Mission & Vision
Scranton Rd. Ministries C.D.C. actively contributes to the spiritual, economic and physical restoration of the Greater Cleveland community, with a focus on the west side. Serving in Ohio’s most diverse neighborhood, we are focused on representing, equipping, and investing in our youth and families, and promoting a community-wide revitalization by impacting our neighbors with the life-changing message of Jesus Christ.
Very simply stated, our Vision is To revitalize our community, one life at a time.
We serve a very dynamic, exciting, and yet challenging community- one that suffers from widespread poverty and crime; and increasing teenage pregnancy and school dropout rates. It is within this context that we are committed to live out Isaiah 61:3-4 with the youth and families the Lord has placed within our mission field:
“To bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of His splendor. They will rebuild the ancient ruins and restore the places long devastated; they will renew the ruined cities that have been devastated for generations”.
We’re asking the Lord to transform lives through our ministry- and to fill our community with vibrant Oaks of Righteousness. People who have been restored by God’s love, and equipped with practical skills through our Biblically-based Job Training, Educational Enrichment, Legal Education, Computer Training and Leadership Development services. People who will flourish, and realize they aren’t a self-made success. Instead, they are someone who God has restored to noble purpose- thus allowing the Lord to work through them to restore others as well.
