Mission Statement

We are committed to uplifting teens’ faith with a Biblical foundation to rise above the temptations of our culture. We work to pave the way to a brighter future for teens desiring to live a life serving Jesus Christ.

Our Vision

We exist to serve teens, parents, educators and youth leaders.

Our focus is to equip Christian students with Biblical truth in a format and language that relates to their generation. We are a springboard for students in the pursuit of lives filled with joy and express the love of God in every endeavor. We accomplish this through partnering with youth pastors, parents, and Christian educators. We provide Bible-based curriculum, parent resources, and nationally recognized Christian speakers to help these groups teach Christ-like values to teens.

We share the gospel of Jesus Christ in all we do, pointing students to the life-giving choice of making Christ their Lord and Savior.


Statement of Faith

Life Transformation

We believe a growing, personal relationship with Christ enables total and radical life-change. Regardless of past choices or life circumstances, everyone who receives Christ receives freedom from their past mistakes, liberty from their previous captivity, and the ability to live more and more like Christ each day (Ephesians 4:13; Colossians 1:28).

Authority of Scripture

We believe all Scripture is divinely inspired and serves as the final authority in all matters of belief and behavior. Therefore, we value Bible-centered teaching as the foundation for all that we do (2 Tim. 3:16-17; 2 Ptr. 1:20-21).

Youth Leaders

We believe it is the responsibility of the entire body of Christ to serve and teach the next generation. Therefore, as part of that body, we partner with Youth Pastors to provide youth groups with life-changing, bible-centered curriculum and speakers (John 8:32; Psalm 27:11).


We believe parents are the number one influencers of their children’s attitudes and behaviors. Therefore, we provide parents the tools and information they need to guide their children in pursuing and navigating the challenges they face on a daily basis. We desire to equip parents to guide their teens through a sexualized and technology-driven culture. Through parent programs and resources, we meet parents where they are by providing them a Biblical understanding of risk behaviors so that they are equipped to instruct their children and cultivate an informed, grace-based environment within their families (Proverbs 22:6; Ephesians 6:4).


We believe Christian schools and educators have an important role in the education, development and discipleship of the next generation of Christian scholars. Therefore, we assist Christian educators with resources and speakers to expand the school’s ability to shape the whole person of their students into responsible and effective Christ followers (Deut. 6:4-7).
