Stand in the Gap Missouri

We are seeing God at work in Springfield, Missouri where we are partnering local churches with the Boys and Girls Town of Missouri to provide spiritual families for kids aging out of foster care. This is one of the great needs in America... to come along side kids who are ages 17 & 18 and are aging out of the custodial foster care programs. There is an estimated 20,000 such kids across the country each year. We are recruiting and training Spiritual Family teams, and teams of 2 for a new project we call the Breakfast Club to relate to kids ages 15 & 16 who will soon be in the aging out category. Everyone involved is exciting and anticipating God-sized outcomes from this new expression of the Stand in the Gap model.
