Lunch Hour Visitation: Building relationships with students is one of the most important aspects of ministry to students. Each day the director of Higher Bound is able to go into the school and invest time building relationships with the students during their lunch hour and is available to talk with students one on one as needed.
Mentors: Higher Bound provides mentors to at risk students. These mentors are committed Christians who volunteer 8-12 hours a week to their student. Mentors take students on outings, help them with homework, and invest time with them at the Higher Bound House.
Fellowship: Occasionally we offer fellowship outings for well deserving students. These outings consist of picnics, hiking, focused spiritual retreats, holiday parties, concerts, outdoor activities, etc., for them to enjoy as a reward for positive behavior.
T.N.T. (Tuesday Night Teaching); (WBS) Wednesday Bible Study; and (TNS) Thursday Night Study: Every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 3-7:00PM (or before) we offer a time for students to learn positive moral values, biblical teaching, and ways they can serve their community, school, and family. T.N.T., WBS, and T.N.S. are held at the HIGHER BOUND HOUSE located at 300 N. 5th St., in Vincennes. TNT and TNS is for middle and high school students, attending Clark and Lincoln.
Safe House: Higher Bound’s most effective ministry is the Higher Bound House which is located at 300 North 5th Street. The house serves as a safe after school alternative and is open from 3:00-7:00 Monday through Friday (times vary). It functions as a safe place where students can be tutored or mentored, play games, build relationships with peers, Higher Bound staff and volunteers, and participate in character building activities based on sound biblical principles.
Ultimate Goals and Aims: Higher Bound House exists to surround middle school students with the love of Christ; build acceptance of their value and worth according to God's design; and empower each to discover his/her God-given purpose and live it out daily.
Making an impact on students by equipping them to impact their world for Christ.
