InsideOut Youth


For many of Springfield’s youth, days can become filled with the temptation of drugs, crime, hopelessness and despair. It doesn’t have to be this way.  As advocates of at-risk youth, we actively reach out to and work with individuals and their families to turn despair into hope and broken dreams into bright futures.

The Inside Out Youth Program began as a bible study in the founder’s living room in 1998. This is still an important aspect of our ministry. Each Saturday evening, area youth may attend a youth service, open from 6:30-10 PM.  Kids also participate in basketball and other fun activities while connecting with one another, as well as with adults, in a safe and healthy environment. There is always a bible-based message, very much like a youth church. This is often followed by a free meal and activities. Here, youth are able to forge positive relationships with staff and volunteers who care about them, pray with them and for them, and help them connect the chaos in their lives to the divine order found in God’s Word.

In addition to Saturday youth group, Inside Out Youth is open each weekday from 4:00 to 8:00 PM
