TRANSITIONS mission is to build faith and life-skills into college-aged young adults.
Each mentee learns the ‘how to’ of living out a Biblical worldview through life’s unfamiliar and challenging times.
College or early work life become the building blocks for lives of success. Mentees become more adept at realizing
how to deal with life challenges through applying their growing faith in Christ.
Barna research has shown that a majority of youth raised in the church and professing a faith in Christ, depart from their faith
after graduating from high school. This statistic is the driving passion behind TRANSITIONS. Notes Barna Research, “Most of
them pull away from participation and engagement in Christian churches, particularly during the ‘college years.’

“With so many distractions in college, Transitions keeps me motivated to want to continue my growth in Christ” -- Tarasae

FROM MENTEE TO MENTOR
As a big-bro or big-sis, many will have the opportunity to continue this nurturing relationship process. Being paired with a younger person in his/her sphere of influence
to mentor, will allow continual growth of TRANSITIONS Mentoring Ministry.
THE TIPPING POINT
“I feel that my daughter’s mentor has a special calling on her life to help young girls grow into special young ladies.” – Kim, mother of a Transitions mentee
Research and experience have shown that for students to thrive and finish higher education, a strong mentor
is a tipping point. Mentoring these youth through the obstacles builds their understanding of how to overcome unexpected barriers,
some of which are due to the lifestyle choices made by their faith in Christ.

"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you,
plans to give you hope and a future.
Then you will call on me and come and pray to me,
and I will listen to you.
You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart." - Jeremiah 29:11-13
