ECM provides hope and healing for children ages 11 to 18 in the Juvenile Justice System in St. Louis, primarily through our chaplains who represent the compassionate face of a loving God by:
Being a caring, non-anxious presence to children in trouble
Listening, spiritual guidance, Sunday worship
Offering life-changing programs like “Put the Gunz Down” to curb gun violence, as well as community -based grief/loss groups
Facilitating special events: faith-based Hip Hop concerts, monthly birthday parties, holiday gifts
Distributing Bibles, books, journals, games, etc.
Why this ministry is so important:
Because we believe . . .
in the healing power of God’s presence.
the children we serve are more than the worst thing they have done.
all children deserve a second chance.
children aren’t disposable and are worth our time and attention.
the calming presence of our chaplains reassures the children that someone cares about their spiritual well-being.
