Meet Our Partner

Ministering to families in the True Vine Christian Church and Kidz XL community is a high priority. This community, located on the border of the Westchester/Olympia Heights, has a population of over 100,000 people within a 3-mile radius of the church. 80% of the homes in these communities speak Spanish as the primary language. Academic enrichment, Bible study, worship and play are ministry cornerstones. The goal of this Apex experience is that participants learn to lead and serve in a diverse community.
