Maple Leaf After School Club - Brick, NJ
In the spring of 2013, several churches came together to help the children who live at the Maple Leaf Apartments in Brick, NJ. The volunteers in this ministry provide homework tutoring, offer a meal, and share the love of Jesus Christ as they serve these children. The ministry has taken off and lives have been changed. If you would like to get involved with our members who serve, please contact the Calvary Presbyterian Church Office @ firstname.lastname@example.org Or if you would like more information visit: http://stepoffaithministry.org
Youth With a Mission - "Calling All Skaters" Why Skateboarders?
Over the last 6 years I have been devoted to reaching skateboarders with the Gospel of Jesus. I have recognized my passion for skateboarding as a tool from God, that I can use to make Him known to the nations. The Lord has provoked my heart and opened my eyes to the great spiritual need within this unique culture. I use skateboarding as a platform from which I can establish relationships, share the Gospel and raise up disciples of Jesus who will continue on to do the same in their skateboarding communities. Everyone on earth needs to hear the true gospel, this includes skateboarders!
I will be serving in Barcelona with Calling All Skaters, an international ministry with the vision of representing Jesus Christ in the skateboarding community worldwide. I will be joining a team of missionaries who are pioneering skateboarding ministry in Europe. Serving with this team I will follow the simple strategy presented below:
Connect through outreach, Disciple through relationship, Train to teach, Develop to lead.
Psalm 96:3 "Declare His glory among the nations, His wonders among all peoples."
