We’re excited to invite 30,000 people from 1,500 churches into meaningful service-learning experiences hosted by 362 YouthWorks staff in 72 communities across the continent. This summer, we’ll spend 80 days inviting students and families into the stories of each of those communities. We’ll put on 500 community cookouts, empty 5,000 boxes of Mac & Cheese and devour 85,000 Oreos.
But of all the numbers we can attach to Summer 2017, our favorite number is one:
That one conversation.
That one meaningful connection.
That one student who finally gets it.
That one moment that changes all the moments that come after.
In 2017, we hope one week with YouthWorks will further the ongoing ministry you do year-round as you point students to the One who changes everything.
For all the right reasons, may 2017 be one to remember.
So from all of us at YouthWorks, Happy New Year!
