Orlando Youth Development


Kaliah was a concerned middle-schooler. Questions ran through her mind: Who's going to the [Purity] retreat? Will I like the people there? Will we have fun? Though Kaliah is constantly surrounded by her eight siblings, she can be painfully shy with new people.

But with a few of her friends, she took a leap of faith and decided to attend the retreat.

Upon arrival, she quickly connected with several other young ladies and adult mentors, who welcomed her warmly. She laughed, ate a lot of snack food, stayed up late, and most importantly, learned about God's love for her.

One night, in a small room with several of her peers and mentors, Kaliah took a leap of faith — right into the Kingdom. She committed to follow Christ. She and 10 other girls stayed up late that night to read their Bibles!

Kaliah continues to learn about how to follow Christ at her weekly girls' Bible study.

All year we minister to young girls like Kaliah. It is always a challenge for them to live out their faith on a daily basis.

This year, 19 urban teen girls attended the Purity Retreat, along with a few hundred other students. Six urban teen boys attended the retreat as well. This was the first year that we were able to include a component for teen boys!
