Be Love Revolution - Middle School Discipleship Mentoring
Be Love Revolution (BLR) began in 2013 in Ann Arbor, Michigan with the intention of helping young women develop a personal relationship with Jesus and grow into mature disciples by personally accompanying young women on their journey of faith through one-on-one mentoring and discipleship. Be Love Revolution operates in cooperation with Renewal Ministries, a Catholic ministry of evangelization and renewal throughout the world
The mission of BLR is three-fold:
- Be His: Helping young women know the personal and transformative love of Jesus.
- Be Free: Forming young women to live freely and confidently as daughters of God.
- Be Love: Equipping and empowering young women to be God’s love in the world today.
The process begins with inviting middle-school aged girls to Pine Hill Camp where they have a full-immersion evangelization experience. At camp, they encounter Christ and develop a hunger for more. Camp is followed up by weekly small group meetings throughout the school year (talks, testimonies, small groups, praise & worship) that are lead by high-school/college aged mentors who themselves have gone through the Be Love process. The discipleship groups allow for girls to talk about real issues and real faith joys and challenges. Small groups allow for the girls to form strong bonds of friendship and a sisterhood. Groups meet in a parish setting.
BLR chapters have expanded beyond the Lansing Diocese to other US locations and Canada.
BLR also does Mission Trips, Service Opportunities, Small Groups and Peer Support, One-on-one Mentoring, Revolutionary Health Events: Education of Mind, Body & Spirit for Teenage Girls, Leadership Training, Resources/Support for Moms, Bible Studies, retreats, Praise and Worship Nights, and Mother-Daughter Events.
In the first six years of this program two thousand girls who have attended their events in an ongoing way including those who have been personally discipled and mentored. Young women who participate in this process are ON FIRE for the Lord and desire to live their lives for Jesus.
