Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Cambodia trips

Each year we go to Cambodia 2 or 3 times. We bring 20-25 people with on each trip to work with local NGO's, run kids ministry, build houses and care for the poor.

Population(s) Served
Preteens
Children
Adolescents

It is our desire to continue serving people by making fitness affordable and available. We love seeing kids struggle to reach a goal and light up with joy and satisfaction when they do. We see the beauty in families pursuing fitness together.

Currently we are running kids and youth CrossFit classes in Kalispell, and Bigfork MT. We meet Monday through Friday in the afternoons, running workouts and teaching nutrition. These workouts are fun, challenging, community focussed and cost effective.

Charting impact

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

To bring 60 participants to Cambodia each year, a team to Micronesia to work with YWAM Ships and a team to Latvia.
To distribute 500 prayer guides each year
To speak in YWAM School and Churches in the USA and internationally on justice issues

Actively engage people on line and in person regarding ministry trips. Phone churches and YWAM locations about speaking. Talk with pastors and youth workers about Steps of Justice resources like the prayer guide.

We are capable of all of these things. We have the staff and the resources to make it happen. We have speakers, team hosts, resources and the relationship with churches and organizations to see this happen.

We have made great progress in this. We have a growing mailing list, a good following on Facebook and have open invitations to churches and YWAM locations to teach and call people to justice issues.
