the heart

Great vision starts with a dream and moves with a launch. The Station is a launching pad for nonprofit organizations, ministries, and small business ideas.

Why do many young people need a ‘launching pad’?  

Most people want to live a life with great purpose, but they don’t know how, or they lack resources and support. Many young people have a vision of helping people groups across the globe burning in their hearts. A desire to start non-profit organizations or create small businesses, are often talked about by young adults. But getting from point ‘A’ to point ‘B’, to make these visions a reality, can seem impossible. “Burnout” is also a common word we hear; people pouring into the lives of others while they deplete themselves.  We believe that this world needs resilient leaders, who will persevere through difficult circumstances. Healthy leaders build unified teams that create thriving organizations. 

Through mentorship, our strategy brings wisdom, strength and essential resources to non-profit organizations, small businesses, ministries and individuals. Young men and women will be activated with critical tools, to use as they venture into leadership roles.  

The Station guides the young generation to solutions, so that their dreams will be released on this earth!
