To Win Urban Youth To Christ

We partner with ministries, agencies, schools and churches to foster community and build stability in order to meet the spiritual, physical and emotional needs of kids in the city.
We are a 501(c)(3)

The Crisis

Young people in the inner city desperately lack spiritual, relational and emotional guidance.

The UYE team helps urban youth reach their full potential. We provide our youth with the tools and resources they need to pursue their dreams, and we can help them gain the wisdom and knowledge to reach their goals. We also provide them with the courage and strength to take risks and make changes in their life. We can help them find balance in life and help them develop a positive attitude. We can help them discover and use their gifts and talents, and we can assist our kids to become a better version of themselves.

Comfort. Joy. Love.

Jesus can make a difference in your life in many ways, from providing comfort in the midst of suffering to helping you reach your full potential. Jesus can help you find a sense of purpose in life, offer hope in difficult times, and provide guidance in everyday decisions. He can teach you how to love and be loved, and provide a sense of peace and joy that only comes from knowing Him.
