About Ground Zero Ministries
As a partner of Ground Zero, we want to share a few critical updates with you. We are feeling pressed on many levels from COVID-19 and could really use your help.
So here’s the reality…
God is still on the throne. His promises are true. His love is everlasting. He is in control. AMEN!! While we know this is true, if we can be very honest and vulnerable, this is a scary time for us. In April, Ground Zero will take a financial loss of approximately $150,000 because we had to postpone The Dragon Boat Festival, our biggest fundraiser of the year. We have secured a new date for August 22nd (thank you Jesus) and we feel great about that!! But, this does not help us now as we are facing a serious cash flow shortage and limited reserves. We have bills to pay, staff who rely on us for paychecks and hundreds of local youth who benefit from GZ programming.
We are earnestly praying that God will perform a miracle and bring the resources we need and fast! We know everyone is being impacted, but if you can do anything to help GZ out financially, we’d greatly appreciate it! Everything helps…no gift is too small.
Ground Zero is place where every teenager can GO, BELONG and GROW. Through life-changing experiences and nurturing relationships, we make a positive impact in the lives of today’s teenagers, cultivating their faith and transforming their futures.
We do this through a three-part, integrated approach:
1. Reach: Through high-energy events and unforgettable experiences, we capture the attention of teenagers and introduce them to Christ.
2. Equip: We nurture and cultivate the faith of the teenagers we reach, deepening our relationship with them and their relationship with Christ.
3. Send: Finally, we train teenagers to be leaders, creating opportunities for them to serve and sending them out to make a difference.
In all we do, we impact the lives of teenagers, so they can impact the world.
