WE GIVE OUR LIVES | FOR A BROKEN GENERATION | TO BE MADE NEW.
As Christ gave His life to live among us and then die for us, we want to give our lives to step into and live life alongside a broken generation [Philippians 2:1-11, 1 Thessalonians 2:8].
Christ came for each of us in our own brokenness [Isaiah 61, Matthew 9:12]. We pursue a generation of youth who are stuck in a cycle of community brokenness.
Christ is the hope for us to step out of generational brokenness and into new life in Him [2 Corinthians 5:17-21]! God desires to make all things new in our lives and world.
A RELATIONAL NEED
We see a relational gap among urban youth in Johnson City. They have been over-looked and under-valued by the world around them, told they have no worth or purpose. They seek this validation through behavior that causes them to be put out by society, and can often destroy their hopes of a future. This is a messy generational cycle that is often repeated if something doesn’t change. Because of Jesus, we look at a broken generation of youth and see hope, purpose, and value in them. We want to see the power of Christ’s love bring holistic change in their relationships with God, themselves, others, and all of creation.
