Our youth have so much to contend with today – from gender identity issues to bullying, drug abuse and even violence in schools. They need a spiritual compass to help them navigate their way through the rapidly changing landscape of teenage life. That’s where we come in!
This academy was designed by our Senior Pastors, Bishop Lyle Dukes and Pastor Deborah Dukes, to empower, train and equip young ladies in middle and high school and young men in elementary, middle and high school to reach their fullest potential in God by providing them with the tools to build a strong Christian character and confidence that only comes from a relationship with Christ.
We provide godly instruction, correction and encouragement as well as life skills. Our courses cover Bible Basics, Leadership, How to Defeat Temptation, Avoiding Gang Culture/Human Trafficking, Respect, How to Handle Bullying, Responsibility and more. The Academies also afford young people an opportunity to meet new friends and experience the joy of serving others through our Community Service events. We close out each 5-week course with a graduation ceremony and present each student that meets all of the course requirements with a Certificate of Completion – the perfect way to celebrate the growth and the accomplishments of these awesome young men and women!
Each child will receive their own binder to keep notes and assignments in. We also provide breakfast and snacks during each session for your convenience.
