New Horizons Ministries desires to promote spiritual growth in the impressionable time of youth is evident by the final phrase in our mission statement that is to “provide programs and experiences for our staff members that foster spiritual and personal growth.” Our desire is to develop biblical convictions that will last a lifetime. Deciding to voluntarily give of your time has a lasting, positive effect on your life. For many of our volunteers, coming to service is the first they have spent extended time away from home and family and is an important time of discovering their own identity and convictions. Volunteers have many opportunities to relate with youth from different communities and backgrounds. Our staff is very committed to encouraging spiritual and personal growth in the lives of our volunteers.
