Our main goal is to see souls saved and to assist the parents of our youth in training them to live a surrendered life for Jesus Christ. We allow our teens to accomplish these goals by giving them opportunities through visitation, inviting friends to services and evangelistic activities. One of the greatest tools we use to keep the teens on fire for God is the summer camp. The teens have a great time and always get a Spiritual uplift. We also have a café and game room, which serves as a place for supervised socialization in a Christian environment. We also have a Kid’s wing for children. There, we conduct special programs for children.

He attended Champion Baptist College in Hot Springs, Arkansas for a year working in the bus ministry there. He now attends Baptist Institute of America. Our goal in the bus ministry is to reach boys and girls for Christ and to provide transportation to church for kids, teenagers, and adults who would not be able to attend otherwise. We endeavor to do our best to reach our community for Christ.
