Agape recently accepted 3 new members to our Gateway Residential Program: Jason Montgomery, Meggan McKinley, Nicolette Powe. For the next year, these young adults will be challenged to grow into a healthy, Christian independence. In the Gateway program, residents participate in spiritual retreats, household chores, positive peer relationships, guidance from staff, and informative workshops. This year, an additional requirement has been added. Each resident will choose an Agape ministry to serve weekly. They will assume responsibilities and be held accountable for the programs. Residents have chosen children, tweens, sports, and food pantry activities for their service.
This avenue for giving back has been rewarding for the residents and powerful for our neighborhood’s strengthening process. Agape looks forward to adding more Gateway residents and graduates to the ministry teams. Please pray that residents will face their fears and be open for change. Pray that our staff will minister with wisdom and care.
