February Difference Maker: GRIP Outreach For Youth

GRIP

At GRIP Outreach For Youth, we realize that the only thing that can fill the void in the life of a fatherless child is the love of God the Father. As a result, GRIP’s mission is to break the fatherless cycle through Christ-centered, Life-on-Life relationships.

Today For the First Time

In 2004, GRIP Outreach For Youth launched as a local ministry reaching fatherless teens in Chicago’s notorious Cabrini Green Housing Projects. Today, we’ve grown in size and scope, as we have developed many training tools and urban ministry resources that are being used globally.

Our Life-on-Life approach builds a network of support for our young people: engaging them in their homes, serving them in their schools, plugging them into local churches, and providing them with practical resources for their development. When we refer to Life-on-Life, we are talking about a relationship that is so much more than mentorship. Life-on-Life relationships model what it means to be a man or woman of God – not just during a program or in a classroom – but while at home, running errands, playing sports, serving others in the community, or studying the Bible. And as we walk life together, we’re extending to our youth an invitation to know the love of God, to know their purpose and identity, and to grow as young leaders in their homes, schools, churches, and communities.

In addition to ministry on the frontlines here in Chicago, GRIP now trains churches and organizations across the country to implement GRIP’s programs and resources with their own volunteers and youth within their communities, multiplying Life-on-Life impact both here locally in Chicago and across the country.
