Our mission is to empower youth to pursue their God-given potential and step into their Kingdom calling. Our hearts burn to see youth truly know who they are in Christ and awaken them to the greatness inside of them. We claim generational chains of poverty, teen pregnancy, addiction, and abuse to be broken in the name of Jesus!

Community Relationships: We connect students to each other and to the wider community, believing our world is healthiest when diverse people know, respect, and serve each other.

Community Leadership: We empower the skills, insights, and creativity of students themselves to serve at NELA YC and other nonprofits in our community.

Core Spirituality: We guide students to establish a set of core convictions from which they can build meaningful lives.

Irresistible Fun: We embrace the spirit of youth and channel it into life-giving activities that keep kids coming back for more.

OUR VISION IS TO SEE THESE CHILDREN KNOW WHO THEY ARE IN CHRIST, BEING FILLED WITH HOLY SPIRIT AND GOING OUT TO MAKE DISCIPLES, HEAL THE SICK AND CAST OUT DEMONS! WE LOVE, TRAIN AND SEND OUT! Matthew 10:8

And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.  And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me. Matthew 18:3-5

“See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that in heaven their angels always see the face of my Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 18:10
