In 1999 individuals who were police officers and involved in youth prison ministry came together to answer the need of a Christian youth ministry that would impact our youth before they were involved with gangs, drugs and other criminal activity that would affect the rest of their lives. From this need that God had put on their hearts Agape Youth Ministry was formed.
Since this beginning, Agape Youth Ministry has done weekend outreaches, week and month long youth camps, and service projects that have involved hundreds of youth and church groups coming to its Agape Youth Ranch and its partnered ranches such the Perdue Ranch. From this activity the Ministry has seen how our youth were positively impacted by developing a relationship between kids and animals such as horses and dogs.
From these camps Agape Youth Ministry developed its residential Agape Youth Ranch Academy. The premise for the academy is to have a ranch in a rural setting that struggling teens who were dealing with educational, emotional, relationship and self-identity issues could be in a Christian environment without the distractions of their current environment.
In 2016 the Agape Youth Ranch was given to GAP Ministries for its Foster Care Program in the Tucson area to provide summer camps for their foster kids.
In 2018 Agape Youth Ministry started its Scholarship Program. providing financial assistance to those youth wanting to attend programs that provided a closer relationship with Christ.
In 2019 White Mountain Youth INC (In Christ) became one of the partnered ministries in the White Mountains of Arizona.
In 2020 Valley of the Son Youth INC (In Christ) became a partner Ministry of Agape Youth Ministry in the Maricopa
County of Arizona
