WHAT IS LIFE ON LIFE?
It’s easy to share the Gospel to someone, it’s much harder to share your life with someone.
Jesus did both.
Life on Life is:
Life on Life is a relationship that goes beyond the walls of a program and transcends into everyday life. It is a believer willing to get into the messiness of their mentee’s life as well as inviting the mentee into their own mess. We model our ministry after Jesus’ example. Jesus had just twelve disciples and within that group, went deeper with three. His investment and willingness to say “Come follow me” is what changed the world. Life on Life is not only the teaching of God’s word but modeling daily what it looks like to be a follower of Christ. The Holy Spirit transforms not only the mentee, but the mentor’s life through this relationship. That’s the power of God, but also the power of His method. Life on life.
Why hard places?
Jesus sought out and went towards the vulnerable even at the expense of himself. We will follow his example. We have a heart to serve the most vulnerable youth. Youth from “hard places” often experience repeated forms of abuse, neglect and/or trauma. This happens in every context such as suburban, rural and urban. These are the youth we seek to serve.
