A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”
Would you agree that today's youth are being bombarded with more negatives than has been seen in the history of the United States?

Welcome to the NETWORK. As a youth leader and evangelist of 28 years I know what it's like to work tirelessly, year after year, to help youth with their personal, and spiritual growth. I also understand what it feels like to watch the days grow darker while early depression in youth continues to increase. Something more must be done to protect our children, and grandchildren. These are perilous times and it calls for a different plan of action. I believe God is doing a new thing. He is calling Christian leaders to lay down isms and schisms and pick up the power of God's love to show the world His form of UNITY.
My first 501(c)3 organization, Jesus the Spiritual Connection Christian Outreach Network (The NETWORK) brought together Christian leaders and lay-persons to evangelize the inner-city communities of the Washington, DC metropolitan area, since 1996. In 2010, after the murder of my youngest son Justin, I lost all desire to work with youth. Towards the end of 2011, God restored me and moved me to pull the youth vision back out. I felt led to give the ministry the name Justin L. Davis Foundation because the heart of the vision is to rescue youth from depression, and my son suffered from EARLY depression. I also believe God has given me an opportunity to keep a part of my son alive as I pursue the will of God for this ministry. In 2014, the Foundation became a 501(c)3 prevention, intervention, and solution driven organization.
Today, The NETWORK, under the direction of the Lord, has relocated to the Houston area. In Houston, we are seeking to collaborate with Christian leaders, mental health professionals, philanthropist, and business owners, who are innovators, trailblazers, and trendsetters. We are working towards opening the first 80,000 sq ft Recreational Facility of the Art Leadership Academy. The first Christian Evangelistic Center like it in the world.
Through this united effort youth will have a daily, fun and safe space to hang out. The center is a place where parents can release their children knowing that they're getting the necessary reinforcements needed to discover their every potential. It is a place that is designed to act as a support to the Churches of the Houston area, offering pastors who are members of the NETWORK an opportunity to bring their youth, as well as, to encourage youth without a Church home in the center" to join their Churches. The center is also a place that will offer effective youth ministries needing space, the space they need to run their ministries.
How exciting is this, I pray you will consider collaborating with us. Bring your youth ministry ideas, your gifts, talents and resources so that we may "Build a Bridge to a Brighter Future" for our youth like never before. Together, we can reach a greater number of youth, assisting them in creating change in their communities and the world. What God has put in you, is essential to the IMPACT of this MISSION!
In His Service,
President and CEO
