What is Kidz in the ’Hood?

We are primarily a ministry for children and youth in our neighborhood.  We host a bible study three times a week that is geared toward our younger brothers and sisters.  We strive to build healthy relationships with the children and youth that come to our ministry by walking with them through life and striving to see them succeed spiritually, emotionally, socially and academically and to develop into the leaders that God has made them to be.

As we get to know the children, we also build relationships with their families and seek ways in which to support the whole family spiritually and physically.

The services that we provide fall into the programs described below.
