Who We Are and What We Do

Companions and Advocates on the Road of Life

atlas-logo-white.png

Atlas strives to be advocates for those in need as they deal with life’s

relational, physical, emotional, financial, and/or spiritual struggles.

We strive to love unconditionally in every mentor relationship.

Our goal for every on-going client is three-fold:

1. Honest self-assessment of their situation,

2. renewed hope for their future,

   3. holistic growth and betterment in their lives.

 

The spiritual elements encouraged for successful life change include prayer,

gentle sharing of the Gospel of Christ through actions and words,

and encouraging participation in the local church.

Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person

falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble.

— Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 NLT​

Why the Name "Atlas"

          The name Atlas was coined when Atlas of Sioux Center, the original Atlas ministry, was created. That ministry was then expanded into several independent Atlas ministries across the Midwest with a few scattered nationally. All of the Atlas ministries have since been loosely associated as a mutual support for the ministry directors. The name "ATLAS" stands for our hope for personal spiritual growth of our client base. The name is an acrostic as follows:

  • ​      A is for Attaining defined as intentionally working toward a specific goal

  •     T is for understanding and believing the Truth of God's word from the                 Scriptures

  •        ​L is for Love defined as God's love (agape) and sharing it with others

  •        And

  •      S is for Self-Discipline meaning engaging with the Christian church and                       living a positive Christian life for Christ
