Pro Deo Youth Center

I met with one of the Executive Directors of Pro Deo Youth Center today and thought I would share about it.  From their website- Pro Deo has been called by many a "teen refuge". Pro Deo is an intentional community which exists to co-journey with young adults to encourage character development empowering them to reach personal goals to positively influence their generation.  
They are making a difference with teens in our community.  They have several things going on right now-
Homework help- Mon-Fri
Life group/Mentoring
Family dinner on Tuesday nights
Leadership Development
Thursday night hangout
Fun Fridays
They serve weekly 40 kids a meal and reach between 150-200 teens.  Kylie Ewing was a youth director at Grace my first year here.  She is an amazing Christian who has a passion for helping those in need.  She and her husband Andy are the directors of this ministry.  They are doing something profound.  They are seeking to reach teens that other don't reach so well.  If you would like to help, they are a non-profit (tax deductible if you give), please contact them or me.  Send money to:
Pro Deo Youth Center
PO Box 6742
Lee's Summit, MO 64064
Pray for them as they continue to reach out and help those in great need.  They are an example to all Christians of what missional focus and sacrifice are all about for the next generation.  Please prayerfully consider helping them today!
Go in peace and go with God.
