As we reviewed the programs and events of the 2017 (including our race series and HoopsFest), we realized that throughout this year, we have been able to touch close to 6,000 lives in big and small ways. We are so thankful for your support via finances, time, energy, and prayers! Hundreds of people like yourself willingly gave of their time and resources to impact this next generation. …and there was so much fruit!

We believe 2018 will be just as impacting as we focus on renovation projects in the Armory. The project to renovate the upstairs gathering room at the Armory is a big step to drive forward our mission to help youth find purpose. It will serve as an amazing training and equipping hub for Dauntless teens to be called out of wandering and into a life of purpose!
As 2017 draws to a close, would you consider giving towards this project? Again, our goal is to raise $12,000 to be able to complete that room. Your gift can truly make a difference!
Thank you again for your past and future support! We are honored & inspired to do more!
May 2018 be a year of revived purpose and deep impact!
Many blessings to you in the New Year!
