Aslan Youth Ministries was born during the turbulent, late sixties. When Lynn Ann and I first arrived in New Jersey in 1971, there was a burned out ice cream store still barely standing on Shrewsbury Avenue – the results of violence from only a few years before. Ever since Aslan was founded in 1975 we’ve been preaching the same message: “Faith, hope & love abide. And the greatest of these is love.”
After almost a half century of loving and encouraging urban, at-risk children, Aslan stands at the forefront, leading the field in showing the lives of black children & families truly do matter. We’re not a movement. The thousands of young people who’ve come through our doors and the hundreds and hundreds of families we’ve helped are living proof of God’s love in action. Through our mission, people of all races are brought together and Aslan is the embodiment of racial reconciliation. We strive each day to open people’s eyes to see all God has accomplished through Aslan.
Being inspired is easy, but inspiration is meaningless unless it leads to actually doing something! Motivation is a step in the right direction, but even that is still incomplete. Action is the only thing that brings meaning to inspiration and motivation. Action is the hard work. It’s lifting enough weight to tear your muscles so they can grow. Jesus said it well: “No greater love has a man, than to lay down his life for a friend.”
As we approach the end of 2020, one of the most difficult years in most of our lifetimes, we need you to take action and support our ministry. When you give to Aslan, you’re giving to an organization of action that is making a incredible difference in the lives of countless people. Through all the children in Aslan & their families . . . through the myriad volunteers who give of their time and talent . . . and through you who give financially . . . lives are being changed forever, one child at a time.
