Fathers in the Field
50% of our country’s children (25 million kids under 18) are growing up fatherless
Children from fatherless homes account for:
- 63% of youth suicides
- 72% of adolescent murders
- 60% of rapists
- 90% of runaway or homeless kids
- 85% of youth sitting in prisons
- 71% of high school dropouts
- 75% of teens in drug treatment
BUT there is hope! Grace Bible has joined Fathers in the Field ministries (www.fathersinthefield.com) to reach boys in our community that do not have a father figure involved in their lives to provide them with a Godly mentor. We have formed a team of Church Champions and Mentors but are in need of your help. You can support this ministry through prayer, identifying potential boys and mentors, as well as service projects and fun events that the mentors and their field buddies can do together. Or you can prayerfully consider joining us as a Church Champion or Mentor.
If you are interested, contact your Church Champions Glenn Wilson (662) 832-4601, CP Hanson (662) 832-3834, or Brittany Smith (601) 953-9789.
