Equipping teens to be Jesus' hands & feet
in America's Inner Cities
Looking at the information we currently have available about the spread of COVID-19, the development of treatments, and a lot of reflection, discussion, and prayer, we have made a decision for this summer. For the safety of the kids, staff, and community in Norfolk, we have decided to cancel our summer missions in 2020. However, we have great hope that we can still do modified ministry in Norfolk this summer while following social distancing guidelines.
How Can You Get Involved?
Spread the Good News
Daily in the inner city, hurting people are struggling to make ends meet. The lack of economic opportunities creates a constant battle against hopelessness. Many feel like outsiders to mainstream culture. These people are our neighbors, but how often do we treat them with worth and dignity?
Good people are doing great work now to bring hope to their community. A crucial support network built on programs and relationships is working bridge the wealth gap.
But the truth is, only the gospel of Jesus Christ can bring radical change in a person or a neighborhood.
EY2S is a Norfolk-based, inner-city focused, mission organization designed to equip young people to see (and meet) the need next to them. When students are equipped with the love of Christ and practical tools the inner-city is radically changed. When we send them home, they are too.
And isn’t that what we’re all looking for?
As we engage in domestic, cross-cultural ministry, we want to teach young people to do the work of the Kingdom, with an intentional, hands-on approach. Working together to engage communities who are near us, but culturally distinct from us, builds the faith of young people. EY2S works to train and inspire people of every socio-economic background to take responsibility for their part of God’s harvest.
WE BELIEVE CHANGE IS POSSIBLE.
