The Post Youth Center – Located in Downtown Goshen

Right in our backyards are teens who face challenges that are difficult to overcome. These challenges might include coming from divorced homes, experiencing poverty, living in a home with someone who abuses drugs or alcohol, struggling in school, or wrestling with their spirituality. Youths need help to overcome these difficult circumstances; therefore, it is imperative that we come together as a community to address these issues. For this reason the Post Youth Center exists.   

The Post is located in downtown Goshen and our mission is to provide a safe environment for our youth, challenging them through intentional relationships, opening the door to allow God to reveal their identity and purpose through a relationship with Jesus Christ. Our founders, Lon and Judy Miller, wanted to establish a Christian community where everybody is welcome regardless of race, religion or lifestyle choice. Their goal was to share the love of Christ with any teen that walked through their doors.

Over 15 years later, this mission remains the same. Throughout our existence we have created an environment for teens to experience relationships with loving adults who can help guide them through life. We build these relationships by connecting through caring. We ask ourselves, “What is this teen missing that they need to succeed?”. When we discover the answer to this question, we attempt to provide the youth with that thing. We believe that meeting the needs of our teens builds a trusting connection that enables us to address their greatest need– their need for a healthy relationship with Jesus. 

“Connecting Through Caring”

Please pray for our students and our leadership as we build supportive relationships together. Pray that we are able to share with our students the love of Jesus in a tangible, transformational way.

Dear Supporters,

Thank you so much for all you do. We hit our initial goal of $500 dollars. We were overwhelmed by the generous support we received for our calming room. Your support enables us to create a space for teens that can help their emotions, relationships, home lives, academics and health.

Initially when we created our campaign we decided to ask for a small goal. In discussing this we were reflecting on our identity as a faith based organization. We are extremely grateful for what we have raised so far but realized we may have been limiting how God wants to bless our teens by setting this small goal.

As we were talking this over as a staff we looked at the numbers on paper. We created another list of things we would like and did some math based on average prices of the items on Amazon. The following is our current wish list:

-3 Weighted Blankets
-2 Pairs of noise canceling headphones (like what you use when shooting guns)
-Plants
-Craft/Art Supplies
-Yoga Mats
-Notebooks/Writing Materials
-Bean Bags
-Shelves

Looking at average prices of these items we would need about $1000. Because of this we have decided to raise our goal to $900. We have the ability to DIY some things and intend to look for good deals on items.

We want this room to be sanctified, set apart for a specific purpose, in order for the students to be able to utilize it well and receive maximum benefits. We want our students to feel comfortable in the space and see based on the quality of the area that it is something we thoughtfully and intentionally designed for them.

What it boils down to is this- we love our teens. We see this space differently than we see the other spaces in our building. This is a space that will facilitate deeper connections with our teens and an opportunity to help them grow as people. Our teens face many difficulties and desperately need deep connections with caring adults to help them walk through them.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this update. Please consider donating to our campaign. If you feel led to donate any of the items on our wish list give us a call. Thank you so much in advance.

Invest in a relationship to connect with youth.

We are offering programs that allow us to connect with area youth and teach important life skills. Each weekday evening, our youth are invited to participate in different events and programs.  We have multiple ways staff and volunteers can partner to mentor our youth. We have had clubs centered around basketball, board games, weight lifting, Henna, cooking, crocheting/knitting, music appreciation and chess. All of these clubs are intended to build connections between adults and students. If you have a skill and some spare time you would like to share while connecting with our youth, give us a call and let’s see what we can do together.
