Location & Hours
JumpStart goes out into the community of Chandler AZ. When people ask how we chose the sites I share that when we first started we drove around with the police and asked where the need was. They pointed us to two high crime low income areas. We have been there since 2000. We added a third site when some of our kids moved and begged us to come and do sidewalk in their new neighborhood. God has filled our team's hearts with compassion for the children in our community and around the world. Joanne Sweeney, JumpStart Ministries visionary & leader, knows that God has given her a testimony for her to share that will bring hope to others. She recently questioned God about what would be the next step for JumpStart when she ran into a young man working at a local grocery store who recognized her from one of the Sunday School locations. He attended JumpStart when he was in the 3rd grade, which was approximately 12 years prior! The young man thanked Joanne and explained to her that, he not only remembered what was taught at JumpStart, but that he was doing well since graduating from high school! JumpStart Ministries made an impact on this young man's life...God touched his life and he was forever changed! This is but one story from the thousands of lives God has touched through JumpStart Ministries in 15 years! Imagine the stories we won't hear about until we get to heaven!
