Help you embrace your identity in Christ; equip the heart & mind; and engage the culture with the gospel.
Our vision is to assist the local church by:
Exposing the fact that young people today are walking away from the faith at a staggering rate. Most pastors, parents and leaders are not fully aware of this problem. This has created a vacuous approach to a significant problem today: we are losing our youth in droves. We want to get this message out!
Providingmaterials that are biblically sound, engaging, current and significant. The majority of this material will be online for easy access and usability. Make sure to check out our devotion series that are designed to be self-paced journeys into a stronger relationship with Christ: Reflect|Christ and The Death of Summer. We have also launched a biblical engagement method for consistent spiritual growth entitled, the CORE Journal.
Counseling those who struggle with religious doubt. One of the leading causes of churched young people walking away from the faith is unconfessed religious doubt. Most pastors, parents and leadership feel inadequately trained to deal with some of the major issues young people face today from this skeptical world. We want to come along side of you and help with resolving these issues. We have counseled 100s of people of all ages with religious doubt issues and currently help Dr. Gary Habermas with many of his doubt cases. This truly is one of our passions, and we look forward to every opportunity that God brings our way.
Coaching/Training by providing area-wide teaching and training summits for pastors, leadership and parents. This is a future goal with our first summit being in the summer of 2020.
Motivating/Challenging by providing top-notch, exciting, current and powerful youth conferences, retreats and events in strategic locations throughout the country. Connect with us to stay informed about events coming your way!
Guiding young people into serving their community through area community service events, monetary collections for those in great need, and special emphases upon cultural wrongs that impact specific groups.
To provide all of our resources and services without charging fees or expenses to the church, pastors, leadership, parents and students. Our plan is to depend upon the generosity of God's people as they are led to give. We also generate funds through Christian Benefit Plans, an organization that specializes in helping churches, Christian schools and Christian business owners navigate the difficult world of employee benefits.
