Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The chief problem we see is spiritual lostness. Added to that, other problems we see are lack of transcendent personal worth, broken or absent moral barometers, and no sense of personal responsibility in life, or ultimacy after this life. People in communities are divided among themselves and separated from the living God. We lack lives of love, suffer from limited life vision, bondages in the spirit and flesh, limitations due to social structures and lack of infrastructures, the break down of family units, and people not having spiritual life. Added to all of this, there are many assets young people need and it takes a community of people to help families fulfill those needs.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

My Life Matters meets young people right where they are, working together with the local church and other likeminded partners to raise up lifelong followers of Jesus who lead by their godliness in lifestyle, devotion to the Word of God and prayer, passion for sharing the love of Christ and commitment to social involvement. Out of this work, we hope to raise up disciples who will in turn impact our community.

We believe the above is best done in relationships. We connect vetted, responsible, missional adults to children and young people for disciple making and mentoring relationships through various means and opportunities, such as our youth center, before and after school clubs, small group mentoring, one on one discipleship, retreats, camps, service opportunities, and various other events and activities.

Using our 11 full time and 2 part time staff members we recruit, equip, and empower our team of nearly 175 volunteers and our many collaborative partners to meet young people right where they are through our many ministry sites. There our teams engage in long term friendships with students and children that we might inculcate them with positive life principles and powerful spiritual truth.

We have established a 20,000 sq. foot youth center, 15 before and afterschool clubs, recruited and trained and are sending out nearly 175 volunteers, connected over 25 local churches and over 20 local businesses in likeminded ministry. This means lives are connected! These vetted, equipped, and empowered people, organizations, and churches are engaging our community in relational discipleship, and this is changing our community.
