Mission & Vision
At GRIP Outreach For Youth, our mission is to reach & connect at-risk youth to Christian, life-on-life mentors and develop them holistically in Jesus Christ to the glory of God.
We have a vision for thousands upon thousands of kids to grow into solid Christian adults who will positively impact and contribute to society, their communities, their churches, and their families. More specifically we want to see:
- Thousands of transformed lives
- Transformed cities
- Strong local churches
- Solid schools
- Future leaders for Christ
- Centers of excellence for urban ministry
This is a holistic vision. We're striving to create a network of support for our youth, not simply by serving them and their families in the home, but also by partnering with local churches in our outreach programs, and by having a presence in the public schools, where our youth spend the majority of their time.
What Do These Symbols Mean?
As you look through our website, you'll notice icons that categorize the areas of service for each of our programs and resources, and how they connect to our mission, vision, and model of ministry. We hope they will give you a better understanding of GRIP and what we stand for.
