A haven is known as a place of safety. Safety is good, but many times safety can also create dependence. Here at the Haven we desire students to feel safe to come as they are, but leave feeling ready to live courageously outside our walls.
SOUL RISEN, SOUL DRIVEN.
Rising to an aerial perspective gives us a picture of life that the view from the ground just can't duplicate. It's the same with our soul! When a person depends on Christ, their soul's position rises from a ground-level perspective to an aerial one and the result is amazing. They find much more than hope for their own situation—they provide hope for others who are still on the ground, hence, "SOUL RISEN, SOUL DRIVEN".
SPIRITUAL PARENTS FOR A SPIRITUALLY ORPHANED GENERATION.
Sadly, many parents are not passing down the truth that is in Christ to their children because they are spiritual orphans themselves. Knowing that today's teens are less knowledgeable about Christ, we have decided to use this to our advantage. You may be asking, how? Since so many teens know very little about Christ, they don't have many preconceived ideas about Him. They are a blank canvas ready and willing to see and hear the truth, something they are starving for. Our leadership team has made it their mission to stand in the gap as spiritual parents for the teens who come through our doors.
PARTNERING WITH GODLY PARENTS TO HELP LAY THE FOUNDATION.
We are most excited when we see parents take steps to lead godly lives and walk alongside their teenagers. We never want to replace parents who are doing this—we desire to labor with them as the foundation is being laid. YOU ARE AN INSPIRATION!
