Our Vision:  Putting hope in reach of People

GOALS                                                 

The first goal of JYM is to bring hope to the hopeless. The medical profession as well as society says that addiction is an incurable disease... The failed attempts of addicts and alcoholics seem to confirm this theory. JYM, through the message of the gospel, brings hope to the addict. Addiction can be cured! Addicts can change! Without hope the addicted are left to either be destroyed by their addiction, or spend a lifetime trying to fight it, or worse simply give up. 

The second goal is to reach the hurting and bound where they are. JYM is not a building-centered ministry. We are not called to remain within the four walls of a building, be it a church or even a JYM rehab Center. We are called to go out where the need is. It is important to know the new youth subculture trends, new drugs being used, and the new places the abuser and addicts hang out. The street and drug scene is never static, but always changing, moving, and developing new faces and facets. The outreach ministry needs to move with the times and the changes. 

The third goal is to win the lost to Christ. We are not just a social program, but a Christ-centered evangelistic ministry. The goal of JYM as stated in our mission statement is as follows: The goal of JYM is to evangelize people, especially those with life-controlling problems, and to initiate the discipleship process to the point where an individual can function as a Christian in society; applying spiritually motivated biblical principles to relationships in the family, local church, chosen vocation, and the local community. JYM endeavors to help people become mentally sound, emotionally balanced, socially adjusted, physically well, and spiritually alive. 

The fourth goal is to provide a full service Christian discipleship program to each student/resident as stated in the above mission statement. JYM is not a church, it certainly is not a cult, and it is not a permanent live-in community... We prepare converts for eventual incorporation into a local body of believers. The most import aspect of JYM is not buildings or finances, but workers who dedicate themselves totally in vision,faith and compassion to reach the lost for Christ
