Our Vision

Imagine...

Imagine a national landscape full of kids being mentored and coached to know the Lord and walk in His ways. Imagine a country led by leaders who grew up in such a youth culture. The 2:8 Association is committed to working tirelessly towards these goals so that the future generations of this country can raise their children in a place that is not antagonistic to the things of God.

The Current Situation...

Today's version of youth ministry is not working! We are compelled to gather a lot of kids and "entertain" them inside the walls of a designated youth room and declare that life-transforming youth ministry is happening. Studies show that over 65% of today's churched youth are leaving home and never returning to the church. What happens in our country, to our civilization, when the institutions of family, business, education, government and church are being led by leaders who have abandoned their God?

Where We Want to Go...

Additional studies are also emerging showing that real life-transformation is happening where mentoring/coaching relationships are occurring in the lives of today's teens. A ministry model that is characterized by these types of relationships is finding the most success in kids living their faith out beyond their homes and families. So, what does that mean? We are calling all "influencers" to come together to make an impact in ways that are sustaining. We hope that you will join us at The 2:8 Association in this critical cause to raise up a generation of young people that will preserve God's ways in this country and in turn, allow us to assist you.
