About Us

passage-logo.1200Our Mission

The Passage Institute for Youth and Theology exists to equip youth and those who minister to youth for participation in God's mission to reconcile and restore all creation through opportunities for rigorous Christian study and the cultivation of Christian practices. Over the last generations, Christians in America have not been very successful in evangelizing and discipling youth. Recent studies, however, have shown that youth who have engaged in serious theological study and intentional Christian practices have a more resilient faith and we aim to serve the church by multiplying such experiences for students in the Ark-La-Tex region.

It is our prayer that through our work youth will be transformed for Christian leadership in all areas of life through faithful response to Jesus' call participate in God's mission of reconciliation and restoration.

Our work is funded by a generous grant (2016-2019) from the Lilly Endowment, Inc. and supported by LeTourneau University and the School of Theology and Vocation. We thank them for their generosity! To support our work, click here.
