CITY LIFE 

City Life is an effective ministry model to transform the lives of urban youth, their families and the communities that they live in. The City Life model gives a strategic way to pursue every young person in urban communities through relational, holistic, community-based ministry. Our desire is to see deep change in an urban neighborhood through the raising of indigenous leaders from the young people in that community and empower urban youth to change their community for Christ.  Working together with local leaders in the Houston area from the church, non-profit sector, schools and marketplace...our hope is to provide this City Life ministry for kids in under-resourced neighborhoods in Houston in the coming year.

JUVENILE JUSTICE

Juvenile Justice Ministries reaches young people in a variety of youth-serving institutions such as detention centers and probation programs. Mentoring relationships are built and sustained through ongoing involvement as they re-enter their communities and JJM staff and volunteers are committed to connections that last long after the teens have left the facility. With your help, we hope to expand our reach and service into all Dallas-Fort Worth institutions. 

WHAT IS JJM?

JJM is an effective ministry to reach teens in a variety of youth-serving institutions (i.e. detention centers, probation, correctional facilities, group homes, residential treatment centers, emergency shelters, etc.) Our strategy is to help young people develop a way of living taught by Jesus Christ; balancing the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual aspects of life. We build valued relationships that are sustained through ongoing involvement as they re-enter their communities. Learn more...
