In the midst of nationwide riots sparked by the tragic killing of Mike Brown in St. Louis and racial tensions in Memphis, a transformative moment unfolded on the front lawn of a youth campus. Faced with the aftermath of a young Black individual shot by a white police officer, students sought answers and guidance. Recognizing the need for a different response than joining other organizations promoting riots, they were challenged to view the Gospel and prayer as powerful responses to city issues. Committing to weekly prayer sessions in schools, the movement gained momentum, culminating in over 500 students participating in a viral prayer event that showcased the transformative impact of prayer and the Gospel on youth ministry in Memphis.


As a non-profit organization and ministry, we are devoted to making and mobilizing young disciples of Christ and empowering them to start Gospel movements that change cities and counter culture. 


The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. - 2 Corinthians 10:4-5


Take the next step today and join the movement. Learn how you can start a start a "Righteous Riot" in your city.
