Jesus ‘N The Hood

Jesus 'N The Hood
WHAT:  Jesus N’ the Hood  is a week-long outreach program where we encourage current Hope for Youth students to bring their friends and siblings to introduce them to the ministry.  We also reach out to apartment complexes and partner ministries to invite them. The program is high-energy and packed with nonstop fun, fellowship, and food.  Each night is highlighted by Christian artist, a message and small group discussion.  It is our most attended program and is a favorite for youth and volunteers!
WHO: Adult volunteers are needed to help make this week a success.  If you would like more info, please check out the contact info on the flyer and//or fill out the volunteer application online. All volunteers are background checked prior to serving. VOLUNTEER TRAINING/INFO NIGHT: Thursday, May 30th from 6:30-8PM at the Hope for Youth office – 2605 Reed Road. 
WHEN: June 3rd thru 7th from 6:30-9PM each night
WHERE: City of Refuge Church @ 3150 Yellowstone Blvd. in Houston
THEME: SQUAD – Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

SQUAD – the term refers to the select group of friends that we hold closest.

Those that we hold closest to us are those that influence us the most, they are the ones that can help us when we are weak.  They are the ones that we lean on when we are in our lowest moments.  The times when we are in those dark places, when we need accountability, and wise counsel.  During the tug of war that takes place in our hearts and minds between doing the right thing and the opposite – often times we gain leverage, additional strength and the upper hand from our Squad.  So, it only makes sense that we make sure that our youth have the best Squad out there.
