Our goal for OneWay is to help the young men and women develop a deeper, stronger, personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We encourage relationships with other believers, and empower them to spread God’s word. We believe that you start with a firm foundation and build from there. We always build up and encourage, in everything we do. We don't ever want them to be ashamed of Jesus or his mighty power! We partner with the parents. We pray for a true belief in and dependency upon the One True God. With all that, we hope they take the tools we give them and use them for the rest of their lives! Our prayer for them is to answer their calling and to spread God’s love and Word wherever they go!
Jon and Kelli Harrington,
OneWay Youth Group Leaders
Kelli and I are High School sweethearts, married in 1996. We have had interesting road getting to where we are today, but through it all, God’s hand was in it. We stepped into the role of youth leaders for OneWay in 2015, and have never looked back. Our two teenage boys have helped us to see the struggles the youth of today face. We always instruct our boys to follow the narrow path even when it seems the hardest. We have also allowed them to fail, as we believe sometimes you just have to learn things the hard way. We truly believe that you can live a life focused on Christ, with a heart and desire to please him. We have a true heart for young people to learn early that Christ is truly the only way to make it. A genuine personal relationship with him is the OneWay to ensure eternal life and salvation. We look forward to giving the youth at New Living Hope Church the tools and encouragement to find that personal relationship with God that will stick with them long into their future.
