The Standard is a faith-based after-school program sponsored by MBA’s community partner, Faith United Methodist Church.
The Standard exists to enable young people to become passionate followers of Jesus Christ and works to nurture followers through leadership training, team-building, community service, and Christian education. The youth group was named by Jerry Wilson, Lead Minister, and comes from the King James Bible verse Isaiah 59:19:
So shall they fear the name of the Lord from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.
