GoMAD is new national initiative between ROC (Redeeming Our Communities), Urban Saints and the CPA (Christian Police Association), to encourage teams of young people to engage with their community and tackle community issues, with access to police support. GoMAD is endorsed by Chief Constable Olivia Pinkney, National Police Chiefs' Council Lead for Children and Young People.
Transformed people transformed lives and at Urban Saints our heart is not only to see lives transformed through young people entering into a relationship with Jesus but for those young people to become agents of change in their communities.
We've collected together some resources from Energize to inspire and encourage your group to engage with their communities and maybe take up the GoMAD challenge.
