Our Christian mandate

2. Provide a safe place for young people to develop Christian character and receive an excellent education – “…making the very most of your time [on earth, recognizing and taking advantage of each opportunity and using it with wisdom and diligence], because the days are [filled with] evil.” Ephesians 5:16
3. To help train young people in the way they should go – Train up a child in the way he should go [and in keeping with his individual gift or bent], and when he is old he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6
