There’s no better reminder of why Forerunner’s ministry matters to me than to hear from a mom that it matters so much to them. The moms of our Forerunners are seeing firsthand that relationships founded on Jesus Christ change lives – forever. It’s a beautiful thing to see God so vividly working in our community through a faithful, passionate and humble leader in Zach Garza; an amazingly talented and caring staff; and mentors, tutors and donors who are investing sacrificially in the future of these young men.

I’ve seen the Kingdom of God expand here on earth as families have been loved and served through our program. I’ve seen kids improve their attitudes, test scores and most importantly, grow in their faith and devotion to Christ. I’ve seen Mothers feel connected and supported at Family Dinners. And I’ve seen a great need met by our community.

I am passionate about Forerunner because the organization is providing a deep investment, centered in Christ, that can be transformative and life altering. Our mentors, volunteers, and staff give selflessly to ensure these boys and their mothers feel loved, respected, and cared for in ways they might not have ever experienced before. God called us to be leaders in our communities and to provide a voice and to defend those in need. I’m not sure how you could hear the story of Forerunner and not want to be a part of this mission.

The ministry of Forerunner matters to me because I grew up in a single parent home with an absent father. A young man mentored me. He taught me what it meant to be Christ follower and a man. He hung out with me, encouraged me, and loved me. My life was forever changed and he is still in my life today.

I’m passionate about Forerunner because the Lord used mentoring relationships with Godly men to introduce me to a relationship with Jesus Christ and to give me vision, direction, and purpose in my life.
