Let Your Light Shine

As the new Executive Director at REYS, I have the unique opportunity to view our ministry with fresh eyes. For over 20 years, I've known about REYS, but discovering the profound impact it has made in this community and beyond has been eye-opening. Over the past 40 years, REYS has touched thousands of lives. Observing our staff's interactions with the kids, building healthy bonds while sharing their faith, reaffirms my belief in our mission to reach local youth with the life-changing gospel of Jesus Christ. At REYS, we're more than just an organization; we're a community. Our volunteers, former youth turned probation officers, and even delivery drivers who once walked through our doors as kids themselves, all share a special connection to REYS. They embody Matthew 5:16, shining their light before others, showcasing the impact of our work. We envision REYS as a beacon where the love of God shines through, impacting lives not just for now, but for eternity. If you've been blessed by our ministry, we'd love to hear your story and give God the glory. REYS has impacted our community in the past, continues to do so today, and we eagerly anticipate what God will do through us in the future. Together, let's reflect on the past, embrace the present, and look forward to the journey ahead as we serve and spread God's love through REYS.
