“Let your unfailing love surround us, Lord, for our hope is in you alone.” Psalms 33:22

“I share the gospel because it is life changing and powerful! I know the kids I serve have many needs, most that I cannot meet, but what I can give them is the opportunity to have a relationship with Jesus. The gospel is a better gift than one million dollars and I believe it is the greatest need each of us has!”

Charles Washington, MAM Hamilton Director



“I share the gospel for two reasons. First, in our neighborhood I am constantly reminded of our mortality and the fact that we are not promised tomorrow. Any student could suddenly be gone, so the urgency of the gospel is very real. Second, our students often have hard and overwhelming situations that I can’t fix. But I can offer them the good news of Jesus Christ. One day He will fix the bad stuff forever (heaven), but He also cares RIGHT NOW and is able to comfort them, give them strength and even provide for them amid the hard.”

Sarah Gilmore, MAM Leawood Assistant Director


“I share the gospel with our kids because I want them to know that they can always lean and depend on the Lord Jesus. He loves them unconditionally, no matter what they do or say. Jesus shows the kids how much He loves them and wants them to have new life in Him. I want them to understand that is why He sacrificed His life on the cross.”

BJ Wade, MAM Bethel LaBelle Director



“Our kids are inundated with entertainment and recreation that pull their hearts away from God. Virtually everything they are exposed to is hostile to the gospel. The burden on my heart to share Jesus with our kids and their families overwhelms me during this critical time in our world. Scripture says, ‘For there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.’ So I preach the person and work of Jesus Christ knowing that the gospel is the power of God for salvation and will not return void. Witnessing those kids who come to a saving knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ is what keeps me at MAM.”

Jeff Cage, MAM Leawood Director

“John 17:3 says, ‘Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the one true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.’ In Matthew 28, Jesus has given authority to his disciples to go and make more disciples, and as a Christian, a disciple maker, I have a desire that our students come to know Jesus and that through Him, they may have eternal life.”
