Mission Statement

Boy With a Ball is a unique grassroots organization whose mission is to build and send out teams to reach young people and their families, drawing them into mentoring relationships and small group communities from which they can be equipped not only to thrive, but then turn and reach others.


Boy With a Ball is based on a theory of change, which includes the following four elements:

  • Aggressive Outreach
    This is where we form highly-skilled teams capable of walking out into where young people are in order to get to know them and establish a relationship with them. These regular times of walking out into young people and their families' neighborhoods allow these relationships to be deepened over time.
  • One-to-one Mentoring
    As these relationships are deepened, Boy With a Ball team members look for openings and opportunities to invite individuals into mentoring relationships. These relationships involve regular either formal or informal meetings where the young person can be cared for and equipped
  • Small Group Communities
    Alongside these mentoring relationships, young people and their families are also invited into regular small group meetings where they can share their hearts and be equipped. It is our belief that mentoring alone without this involvement in a small group can be almost counter-productive. The accountability and power of being around other young leaders and to be invited into supporting one another in their process is both encouraging and provoking and allows for deeper levels of equipping.
  • Equipping/Education
    From these mentoring relationships and small group communities, individuals are equipped not only to overcome their own issues and life situations but then to go further and to be able to turn and equip others.

This is the dramatic power within Boy With a Ball teams in that they begin a grassroots movement of young leaders spreading across a city, developing more mentoring relationships and small group communities and equipping other young people and families until the city has been transformed.
