“Beloved, [ because ] God so loves us, we also ought to love one another.” 1 John 4:11
OTU is simply the phonetic spelling of ‘ought to’. Seeing this daily is a reminder to encourage and equip youth and families to seek a relationship with Jesus and express His transformative love for one another.
Our family serves year-round to encourage and equip youth and families.
After-school, we meet with 5th and 6th graders, I work with developing leaders to transform their schools.
In our community, our family works with youth, 6th-12th grade, to build relationships, share the Gospel, and equip students with their growing faith.
Operating alongside the school and community programs, we connect with refugee and migrant families to provide food and resources similar to a CSA but at no cost to the families. It is through these actions that we express God’s love, share His incredible story, and equip youth and families to “abide in [His] Word” (John 8:31).
