Mobile Hope & JSAW
In early 2015, Jay and Kim learned about Mobile Hope at an Amplify Mission Network (formerly Barnabas) meeting. Mobile Hope serves local mobile home communities through student education, enhancing the skills and opportunities of residents, and providing healthy activities for everyone to engage in, all based on the foundation of Christian faith in action. After the meeting, Jay and Kim visited Mobile Hope to learn more about their ministry and explore opportunities to share an early childhood reading curriculum Kim developed as an elementary school teacher. During their visit, Jay noticed kids skateboarding and remembered learning about JSAW, an action sports ministry, at another partner meeting. After checking with the Mobile Hope team, Jay connected the two ministries and a partnership was born. JSAW has since sent their van to pick up kids at Mobile Hope for weekly bible study and skating at JSAW’s facility in Edina.
