A Distinctive Way to Love & Serve Our City
Mayor Suthers met with a group of 200 pastors and ministry leaders earlier this week. The question was posed, “How can the Church better love and serve our city?” To which Mayor Suthers listed four items that cannot be solved by local or federal government alone, but demands the engagement of believers:
1. Addressing homelessness
2. Addressing drug addiction and abuse
3. Adopting local schools
4. Providing mentors for our youth
I have highlighted item #4, because Southern Colorado YFC has been the primary influence of Christian mentors for incarcerated youth in our community for 17 years!
It is a privilege to become part of the SOCO YFC team with one focused task – spread the story of the great ministry of YFC all across Southern Colorado!
The Mayor knows that what we are doing is vital! And you know that YFC is vital! And we want everyone to know!
Please help us spread the word:
And mostly – THANK YOU! For being part of meeting such a vital ministry in our city! As Mayor Suthers closed his speech, “Our goal is to create a society that matches the beauty of our scenery!”
We agree and are pleased to be part of the solution!
