Agape Development Ministries

Agape Development Ministries is a neighborhood organization bringing hope and transformation to Houston's Third Ward.  In 2005, Kirk & Amanda Craig bought a house in 77021 and began hosting 18-to-25-year-old inner-city young adults for meals, family games, movies, and Bible study several nights each week.  The ministry has grown and now includes after-school programming for K-5th, a weekly youth discipleship night, sports teams for girls and boys, a residential, discipleship-life skills program for 18-25 year olds, a community garden, and neighborhood safety initiatives.  Everything Agape program or project works toward the long term health of 1 neighborhood.  Many of the staff live and raise their families in the community.  It’s more than a job for us, it’s a way of life.  Our vision is to build a community in which every family can thrive, and all parents can be excited about their children’s future.
 
We have 2 areas of strategic focus.  Agape is completing a sequence of discipleship and life-skills programming from age 5 to 25 in our target neighborhood.  Every child should have a path toward healthy adulthood with the resources and opportunity to succeed, and low-income neighborhoods need this help most.  Second, Agape is eliminating dangerous obstacles on this path to successful adulthood.  Third Ward children walk a “path” littered with crack houses, stray dogs, drug dealers, and other criminal elements decreasing their odds of success.  Agape works together with neighbors to eliminate these systemic problems.
