Mission Statement


It is the mission of New Horizons Youth Ministry to foster spiritual growth and character building in high potential, at risk youth through therapeutic Christian education in a boarding school environment.

Description


New Horizons Youth Ministries operates year-round Christian boarding schools in two locations: Marion, Indiana and the Dominican Republic. We also operate a wilderness-based summer camp in Ontario, Canada and a service-oriented summer camp in the Dominican Republic. Our focus at all of our locations is on working with at-risk American teens, most of which come from Christian homes and have, for one reason or another, chosen to reject their family's faith and value system. New Horizons Youth Ministries does unique work with bright, under-achieving adolescents. Our combination of program locations and emphasis on a therapeutic Christian education places this ministry in a classification of its very own. At each of our locations our mission is to provide an environment where students are kept from the negative pressures of the world and given a chance to get on their feet physically, emotionally, and spiritually. We do this by providing a structured environment where warm, redemptive relationships can be built with our staff. We have a strong emphasis on teaching teamwork, responsibility, and respect for authority. It is imperative that our staff members have the ability to role model Christ-like character to our students.

Organizational Statement of Faith


We believe the Bible is God's Word, that it was written by men, Divinely inspired and is the Christian's supreme, infallible authority in all matters of faith and conduct. We believe in God the Father, perfect in holiness, infinite in wisdom, measureless in power. We rejoice that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men, that He hears and answers prayer and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ. We believe Jesus Christ is divine, the second person of the holy Trinity, the eternal and only begotten Son of God, conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, sinless in life, making atonement for the sins of the world by His death. We believe in His bodily resurrection, His ascension and His visible return to the world according to His promise. We believe in the Holy Spirit who came forth from God to convince the world of sin, of righteousness and of judgment and to regenerate, empower, sanctify and comfort those who receive Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior.
