The mission of In The Gap is to equip and inspire young adults to be positive leaders who model integrity, passionately love Jesus Christ, and effectively influence children to do the same.
In the Old Testament times, during the life of Ezekiel, the Children of Israel defiled themselves and their land. They made no differentiation between clean and unclean, holy and unholy, and the Lord was not pleased. So, “[the Lord] sought for a man among them, that would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one.” (Ezekiel 22:30) What a sad state of affairs. In the entire land, the Lord couldn’t find even one to stand before Him on behalf of the land.
Our goal is to guide young individuals to ‘stand in the gap.’ To show people the ways of Christ. To make a difference and be salt and spread light in areas where only darkness is found. When the Lord searches for someone to stand in the gap, we want Him to say, “I can and will use you because your heart is right towards me.” Psalm 34:15 says, “The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry.” God is looking for people to make a difference in the world today. Our desire is to raise up individuals who will seek to transform their community and nation, one life at a time.
