LA News -- March 25th

Updated: Mar 25

Founder's Note

Spring is always a beautiful time. It reminds us of new life, new opportunities, and fresh starts. We can't help but think of God's redemption and the new life He wants to bring forth in each of us. He makes ALL THINGS new. One of the most important things we must remember about our students is that they are each on a journey that requires we extend grace as God works in them. Each student must be given the gift of space to become NEW in the Lord. We cannot lock them into their last mistake or even a difficult season. Our discipline, correction, encouragement, and care must all be designed to help them become more like Christ and to help them escape the devastating evils of sin for a victorious life in Christ.

God is at work in their hearts and we must cooperate with Him to help each of them become who they are designed to be. We want them to discover God's love for them, the redemption that only comes through Jesus, and the beauty of living an authentic, righteous life. As the adults in their lives we must see the bright and hopeful future for them by faith. We have to help them see who they can become in Him and we create the space and culture for them to become NEW.
