JOIN US IN NORFOLK, VA
When we open the paper in the morning and read about the city of Norfolk, Virginia, we get a glimpse of a growing and thriving economy. Big headlines catch our attention, sharing stories of growth and change. Norfolk is located next to one of the largest ship repair facilities in the country, home to Eastern Virginia Medical School, the Hampton Roads Admirals, and new businesses thriving in the multimillion-dollar Waterside development. But, on the next page, we see a city beset with challenges. What does EY2S see that others don’t? We see the hope of Christ. We see young kids created by the Creator that need love, direction, leadership, opportunity, discipleship, and more. We see an opportunity, as the Apostle Paul illustrated in his epistles, to apply head knowledge of scripture, and Biblical principles of love, joy, peace, and reconciliation within the inner city.
A Glimpse into our Ministry:
After spending seven years leading domestic mission trips to other parts of the country, Jeff Montgomery and his team were no longer content to let someone else reach his own city. Partnering with local churches in Hampton Roads, his vision of a Norfolk-based, inner-city focused, mission organization became reality. EY2S is designed from the ground up to train young people to see the need next to them, equip them with Gospel tools, and send them back to their communities with leadership abilities and passion for the unreached.
