Our Mission

The mission of Living Stones is to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ from teens to young adults and inspire them to live out the call of chastity.

 

Our Vision

Living Stones will collaborate with churches, schools, youth groups, and other organizations to spread the truth about God’s plan for sex and marriage. The foundation of our programming will be the teaching and tradition promoted by St. John Paul II, known as “The Theology of the Body”. The ultimate goal is to win souls for Christ, build disciples, and raise up youth with a desire to live in relationship with God. Youth who participate in Living Stones programming will be educated, challenged, and inspired to live out the call to chastity. Living Stones seeks then to leave youth with practical tools that will deepen their relationship with Christ and support their spiritual growth.

 

Our Values

  • Every life has dignity and is a gift from God.

  • We the Church are called to share the Gospel and evangelize.

  • The message of God’s love and mercy are to be proclaimed in order to invite each person into a personal relationship with Christ.

  • Educating youth on God’s plan for sex and marriage promotes a culture of life that addresses sexual integrity as well as upholds the dignity and sacredness of each unborn child.

  • Youth deserve to be challenged to think critically about their life choices and invited to live out God’s plan for them with practical tools to support their discipleship.

“...like living stones, let yourselves be built into

a spiritual house...” - 1 Peter 2:5
