Our mission is to impact youth for God's glory through equipping them to be leaders who are the hands and feet of Jesus
Our Core Values
We believe that we can do nothing apart from God. We pray because God is active and involved in the lives of His people, and delights in our prayers.
God’s Word is truthful, trustworthy, and useful for us today. On every page He has laid out his great story of salvation, drawing us to Him.
2 Timothy 3:16
God has intentionally planned to accomplish His purposes. We seek to emulate that intentionality by always using everyday moments as an opportunity to go deeper into the gospel.
The Lord has always used relationships to build His kingdom-think of Jesus and His disciples. Jesus, the shepherd that goes after the one lost sheep, has called us to build relationships to do the same.
Nothing that happens in the dark will remain hidden from the light. So we seek to live honestly; being accountable to God's high standard of holiness.
1 John 1:5-7
Our Key Verse
2 Peter 1:3
Seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence.
CHANGE DESPITE THE ODDS.
One teen, one youth group, one neighborhood, one city, influencing a nation.
We believe that using our gospel-driven staff to influence youth to know God and to make Him known, will raise a generation of youth who reject passivity and serve the lost and broken with intentionality like Jesus Christ. These youth will transform not only our home city of Norfolk, but in the future, cities nationwide with the gospel.
