Jubilee IndRegional Outreach
Youth Central, under the leadership of Beth and Dan Dent, is a faith-based program primarily for the Hispanic community in the Vass/Cameron/Carthage area. The ministry uses the facilities of Vass Presbyterian Church to conduct its activities during the week. Youth Central’s mission statement, “helping to give hope and a future to the next generation,” is achieved by providing a safe place for school aged children to come after school for supervised activities, homework help, leadership and life skills training. Discipleship and mentoring are important elements of this ministry. The single paid staff person is Educational Director, Gloriana Escobar, who oversees all after-school activities and uses her rich teaching experience to target and tutor students in their areas of weakness. Gloriana oversees the scheduling and training of volunteers. Volunteers from Moore County are the lifeblood for all tutoring, mentoring, and discipleship efforts.
The Jubilee Institute is a three-pronged ministry launched from Christ Community Church that reflects, at least in part, how important it is to bring the heart of missions back home in order.
Each prong or pillar of the ministry represents a significant and important value. The first pillar relates to ongoing partnerships with local Hispanic churches. The second pillar includes providing theological and leadership training to local church leadership using much of the curriculum of IBAC (“Institutos Bíblicos de América Central”). The final pillar includes providing discounted counseling services in conjunction with Immigrant Hope of the Sandhills (coming in early 2018).
The mission of the Jubilee can be summarized as (i) partner for relationship and trust, (ii) teach to equip and grow, and (iii) counsel to give hope for tomorrow.
