The Dream of Miracle City 

In 2017, Compassion United’s founders, Luke and Karla Redus, and their leadership team, met to brainstorm ideas of a master-planned community that would holistically support people transitioning out of homelessness, poverty and addiction. They knew that they were going to have to dream bigger than ever before to accomplish something of this magnitude.

Months later, Luke heard God speak the words “Miracle City” to him, and the dream grew stronger than ever! Coincidentally, the nickname Miracle City once personified the City of Conroe during the Great Depression, and now, we want to revive the presence of Miracle City within our streets today! Our nation and county face an epidemic of homelessness and poverty that no one person or government can fix. It is only solved by communities uniting together to lift one another up.

 A Community of Transformation 

Along the way, God has continued to bless the idea by placing committed volunteers, partners and community leaders along their path that have caught the vision. In February 2019, Conroe’s city council voted unanimously to convey five acres of land to Compassion United to see Miracle City become a reality.

Now in Phase One of construction, Miracle City will be a first-of-its-kind, whole-person transformation community for Montgomery County uniquely focused on serving the forgotten, marginalized and hopeless. Once complete, the five-acre campus will allow people to live and work in a graced-based, inspiring environment where they’ll develop emotional and spiritual maturity, life skills and work experience as they discover abundant life.

Miracle City will consist of transitional and supportive, short and long-term housing with built-in support services and empowerment opportunities. In addition, it will house a welding shop, carpentry shop, auto repair shop, food pantry, clothing closet, and so much more.
