HYPE stands for Helping Youth Prepare for Eternity. The purpose of HYPE is to form personal relationships with the kids (ages K-12) by interacting with them on a weekly basis in a mentorship fashion.
Once a month, the AFC students host a Sunday Fun Day to teach a Bible lesson, play games, and eat snacks with the youth. Additionally, AFC students are partnered and given buddies. The partners hang out with the kids and talk to them about Jesus each week at whatever time is convenient for them. This allows the children to form personal relationships with the AFC students.
