Curtis Ligier is one of 10 Dads who recently received Urban Light Ministries certificates.

Making an Impact

On September 15, 2019, ten fathers were awarded certificates for their participation in the 13-session Father Love Dads Discussion Group at New Hope Church in Dayton. The fathers were very engaged and came away with an enhanced understanding of, enthusiasm for and practical steps for loving their families as the Heavenly Father love them. Seven of the participants received Completion Certificates for attending ten or more of the 13 sessions!

The church was so impacted by the ministry that they are continuing the programming by offering a Dads Discussion Group on Sunday mornings as an elective. We are pleased to be able to provide training, resources and coaching. Your support makes it possible.

For some of these precious kids, it is the one time they hear about the good news of Jesus Christ. For others, The Sonshine Club is a welcome addition to their Sunday School lesson. That’s 511 little souls receiving a message of love and hope each school week from caring Christian adults. READ THE ENTIRE NEWSLETTER HERE.
