When you give to Youth-Reach Gulf Coast (YRGC), you’re not only supporting the life-changing 24/7, 365 day-a-year services we offer young men, but you’re also positively impacting our local communities in the name of Jesus.
We stretch every dollar given by our supporters to make the most change possible in our own YRGC family as well as in our own backyard. Here are some of the ways we’re bringing the glory of God to our local community.
We recently supported a prayer luncheon at the courthouse in Summerdale, Alabama participating in their 29th Annual Day of Prayer. Based on 2 Corinthians 3:17 which says, “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty,” this year’s theme was “Lord, Pour Out Your Liberty.”
Community members including municipal, business and church leaders who came together to pray over our families and country.
ReImagine Worldwide is a missions organization that not only builds homes and brings relief in Peru, but also distributes food and brings positive change locally in Pensacola, Florida.
Every other month, our staff and residents serve food with ReImagine, assist with AIDS testing, and help with their clothing giveaways.
Our young men deliver food donated to YRGC every other Tuesday to our local Greenwood community. We are grateful to have the privilege of helping to feed those in need including many elderly people and widows.
“For you have been called to live in freedom, my brothers and sisters. But don’t use your freedom to satisfy your sinful nature. Instead, use your freedom to serve one another in love.” – Galatians 5:13
We try to love and lead people around us by serving, and that means doing our best to improve the community.
We regularly clean up the roadside, picking up trash and debris along three miles of County Road 38. This investment in community beautification enhances the appeal of our area and demonstrates to those nearby how much we value them.
The young men in our YRGC family are quick to respond in times of need. We love to be on the scene, helping in every way possible after disaster strikes.
Hurricane season begins in June going through November and we are ready to help in the event of a storm.
If you’d like to be a part of the work we do in these dire circumstances, please consider designating a gift to our Disaster Relief efforts.
Thank you to every one of our supporters who helps make it possible for us to help build strong men of God through our ministry who, in turn, give back to our community through there service while a resident of YRGC and afterwards. Your impact is eternal and far exceeds that of just those who are a part of our ministry.
