Give Life to your Story.

It's a declaration we believe: Jesus came to give life to the stories of young people. We give life as we engage each teen we meet in a relationship that demonstrates and declares the love of Jesus Christ.
As we grow, so will our programs to meet the unique needs of the youth community. Below is information about our current, active ministries

  • Campus Life staff and volunteers meet students on their school campus and provide weekly clubs that create a fun and safe environment for youth to find answers to the challenges they face every day. We are active on several Middle and High School campuses from Venice to Manatee with the goal of being on every campus as God provides leaders and open doors. CLICK HERE to learn more about Campus Life.

  • JJM seeks to engage young people as they are met in a variety of youth-serving institutions (detention centers, probation, correctional facilities, group homes, residential treatment centers and emergency shelters).  These valued relationships are sustained through ongoing involvement as they reenter their communities. CLICK HERE to learn more about JJM.

  • Girl Talk is a fun, faith-based mentoring program for middle school girls designed to build self-worth and promote wise choices. Through games, crafts, discussion, snacks, movie clips and prizes, girls gain confidence, make positive friends, and learn to view themselves with the incredible sense of acceptance and value that Gods sees within them. Generously sponsored by Youth for Christ, Girl Talk also creates groups for 5th grade and high school girls. CLICK HERE to learn more about Girl Talk.

  • The 180 House is a place where youth can come to connect with their peers, engage in inter-generational relationships, and learn the tools to navigate through the challenges of life.  We are using surfing, skating, sports and the arts as a common interest to engage and teach youth about the love of Christ.  Our mission is to use community volunteers to get involved in the life of local teens and help them grow in their faith. We are engaging with teens at three locations - Venice, Sarasota, Bradenton. CLICK HERE to learn more about 180 House.

  • Parent Life reaches expectant and parenting teens and their children through intentional relationships with trained adults and community partnerships, empowering the teens to make good choices and encouraging them to further their education and move toward independent living and become life-long followers of Jesus Christ.
