Vision Statement: To provide an environment conducive to meeting the needs of today’s youth and young adults. We will provide Biblical instruction on such issues as peer pressure, sex, drugs, alcohol, education, life skills, etc. We aim to help develop Christian character by teaching young people who they are in Christ and demonstrate ways to personally apply the Word of God daily in their lives. This will be accomplished through teaching, training, and fellowship.
