M.A.D. House exists to "REACH lost teens, CONNECT them to positive relationships, INTRODUCE them to God, help them GROW in their FAITH and DISCOVER God's purpose for their life."
REACH... CONNECT... INTRODUCE...GROW...DISCOVER
At M.A.D. House we believe that the problems that we face in our society, as a community, as churches, as families and as individuals, are in large part due to the fact that we have disregarded the basic standards and principles of right, wrong and personal responsibility. In essence we have ignored God, created our own standards and now are beginning to discover that we have found the enemy and it is us. So what do we do?
No one really enjoys a lecture on right, wrong and personal responsibility. Similarly, a God who is presented as a list of dos, don'ts and oppressive rules is not quickly embraced by most young people. Nevertheless, there is a clear standard of right, wrong and personal responsibility and it is found in God Himself. So if He is to be accurately presented or represented, so too will the principles of right, wrong and personal responsibility.
The primary and transcendent purpose of M.A.D. House is to bring young people into a right relationship with God through His Son, Jesus Christ, and to equip them with an opportunity to be successful in walking with Him. Students who regularly attend M.A.D. House will witness in a fun and active atmosphere God’s standards of right, wrong and personal accountability and will understand, from the Word of God, who God is, who people are, what sin is, how sin separates God and people, the temporal and eternal effects of sin and God’s provision for forgiveness for sin and a right relationship with Him.
At M.A.D. House, we make the effort to plant the seed of the Gospel through a variety of methods. Each gathering is highlighted by a Bible study and applicable message; students who attend M.A.D. House will not only hear God’s message but will see it being lived out in the lives of the adult leaders.
