Urban Hope Youth is simply a refuge to the here and now generation. A change of the heart to be sold out for Christ and a growth in strength of faith, power, and love. People have thrown the next generation of youth to the curb, saying we aren't ready to make the world a better place. At Urban Hope Youth, we believe the opposite. That the next generation has the potential to be the generation filled with the Holy Spirit, and that the love of Christ within us produces the act of a youth rising. Our heart is to see students impacted by the love of Christ, to the point of being compelled to change the city from within. Through their own actions in their schools, their home, and their city, we believe that through the power of Christ, and the passion of our pursuit, we will see a refuge not just become a place, but a purpose that is instilled in our students. For God is our ultimate refuge, and it's in Christ that we will rise above.
