We are a faith-based organization for at-risk young adults. We are committed to helping families in crisis with troubled loved-ones through a referral network of Christian ministries that provide diverse services complimenting each other for the purpose of healing and restoring broken families. We also provide immediate support and crisis counseling at the moment of the call. We help process the individual through the crisis they are involved to a place of personal responsibility and the depth of a rational mind change.
Oftentimes people in crisis can be defiant, have numerous overlapping life controlling problems, because of frustration are unmotivated, involved in immoral lifestyles, including promiscuity, drug abuse, alcohol and other facets of outright rebellion that are directly connected to idolatry. The underlying root cause of sin (to choose to turn off the mark) is idolatry (1 Cor. 10:1-14). Idolatry can be defined as: When we hold in high esteem, regard, honor the created and not the creator God. We begin to ask the questions that take the individual from a place of irrational thoughts about themselves to a ration thought process that causes them to be convinced about their state and want a change. We get enslaved to what we love more than God. How do we define our individual idolatry? What are we giving our allegiances, value, time, energy, money, life to? It is also important for us to consider that also Good created things we can give ourselves over to, for these things we love. Things such as family, employment, our pastors, and numerous other good things can enslave us, people could gladly choose Good things to enslave themselves. Good things do not mean that they cannot become out little gods.
It is important for us to find out what enslaves us so we can define what the underlying root cause of the surface problems that is evident in our life. Answer these questions and they will lead to what enslaves you?
· What are your greatest fears?
· What do you care about most?
· What are you passionate about?
· What motivates you every day?
· Where do you run for comfort?
· What do you complain about?
· What makes you the extremely angry?
· What makes you the most happiest?
· How do you explain yourselves to people or introduce yourself to people?
· What are you mad at God about?
· What are you mad at your selves about?
· What do you Brag about?
· What do you sacrifice to with your money, time, and energy the most to?
· What are our greatest hopes and desires?
· What are you waiting for?
The combined services and collaborative efforts of our network of ministries help to begin to address the needs of the whole person by providing a whole solution through spiritual nurturing re-pattern of the mind, emotional health and social enrichment. We are convinced that this is the solution to strengthening families and communities throughout America. The inner Transformation is because of the working of Grace, which does not demand nor modify a behavior changes with only unreliable temporary irrational solutions. Inner transformation is an inner process of integration in our mind to pattern our thoughts with God’s mind which causes transfiguration by joining the human and the divine through revelation of absolute truth internally. Behavior modification is the process of forcing external change of self-defeating behavior. To cause change only on the external is only to provide Band-aid solutions for an individual’s surface problems from the outer. This external behavior modification comes from secular reasoning and humanistic counseling in the form of behaviorism that is prevalent in recovery models. It will work in the short term to cause a ceasing of external surface self-defeating and life controlling problems. Behavior modification is only impermanent because the source is temporal and methods are not focused on changing the mind rationally. The underlying primary root cause of the self-defeating and life controlling problems are not defined as irrational thought patterns and habits therefore the idea of personal responsibility is never considered because of the diseasing of behavior.
The Grace of God ( Who God is and What God has performed) teaches us the rational expression of God which internally convinces us in our mind, deals with the underlying root issues that caused the surface self-defeating behaviors by internal re-patterning of the mind. The battlefield in our mind needs to change from patterns or habits learned from outer and external stimulation from our past experiences, billions of projections per second from the world system, and from our adversary the devil who goal is to enslave out thought patterns. God, the Holy Spirit works through our human spirit to re-patterns our mind by God’s amazing abundant Grace as the source that reliably reconstructs our mind from the irrational to the rational from the inside. The transfigured mind will cause a metamorphosis, transfigures our free will(Volition), rebuilds our value system in our conscience, and restructures our reacting emotions to responding from new Christ mind. The new Birth of our mind occurs at the moment we begin our relationship with Christ. New Birth birth plants the person, the Holy Spirit whose primary role in our life is to convince (convict) us. Our newness is the new birth given to those who choose life of Grace. Grace does the work and patterns our mind actively inside of us because everything about God’s Grace is constant, reliable, authentic, dependable, unbroken, unceasing, devoted, and therefore eternally continual. This symphony of Grace has that refer frequently and usually initially only to our personal salvation. It is defined as the favor
of God meaning that we did not deserve and could not ever earn the non-meritorious Gift of God. The frequent missing of the daily life giving constancy of grace, to realize all of who God is, performed and continues to reveal himself as the source in His character and nature in our daily life.
The results of this network of ministries are proving to be a solution to strengthen people, families, and their communities throughout America and overseas. After 15 years and over 11,000 hours of working with troubled young adults and families, we have discovered that the common thread woven through the diverse fabric of our nation’s people is the lack of purpose and identity. There are many people of all ages, from the inner cities to suburbia, who are wandering aimlessly in search of the answer to the same question man has asked for thousands of years, "Who am I, and why am I here?" Unfortunately, drugs, gangs and other negative influences are competing heavily for the hearts and minds of America, with a heavy impact on young adults everywhere. The availability of such overwhelming negative influences in every sector of our society is a deadly mix for everyone. Our non-profit is on the forefront of working with such difficulties, and has united and brought leadership to a unique network of Christian organizations, bringing real solutions for young adults and families!
Our vision is to reach multitudes of young adults and their families, and to produce a remnant of people that will glorify Jesus in and through their lives. We want to assure that these young adults to become a blessing to their local Churches as well as their communities. This is vital because the church is suffering from the eventual extinction with 86 percent of young adults leaving the church by their 18th birthday and never returning. This generation is in utter crisis becoming more and more post-Christian in their world-views. Our society needs to be build upon the young adults who are the future of our society. The unreached and un-churched young adults are reachable through non-judgmental, relevant non-traditional contemporary methods which are authentic and real without the appearance of hypocrisy.
From among these young adults that we have reached, God will separate some for the work of the ministry. Our society is no longer producing morally healthy young adults on a large scale; it is also our goal to establish a community of strong families, which are hopefully the partial purpose of local churches. Eventually, neighboring Churches will catch on until the whole city is filled with strong living organisms of believers, thus creating a strong city. Strong clusters of cities won to Christ will inevitably restore a strong and mighty nation under GOD, which in turn can impact the whole world.
Our vision is to reach multitudes of young adults and their families, and to produce a remnant of people that will glorify Jesus in and through their lives by God’s Grace. The living remnant cannot occur by self focused and behavior modification which secular traditional treatment of life controlling problems has predominately focused on in recovery programs. This will provide assurance to themselves and many others that Christianity is not a bunch of rules and behaviors. The personal life of Grace in their lives can and will build depth of capacity. Living epistle’s will emerge and display God’s masterpiece to encourage each other and attract those still in the world surrounding them. It is the duty of every person to be a servant of Christ, and a spiritual leader to the lost and dying generation. It is a challenge to become less self-serving and self-sacrificial. This is God’s eternal purpose is to establish a family in light of the fact that it will serve as a catapult to produce a godly seed. Through the perfection of succeeding generations, we will one day become that glorious church without spot or wrinkle for which Jesus will return. This occurs only by the working of Grace that teaches us to deny ungodliness and this present temporal world values.
This is our eternal dream. We understand that this is definitely not a quick fix solution to the problems of this generation. On the contrary, this process is one of much time, great cost, sacrificial commitment and a life time of dedication. Although the task may seem too big to tackle, we are convinced that it is our most noble duty to do that which is right in the eyes of Almighty God. He alone can take our small sacrifices and efforts to magnify them to the magnitude of a worldwide revival. It is our hope that in our life time we can see this dream come to pass. If for some reason we don’t, we together at the least will sow a sure seed for the salvation of future generations. Nevertheless, whether in our lifetime or in the lifetime of our successors, we are convinced that this dream will come to pass.

Building healthy relationships through planting high impact churches across America to reach this generation in crisis.
Our mission is to reach our nation for God while restoring godliness and morality in America. We work alongside and in cooperation with networked churches, agencie
s and community based organizations in orders to provide specialized services to those in self-defeating crisis and others who have life controlling problems trapped in idolatry. Teaching personal responsibility and teaching the rational whole counsel of God’s Grace.
Our goals and efforts are fueled by the desire to strengthen families and communities by providing healing to emotionally disturbed and behaviorally defiant young adults; who find themselves trapped in the web of drugs, alcohol, fornication, violence, and rebellion. These life controlling or self damaging behaviors are simply a set of complex surface problems that have slowly formed in response to unresolved and underlying deep seated issues in their mind. The lack of internal mental harmony results in irrational actions on the surface. They emerge from lack of control of emotions and therefore the free volition is compromised by corrupted value systems and integrity. We look at everyone as an individual because God has made us with wonderful uniqueness and are completely beautiful in His divine design. We must encourage this uniqueness and make religious cultural demands to have them conform to what we believe is a reflection of Christ. No one is the same and can be helped by the same strategies over and over. Our observation is that this is why most young adults have revealed in numerous statistically proven studies to have honest desires to never return to church or traditional Christianity. A very small percentage does return later in lives which are usually second or third generation believers.
This mass exodus with over 9 million young adults is growing by the hour and young adults are one of the largest Christian un-reached group in America today. These unreached young adults will not go to church before the reach 18. This generation is becoming extinct and lost more than any other generation in the church today.
We are convinced that these problems in our society root back to the sinful nature and the compromising of Christian values in this present post-Christian world system. We believe that a sure solution can be found in and only when God, family, and church join in a collaborative effort with singleness of purpose to bring about healing and the restoration of authority in the lives of troubled young adults. Young Adult Crisis Hotline is committed to spiritual nurturing the whole person. We also provide seminars and training methods to develop relevant young adult ministries in local church and in Christian community centers at no cost.
Young Adult Crisis Hotline is a faith-based, nonprofit organization for families in crisis. We offer help through an established network of ministries. Oftentimes those we help defiant unmotivated young adults that are involved in immoral lifestyles.

With our family discipleship and our biblical counseling ministry we believe in including family members so that they are integrated in the process of biblical education and equipping. This is vital to the progress of patterning that they can model after and build upon the disciplines taught in the Word of God. This is accomplished through Bible based counseling that helps to have a rational integrated mind of Christ. Biblical Coaching and Counseling can be arranged via phone-conference, in-person or at the family’s residence. Organized parent workshops allow interaction between families who face similar situations. Participants are able to encourage one another as they walk through the healing and recovery process of their loved ones.
All of these different services combined address the needs of the whole person by providing spiritual nurturing, recreation, vocational training, academic achievement, health and social development all in one program. We, at the Young Adult Crisis Hotline and Biblical Counseling Center, are convinced that this is the solution to strengthening families and communities throughout America.
Young Adult Biblical Counseling Center offers families a therapeutic rational spiritual treatment plan. Rather than subjecting our students to the limitations of behavior management models which primarily have an effect on the outward man, the focus is on spiritual renewal resulting in inner-transformation through a personal relationship with the integrated mind of Jesus Christ.
