April’s Mission of the Month is a life-changing ecumenical ministry in our own backyard. YouthHope, a ministry of Christian Friendliness, ministers to low-income youth weekly through after-school activities, a Christian youth camp, and other youth services.
Although their primary focus is the underprivileged areas of our community, their mission encompasses the community as a whole. YouthHope believes that sharing Christ with people is the main ingredient in meeting their needs.
YouthHope/Christian Friendliness maintains two centers in the Quad Cities, one in Rock Island and the other in Moline. It also maintains Camp Summit, a Christian camp in New Windsor.
