Our Values


1. We are centered on Jesus.

"He is our beginning and end.  He is the source of power for our ministry, and we are committed to sharing Christ in a relevant manner with kids and adults.  “For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things.  To Him be the glory forever!  Amen.” Romans 11:36​

2. We are committed to reaching disinterested kids with a wholistic approach.  We are passionate about embodying the transforming grace and truth of Jesus to all people. We strive to bring the Good News to kids by helping meet their physical, mental, emotional and spiritual needs.

“All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation.”  2 Cor. 5:18

“But seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the LORD on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare”  Jeremiah 29:7.​

3.  We are relational at every level. We are committed to establishing and cultivating vibrant communities of people, built on long-term relationships that have a generational impact for Christ.​

“We loved you so much that we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well, because you had become so dear to us.”  1 Thes. 2:8

4.  We are empowered by prayer. We can't take for granted that prayer undergirds our ministry and our own lives.

“…the prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.”  James 5:16b

 5.  We are a picture of the Kingdom of God. We celebrate our diversity, and operate in a spirit of cooperation and generosity toward one other.​  We bring kids and leaders together from different neighborhoods, ethnicities, and backgrounds as an expression of God's Kingdom in the city.

A new command I give you: Love one another.  As I have loved you, so you must love one another.  By this all men will know you are my disciples, if you love one another.”  John 13:34-35.​
