Ishmael’s Promise is a collaboration between the Ebenezer Baptist Church Deacon Board and several other organizations providing an important mentoring program for males and females primarily between the ages of 17 and 24.
Deacons and volunteers meet with the young people once a month on the Saturday proceeding the first Sunday of the month from 12 pm to 3 pm. During this time the following activities take place—Bible Study, exercise, challenge games, lunch, life skills and workshops. Mentoring takes place in group and one-on-one settings. The young people are also involved with activities that give back to the community.
We typically meet on Saturdays before the first Sunday from 12 pm - 3 pm but occasionally Saturday before second Sunday
