The Post Youth Center – Located in Downtown Goshen
The Post is a Christ-centered Youth Center located in downtown Goshen, IN. We got our start from Lon and Judy Miller and their burden to reach out to the youth of this community. They wanted, and it remains to this day, to establish a place where everybody is welcome regardless of lifestyle choice. Their goal was to share the love of Christ with any middle school or high school aged student that walked through their doors.
Over 15 years later, the heartbeat is the same as we continue to reach the youth of this community. One of our biggest obstacles here of late is the battle of breaking the cycles of Generational Poverty and Fatherless Homes plaguing our community. Do not let the word ‘poverty’ lead you in the wrong direction, GP has very little to do with the financial state of one’s family. It is a lifestyle as well as an outlook on life that very much controls your everyday life. We also believe that Generational Poverty has a direct influence in the critical issue of Fatherless Homes. These are 2 issues The Post is passionate about, and dedicated to reversing by equipping our youth to succeed personally, professionally, and spiritually.
Please pray for our students and our leadership teams as we accept the challenge placed before us of ‘breaking the cycles’ and leading our kids into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ that will have an “eternal” impact in the lives of the youth within our community.
“Engage. Encourage. Equip. Empower!”
Leadership Academies Wednesday Nights @ 4:30 PM
The mission of Leadership Academies (All The King’s Men & Daughter’s of The King) is to Engage. Encourage. Equip. Empower! Our academies require teens to committing to reversing the cycles of generational poverty and fatherless homes by equipping them to succeed personally, professionally, and spiritually. The curriculum of this program is based on 5 Areas of Success: Leadership Characteristics, Health & Wellness, Professional Development, Financial/Family Planning, and Community Involvement.
Each youth participant is paired with a mentor and conducts meetings in a 1-on-1 interaction capacity. After learning more about their youth counterpart, each coach applies the 5 Areas of Success and personalizes content specific to the challenges faced, goals, and definitions of success for their teen.
