- On Friday October 4, 2019, Life Church welcomed Jason Outlaw – founder of Vitraux Medieval Stained Glass Art in Boston, Massachusetts
A little bit about Jason:
I am an artist with an intense interest in helping others achieve their dreams. I do this primarily through teaching stained glass classes to help people use their hands and explore their creative side, and through dentistry. I also achieve this through serving as an academic adviser at Harvard College. I combined my creative endeavors by designing and building Medieval Stained glass panels that feature Harvard University shields, as well as high concept stained glass panels that express words of positivity. I can customize a hand-made panel exclusively for you that will add elegance and flair to any room. For more details visit my website:

The Traction Story
- Traction started 9 years ago in Boston as Leslie Moore chose a particular way to live out the values of her church Cambridge Community Fellowship Church by sharing her multi-family home with a group of young women (aged 18-25) who she lived alongside and mentored.
- In the months and years to come, other Christians partnered with Leslie to mentor men and women, share life, & sometimes their homes
- Individuals who have been involved in the network are called “The Traction Family.” No matter the capacity to share resources with others, each person commits themselves to disciplines of work and learning meant to empower them to transition into healthy interdependent living situations.
- Today, the Traction network includes individuals in Boston, MA and Central Falls, RI who support the discipleship and self-actualization journeys of others who have become part of the Traction Family.
