Outreach addresses the eternal needs of a child.
Children in their formative years are extremely receptive spiritually. In fact, 80% of all decisions for Christ occur between ages 4-14.
When a child is reached and carefully nurtured to follow Christ they make better choices in life and avoid costly mistakes that can derail their chances for success in life.
Emerge supports ministry partners like Joann Luciano’s, Sidewalk Ministries, that takes the gospel to the streets in some of the toughest barrios in Manila. Each week 9,000+ children are personally engaged through volunteers who lead outreaches in nearly 100 centers throughout South Manila. These children grow up surrounded by defeat and squalor, locked into generational poverty until the day when young people wearing blue t-shirts walk into their lives with the gospel and an entirely new vision for their lives.
