Ministries: After God's Own Heart Program
After God’s Own Heart, is a program designed to mentor young men and women, ages 11-16, with a curriculum that includes a code of purity, financial planning, job readiness, college preparedness and martial arts/self-defense. This mentorship program will equip young men and women with the core values as expressed in the book of Daniel “Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm"(Daniel 6:3), in order to develop strong men and women of God and to equip them with a spirit of excellence.
The program will begin with an Orientation where the adults learn along with the youth participant what to expect from the program and what will be expected of them. At the orientation the parent and their child will sign a Participant Agreement. This act of commitment will help the participant know that they are supported not only by our team but by their family as well.
After God’s Own Heart will meet once a month in the six following months for a period of five hours and will culminate with a Commitment Ceremony. At the ceremony, which will be similar to a wedding, the youth participant will make a commitment to their parents to stay pure until marriage by signing a Commitment Certificate.
The other awesome benefit of the program is the inclusion of Financial Planning Training based on the word of God. Participants will learn how “Life Balance” impacts finances. This program will help the entire family! If we can teach our young people the importance keeping Christ first in their life, even in their finances, they are more likely to have a good balance in their spiritual and personal lives.
College Preparedness can never start too early so we need to get them ready! The book of Luke points out that the children of the world are craftier than the children of Light . We are the children of Light ,“And the lord commended the unjust steward, because he had done wisely: for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light”(Luke 16:8). We are the children of Light, but then, there is an answer to this as Luke says, “For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.” Furthermore, God said “I’m going to bless you so that the world dynamics will turn around for you and that the world no longer will have more advantages or access to education and wealth than we do” (Luke 21:15)
We will also have lessons in self esteem, job readiness, dressing for success, appearance and self defense.
This program is calling for the “Caleb’s” of this generation, “Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it.” (Numbers 13:30).
Come and join us, After God’s Own Heart is “More Than A Dream!”
