests against imbalanced gentrification, the lack of affordable housing, the demolition of housing for the poor, unjust practices in property tax assessments and property tax lien sales, predatory lending, illegal and immoral mortgage foreclosure, and inhumane housing eviction. We have provided consultancy services to hundreds of property owners, resulting in the suspension or curtailment of improper foreclosures and sales; we work with homeowners to effect postponements on legal foreclosures, allowing homeowners to remain in their homes until work-out agreements can be reached. We have also provided services in reversing homeowner eviction.
