The Mentoring Alliance
The Mentoring Alliance is a Christ-centered, intentionally multi-ethnic ministry that seeks to address the foundational issue that wreaks havoc on communities: the breakdown of the family. It does this through three unique yet overlapping programs: Boys & Girls Clubs of East Texas, Gospel Village and Rose City Summer Camps.

"There are three common aspects of effective ministries: Who they hire, how they train who they hire, and what they expect of who they hire."

-Kevin East

"God wants us to live our lives and equip our children's lives with the sheer power of His grace. When we have allowed God's grace to permeate our hearts, it's impossible to contain its impact."

-Dr. Tim Kimmel, Raising Kids for True Greatness: Redefine Success for You and Your Child

​"Mentoring is not just about showing charity and sympathy to troubled kids. Mentoring calls people to live incarnation ally and requires people who are willing to sacrifice something to become the hands and feet of Jesus."  

-Dr. John Sowers​,Fatherless Generation: Redeeming the Story

"The Gospel of Jesus Christ is the very thing our world so desperately needs. And the infusion of the Gospel in our organizations is what we most need to protect."  

-Peter Greer,  Mission Drift: The Unspoken Crisis Facing Leaders, Charities, and Churches

"As you become rightly related to God, by His grace, He will lead you in modeling the spiritual life, and in training your children how to live happy, free, fruitful lives."  

-Jeff VanVonderen, Families Where Grace is in Place: Building a Home Free of Manipulation, Legalism, and Shame

"Adoption is not just about couples who want children - or who want more children. Adoption is about an entire culture within our churches, a culture that sees adoption as part of our Great Commission mandate and as a sign of the Gospel itself."  

-Russel D. Moore, Adopted for Life: The Priority of Adoption for Christian Families & Churches

"The question for us as individual Christians and as Christ's body is: Will we settle for a safe, comfortable religion or will we use these resources for the good of the world and the glory of Christ?"

-Tony Merida & Rick Morton, Orphanology: Awakening to Gospel-Centered Adoption and Orphan Care
