The mission of NETwork Ministries is to share in the love of Christ with those who are most vulnerable in our community. We especially seek to equip children and young adults with the skills necessary for spiritual growth, academic achievement, life management, and Christian leadership.
NETwork Ministries began in 1993 under the leadership of Bob Boelter. In its humble beginnings, the ministry’s focus included an after-school program for children, a clothing ministry, Bible studies at the jail, and a Friday night basketball outreach for teens. In 1995, a house was purchased on Redwood Street that serves as a center of ministry in one of Chambersburg’s most under-resourced neighborhoods.
Over the past 20 years, new ministries have begun as the organization has grown, including a middle school youth ministry, a high school leadership development program, and a community garden for children and neighborhood adults. We are currently working to expand into a second site nearby our current facilities.
We believe that NETwork Ministries was birthed in the heart of God. NETwork is a ministry seeking to respond with Christ-centered passion and compassion to the great needs of those who are most vulnerable in our community.
