Welcome to Our Blog!

Welcome blog.jpg

We are thrilled to kick off our new blog! If you are new to Freestyle Ministries, our mission is to educate, equip, and inspire youth within juvenile justice facilities and high-risk communities to develop a relationship with Jesus, to develop and maintain positive lifestyle changes, and to use their God-given gifts and talents to create change in their generation. We achieve this primarily through the publication of FRUIT. Magazine.

FRUIT. magazine's quarterly, high quality content and design are created specifically to engage the youth we serve. Our writers are “in the trenches” with this population, which keeps our content relevant and compelling. Our feature articles offer hope to our kids by sharing stories of people who have overcome similar obstacles. We provide drug, gang, and healthy living education, positive music and book reviews, letters from adult inmates sharing their experiences with our youth in hopes that they will choose a different path, we publish the art and writing of our readers, and provide local and national resources to help meet their wholistic needs.

We love the youth we work with and love getting to point them towards Jesus. Our hope for this blog is that it will reach out to even more people who will join our mission to empower our readers.

You can expect to find some of our columns and articles on this blog. You will also find updates about Freestyle Ministries, profiles of our staff and volunteers, and announcements about events or news. We plan to post a blog at least two times a month so be sure to bookmark this page and check back regularly. You can also sign up for our newsletter and get our blogs each month in your inbox.
