Centred on Christ | Called to the Mission
Committed to Relationship | Seriously Fun
How we live out the above core values today looks very different this past year, but our heart, mission, and vision remain the same. We want every youth to experience the Hope found in Jesus and the Wholeness He brings.
All donations raised through our Golf Tournament will be supporting:
Our General Operations budget. It sounds boring - but this is what keeps our organization going. Remember when we were all out of toilet paper a short while ago? We didn't realize it was essential until we didn't have it. Our general budget is essential - it provides resources for our staff like training, books and courses. It provides stability for our staff who are struggling with funding and provides necessary items like paying our bills, office furniture, mail-outs and more!
