Dear Friends of the Factory,
As we step into 2019, we are encouraged by the continued growth we are seeing at The Factory Ministries. We are pleased to announce that we have engaged the services of The North Group to serve in an interim director role as we shape the future story of The Factory. We anticipate that our partners at The North Group will provide valuable leadership during this time of transition, walking together with us to help this ministry continue to grow. As we look to the coming year, we are filled with hope. We believe, as you do, in the vital role The Factory Ministries plays in our community, impacting so many lives in meaningful ways. We and the Factory staff are so grateful for your ongoing support. We appreciate you!
– The Factory Ministries Board
At The Factory Ministries, we believe that everyone’s journey matters! Our social services department provides a relational and caring environment where adults who are under-resourced and struggling with poverty-related issues can find hope and help as they navigate through life.
Life as a teenager is not easy, and difficulties increase significantly for students who live in under-resourced environments. The youth center strives to provide a safe place for teens to connect with one another, get support and help from safe adult staff, and learn to overcome life’s obstacles knowing that God has their back and loves them unconditionally.
One of the ways we empower individuals to strengthen their community is by equipping them with information. The Factory Ministries facilitates community trainings and group consultations designed to put you in the driver’s seat of learning: discovering and experiencing the real issues of poverty, exploring true community collaboration, understanding leadership vision casting, and more.
