Step Up

About Us

This ministry exists to build up foster youth who are often going through life lost, alone and without hope. There are more than 5,000 children living in foster care in San Diego County. These children have been removed from their homes, neighborhoods, communities and lost all that is familiar to them. Many of them try to fill the loneliness and emptiness with destructive behavior like drugs, sex, or fighting.

At 18 they often try to make on there own, and then end up on the streets, couch surfing or back with the families they were removed from.

A mentor is the one person who can be consistent in the life of a foster child. When a child moves to a new foster home, the mentor is there. When they move to another group home, the mentor is there. Even if they get into trouble, the mentor is there.

The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.
  (Deuteronomy 31:8)

A mentor shows these lost young ones about God's staying power.

As a member of the Rock Church we hope that you have a desire to use the gifts that God has given you to influence and transform these children who often feel hopeless into a child who sees a positive vision for his/her future.

It doesn't take much -- just a few hours a month doing what you already love to do: surf, play football, shop at the mall, or getting your nails done. The main thing is that you show up and keep coming back. (Deuteronomy 31:8, "Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the LORD is the one who goes before you. He will be with you; he will neither fail you nor forsake you.")

Let's show these lost young ones about God's staying power!
