ABOUT PARISH/ SCHOOL/ ORGANIZATION

The Domestic Church in the United States is in dire need of more disciples answering their baptismal call to mission. Our young people are falling into even higher numbers of loneliness, anxiety, and depression and distancing themselves from God. The physical and spiritual isolation and poverty is obvious, but not many are willing to meet our young people where they are at and accompany them during the most formative years of their lives. It only takes one stable and caring adult to change a teen’s life.

At Adore Ministries, we know how critical it is to be that caring adult in this time and in this culture, and that when people are empowered to answer this call, it can happen joyfully in a multitude of ways. All of our focus, energy and resources are directed towards supporting missionaries and helping make domestic mission both possible and sustainable. By providing training, formation and peer to peer accompaniment, we are walking side-by-side with this great work and bold people who have answered this call to mission.
