"Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world." James 1:27
The vision of the 127 home tours is to bring hope and encouragement to the lives of students and children who need it. While many of the teenagers and children who reside at the children's homes are not technically "orphans," they are in life experiences that need the rescue of Jesus over their life and days. There due to the incarceration of their parents, poverty, abuse (physical and other), gross neglect, even some who have been rescued from sex trafficking, our hope is to be another voice, partnering with their administrators and "house parents" declaring the rescue and redemption Jesus brings.
what we will be doing?
We will be spending three days at each home. With us will be our full production set-up, as we will engage in 5 worship services over three days. During the mid-day hours we will be offering a ministry of "atmospheres" that will allow us to have one-on-one interaction with the children, students, and house parents.
You Can Help
Go: We are always looking for Sr. High and College students who are will to take two weeks out of their summer to help us bring the rescue of Jesus to hard places! Click on the "How To Go" link at the very bottom of this page to learn how.
Donate: We have been offering this tour along with other youth conferences and community events since 2004. Much of our equipment is no longer serviceable. Years on the road can be a bit rough on the stuff. So we need your help in replacing our touring PA. (sound system) rig and our front lighting rig. The PA. needs to be replaced in the next few weeks. The need is $7200. The lighting rig, projectors, stage hardware pieces, and vocal microphones also need replacing by early December. The need is $6000+. To help make this happen, you can click on the "Donate" link at the very bottom of this page.
