Become a Mentor


Make a Difference – We are excited to announce the launch of our new Mentoring Program every Tuesday evening. We desire all of our kids to understand the gospel of Jesus and to look to scripture as the absolute truth in their lives.

We are seeking: One to One mentors with children from troubled inner-city neighborhoods where poverty, violence, gangs, and crime are everyday dangers that place extra stresses on families. These stressors can endanger a child’s health and development.
