"And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones, he will certainly not lose his reward. " ~ Matthew 10:42
Cool Water Ministries is a 501(c)3 non-profit Christian transition-home located in Mandeville, Jamaica where young men live before stepping into mainstream society. It is our desire to help prepare Jamaica's young men for their future by bridging the gap between the disadvantaged situations they come from and the world in which they are about to enter.
Participants are mentored in a Christian-based curriculum while experiencing a family environment that encourages thinking, learning, and personal growth. Our purpose driven teaching is facilitated through various learning formats intended to develop the whole person.
While serving as their resident directors, we provide mentoring in life, academic, spiritual, and leadership skills. Our belief is that upon completion, this will set each young person on the proper path to where they can reach their full potential in God, be prepared for transitioning into mainstream society, and positively influence Jamaica's future.
In addition, we serve as their advocates by partnering with others from the community to ensure these young men have every opportunity for gaining employment or furthering their education.
As you navigate through our website, please pray for the young people of Jamaica, and if Cool Water Ministries appears to be a ministry you would like to be involved with, we would be blessed to have you as a partner. Also, you can learn more about us through our Blog at http://coolwaterjamaica.wordpress.com/
Serving others for Christ, one person at a time.
