OUR MISSION – END THE LIST
The Mentoring Project seeks to respond to the American crisis of fatherlessness by inspiring and equipping faith communities to mentor fatherless youth.
Our goal for our hometown of Portland specifically is to end the waiting list made up of 1000 fatherless boys. We will do this by training up mentors in faith communities and finally seeing the church stand in the gap on the issue of fatherlessness. By focussing on mentoring, we believe that the American church could effectively shut down prisons, end school dropouts, curb youth suicide, and reduce homelessness for a large number of boys affected by the fatherless epidemic.
At Cooper Mountain Presbyterian Fellowship, Cornerstone ministry advocates getting men involved as mentors of youth in our community and a number of men have stepped up to do so. If you have questions or want more information about this opportunity, contact the church office.
