How to be the hands and feet of Jesus Christ in this world is what New Horizons is all about. Please check out our website at We provide educational opportuinities for at-risk children in Southwest Florida. We are able to provide humanitarian aid to our Caribbean neighbors with our 68-foot cargo schooner, "Star of the Sea." The schooner is also used as a teaching tool for the "Call to Adventure" program that mentors young men at sea.

A Call to Adventure

The schooner hadn't even had time to grow a barnacle before she was off on a new adventure with some young men from the Super Teens program. Ricardo, Luis, Brandon, Juan, and Javier along with hired first mate James Derby came together as a top notch crew. We sailed to Charlotte Harbor and picked deep anchorages each night so the guys could show off their diving skills! Using the Beatitudes as our teaching guide, our daily Bible study came alive in the marine environment. All of these young men have been in the program since they were in the first grade, now in high school they make Ellen and I proud of the young men they are becoming. Many thanks to those whose financial support made this Call to Adventure possible!
