Every Sunday at 8:30 AM, Pastor Brady has a unique opportunity to minister to the young people who are being detained at the St. Francois County Juvenile Detention Center. These pre-teens and teens are at a vulnerable crossroads in their lives, many cut off and shunned by their families because of the circumstances that have caused them to be at JDC, and can be especially receptive to the truth of Christ's love and forgiveness.
They have the gospel presented to them on a weekly basis. The faces change regularly as they are released to their families or are transferred to other facilities for rehabilitation and detention, but the needs remain the same, and this is often the first time these young people have heard about Jesus.
Please pray for the safety of these young people and for hearts to be prepared in advance of the message of truth brought to them by the pastor.
