Agape Corner provides a community of (i) affordable, quality residential housing, (ii) training and well-paid employment and (iii) Christian mentoring – all about one mile east of downtown Durham, N.C.
Houses are open to single young men 21 years or older (Mentees) who believe that God has a plan for their lives and wants them to flourish. Mentees are either in school, attending job training or working – which may be in one of Agape Corner’s businesses. When they’re not working or studying, Mentees spend time with one another and with Mentors, sharing meals and participating in social activities.
Mentors can be (i) single Christian men who live at Agape Corner – possibly graduate students or men with outside careers who choose to live with the Mentees for a season, (ii) older men who live outside Agape Corner but who commit to spend meaningful time each week with the Mentees, and (iii) older married couples who live at Agape Corner.
Both Mentees and Mentors commit to participating in a mentoring curriculum covering topics including our identity in Christ, theology, community, prayer, character, marriage, faith and work, finances and sexual purity.
