Youth Ministry

Rock-youth-in-gym
 

Off for the Summer!

On Tuesday nights during the Chicago school year, Anthony Brookins opens the gym 7th thru 12th graders from the Austin Neighborhood.

The program runs from 6:45 to 8:30 pm–the doors are closed at 7 pm.

Besides the activities in the gym, Anthony also leads a Bible Study.

These youth come from a difficult environment:

  • 40% of Austin residents are high-school drop-outs.
  • 38% of Austin children are living in poverty.
  • 22% of Austin households are headed by a single mother.

Young males turn to gangs for something to do and a place to belong.

This program offers them an alternative.
