Back to School!

Back to School!

Happy Fall, friends-  I’m back at Biola’s Talbot Seminary for my third and (possibly) final year of grad school at the Institute of Spiritual Formation.  It’s been an incredible journey, and I’m on the edge of my seat to see where God takes all this!  Our ministry reflects the season, as well, as we wrap up a school supply drive  where we led our church in distributing almost 1,000 full backpacks  to the neediest, most vulnerable youth in our city and almost 200 Teacher Care Boxes to encourage and support our under-resourced educators.  Here’s Heidi’s smile greeting people at our display area – did I marry well or what??!

The Mentor Program

Last year, we began our mentor program with three mentors on one high school campus.  This year, we begin with almost fifty mentors on six campuses!  We pair trained, caring adult volunteers with the most at-risk students, individually and in small groups, and the effects and stories coming out of this ministry have been staggering.  Check out this video highlighting one of our mentors, other connections to our schools, and first-hand testimonies from the students themselves…

Play a part…

We’d love your prayers and need your support more than ever!  Thank you so much for joining with us on mission in however God directs.  Oh yah, and this…a tax-deductible contribution toward a great cause! Just click our PayPal button on the right >>>
