We are pleased to see the plan of an alliance of Gulfport churches to open a new teen center. Even more encouraging about this project is the role teenagers are playing in the renovation of the building, planning and scheduling of events at the teen center.
The church alliance, Kingdom New Generation Leaders, recognizes for the center to be a success, teens have to be in on every facet of the Dream Teen Center. The teens have a voice in creating a positive environment loaded with lots of fun events for themselves and their friends.
The new center at Highway 49 and O'Neal Road will have a game room, dances and even tutoring for 7th to 12th graders. We think the investment the alliance is making in this teen center is a good investment in the future of our youth and our community.
That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org.
