We see the revitalization of downtown Johnson City happening all around us; new parks built, old buildings made new, businesses and restaurants have opened. LXI has been a part of this work since 2010 by revitalizing the lives of young people who live close to the city center.
Our focus this summer is Be Transformed. We want to see our youth changed from the inside out by God renewing their way of thinking, worldview, and desires through His transforming power. The heart of this vision comes from Romans 12:2: “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
Over this past year, God has taught us to depend on Him. He has shown us that the work of changing hearts is His alone. We need your help to be able to continue serving this community of young people. Since LXI began, we have operated under budget. We have big plans and ideas on how we can better reach youth with the Gospel, but have been limited by a lack of funds. Will you consider joining us in faith by supporting us financially? Through your support we can continue to bring healing into broken families.
God blessed us with amazing interns and youth leaders, and we have had an amazing summer together as a family! Check out what God has been doing in LXI this summer, and join us as we look ahead to where He is leading us this next year. Thank you for your love and support!
Thank you to everyone who prayed and gave to help meet our summer need! Pray with us as we head to Doe River Gorge Camp this Sunday! Check out some pictures from our June adventures in serving and discipleship!
This summer, we hope to take a group of students deeper in their walk with God by first identifying the students in our community that have an open heart towards Jesus. Over the spring and summer we will intentionally invest in them and in the fall, send them back as unlikely missionaries to their school campuses.....
