Our mission is to transform communities through kids by providing long-term,
life-changing, worldview-expanding relationships, led by Jesus Christ.


We offer weekly neighborhood Bible clubs that provide kids with a consistent opportunity to learn about and stay on God’s path. We believe teaching kids to love like Jesus is critical as they go out and transform their communities.


We partner with neighborhood families as we match their kids with volunteer mentors. We believe mentors, who walk alongside their mentees no matter their circumstance, are integral to enabling youth to become leaders and make healthy, God-honoring choices.  


We provide life-giving, worldview-changing experiences (and lots of fun!) to the lives of kids, teens, parents and community stakeholders, in partnership with community centers, programs and local camps.
