LIVING MISSIONALLY: Kids Hope Mentorship Program about to begin at NHCC!

Kids Hope USA ( builds life-changing relationships one at a time: One Child. One Hour. One School. One Church.

Over two decades ago, Dr. Virgil Gulker researched a question that led to Kids Hope USA’s launch: How can churches have the greatest impact on America’s at-risk children?

Kids Hope USA has come to Wausau, Wisconsin!  One Child. One Hour. One School (Hewitt-Texas Elementary School). One Church (New Hope Community).

New Hope Community Church eagerly anticipates the kick-off of Kids Hope USA right here in Wausau.  Being the first in our area, we can’t wait to see the positive results from this mentorship program.  Our trained mentors are carefully partnered with at-risk children at one local school.  And, how amazing would it be to see Kids Hope grow as  other area congregations partner with more schools and change the lives of children from across our community in a positive way!  One Church – One School – One Child – One Hour – at a time.

Last Spring, New Hope embarked on a prayerful journey, and sought God’s direction in how we as a congregation might become more missional to the community around us.  Renee’ Jelsma, New Hope’s Director of Renewal and Missional Living was familiar with the Kids Hope program which is widely utilized in her home state of Michigan.  After months of planning, Donna DeKoning was trained and became co-director with Renee’ and the implementation process began.

We are excited to announce that Kids Hope USA will begin its partnership with Hewitt-Texas Elementary School, Wausau, within the next few weeks.  A big shout out to principal Phil Beck who assisted in referring students, and our trained mentors are currently being matched.

If you would like to know more about Kids Hope USA and how it can make a positive influence in the life of one child at a time, call Renee’ at 715-845-8541.
