Reaching Youth

Released Time Programs provide opportunities for students to learn beneficial Bible truths during the school day while maintaining a separation between church and state.

Why Released Time?

Released Time Programs legally allow students to be released during the school day in order to be taught valuable and helpful Biblical truths.

Released Time has been proven to be beneficial to students' mental health, academic performance, and character development.

Why Now?

Now more than ever, our youth are experiencing confusion, addiction, and depression. There is a need for Released Time Bible Programs to encourage and help today's youth. We believe that God is raising up ministries like ours for such a time as this.

Many youth that aren't willing or able to attend church, ARE willing to attend our Released Time Programs.
