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, and in 2016 we expanded to a second site on Hollywell Avenue, by the rail trail in downtown Chambersburg. These sites serve as centers of ministry in one of our town’s most under-resourced neighborhoods.
Over more than 25 years of ministry, the organization has grown and added numerous new focuses, including a middle school youth ministry, a high school leadership development program, a community garden for children and neighbors, and a growing focus on the arts.
We believe that NETwork 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. We’d love to have you join us!
