Relevance is a 501(c)(3) charitable ministry whose vision is to: “To produce, promote, distribute, and exhibit the Relevance of God, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, in all forms of art, music, and communication, to all peoples, through all methods.”
The Courtyard is a place of sharing the relevance of Jesus Christ through the Alpha course and other venues of video, entertainment, relationship and discipleship.
The Courtyard is a non-profit co-ed Christian residence (i.e., a really big house with lots of rooms) owned and operated by Relevance.
The purpose of the Courtyard is to provide an encouraging and economical living situation where about 48 Christian collegiate men and women can be built up in their relationships with Jesus Christ and with one another.

The Courtyard is a means to achieve the vision in two specific ways. (A) through providing an environment for Christian students to sharpen their spiritual persons through discipleship and serving in the community and (B) by providing public teaching and activities that welcome the community in to see the relevance of Jesus Christ through courses like Alpha, and coffeehouse type programs.
Although not associated with any one denomination, its mission is to work in collaboration with all churches to reach people for Jesus Christ.
