Downtrodden Youth Ministry
Then children were brought to him that he might lay his hands on them and pray. The disciples rebuked the people, but Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.” And he laid his hands on them and went away. (Matthew 19: 13-15)
10-4 God is a non-profit charity which ministers to downtrodden youth. These youth include all youth, but we will focus on the unloved, downtrodden, lost, forgotten, abused, troubled, without hope, and socially dismissed youth in the world. Non-profit charities for downtrodden youth are critical to make a change. We ask you to partner with us to make a big difference for the youth of our country.
Initially, 10-4 God will focus on troubled boys and later will expand to downtrodden girls.
Every day and every year that we live our lives then the following are happening in the USA:
- 19 of 10-24 years old youth commit suicide each day.
- 3,700 of 9th – 12th grade youth consider suicide each day.
- 2.3 million of 12 – 17 years old youth have at least one major depressive episode with a severe impairment.
- 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be sexually abused before they turn 18. A child gets sexually abused every 9 minutes in America!
- 69,000 orphans lives in institutions and 437,000 youth are in the US Foster Care System. Many of these children, and some of children that live with a parent(s), have never felt a parental like love.
- Many youth are or have been physically abused, have little hope, are involved in gangs and do not know where to turn, emotionally abused, caught up in deep sin, indwelled with deep hate and the list keeps going.
10-4 GOD WILL HELP SOME OF THESE YOUTH AND POSITIVELY IMPACT THEIR LIVES FOR THE GOOD OF THEMSELVES AND THE GOOD OF THE WORLD!
Mathew 25:40 ESV – And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these, my brothers, you did it to me.’
10-4 God will invite downtrodden youth (Invitees) to stay at a 10-4 God property. While at the property, they will disconnect from the troubled outside world, disconnect from information technology, learn how to work on the property, internalize the beauty of God’s creation, continue schooling as applicable, and use the property’s activities and facilities. The 10-4 God environment will be full of love and empathy. The 10-4 God staff will mentor and plant the Word of God within the Invitees’ minds and hearts. The overarching and ultimate goal of 10-4 God is to minister to each Invitee and to lead them to salvation through Christ and total submission to God the Father. Afterward, we hope that each Invitee will share their witness and the Gospel throughout the world.
This non-profit charity/ministry will cost a lot of money each year and require a lot of workers. After the initial build-out, we are projecting an operating cost of $3,000 per child per month. Consider giving now.
