To see youth at risk become successful Christian leaders in their home, church, community and world.
To provide holistic training to former street boys, enabling them to achieve their God-given potential as leaders and disciples of Jesus Christ.
Through God's sovereign intervention and direction each leader-in-training has chosen to leave his life on the streets and submit himself to the training at Casa Gabriel. The inspiration of Casa Gabriel is to train and prepare them to be an ambassador for God in whatever job or career they may choose to follow. One of the goals of the Casa Gabriel ministry is not just to provide housing and basic care for youth in crisis but also to provide training programs touching all areas of their lives. These areas include spiritual, physical, intellectual, social, emotional and missional (purpose). We believe this holistic approach gives them the opportunity to achieve their God-given potential as leaders and disciples of Jesus Christ, equipped to impact their home, church, community and world. The training both formal and informal is an intentional and an integral part of every life at Casa Gabriel.
Our prayer is that these boys, without a spiritual heritage, will grasp that God loves them and has redeemed them. God is making them a part of a very large spiritual family made of individuals who realize the power of God's love and redemption around the world.
II Corinthians 5:20 We are therefore Christ's ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ's behalf: Be reconciled to God.
