WHY CHANGE THE NAME OF A SUCCESSFUL PROGRAM?
When you look at the picture above, many things might be apparent. One of them is that BWAP is a lot more than basketball.
Athletics is only a relationship building tool. We use basketball to gain an entry point into a trusting relationship that builds opportunities for young men to reach for their God-given potential.
Purpose in life should be more than just staying alive. Our goal in the BWAP Program is to help 18-30 yr. old young men become Christ-centered role models who mentor the younger generation. Another way to say that would be; "We help old gangsters change their lives and teach them how to mentor "wannabe gangsters" by acting like a big brother instead of a gangster."
BROTHERS WITH A PURPOSE
"If anyone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar;
for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen
cannot love God whom he has not seen."
1 John 4:20
"Whoever hates his brother is a murderer,
and you know that no murderer
has eternal life abiding in him."
1 John 3:15
Thanks for your time and praying for the young people at YWAP. Go do something nice for somebody.
Jesus loves you and so do we.
