ROP Youth Ministries

Restoration Outreach Programs (ROP) Youth Ministries are about creating a sense of family and home for so many of our youth that have not known what consistency and acceptance feel like.

Their smiles will melt you… their stories grab you… their hearts embrace you.  They are silly, energetic, and contagious.  They are looking for those who will laugh at their jokes, listen to their stories, and… invest in their lives.Mentoring time

Please take some time and read about the different ministry opportunities available with Spark, Ignite, and Impact.  If you have any questions or would like to schedule a visit, please contact us at 720-859-2513.  We invite you to come meet our youth and prepare to have your hearts stolen!

Mission Statement:
ROP Youth Ministries provides a consistent, Christ-centered, safe place for children and teens living along East Colfax.

Philosophy of Ministry:
Volunteers and staff live out the gospel of Jesus Christ by having a ministry of presence and by developing redemptive friendships with our youth and our community.  We help to meet the youth’s holistic needs by introducing them to other ROP ministry partners and other ministry network opportunities throughout the Denver Metro Area.


In July 2010, Prodigal Gatherings changed its name to ROP Youth Ministries, primarily to reduce confusion and to help newcomers understand that Prodigal Gatherings and Heart to Hand Resource Center – now ROP Resources Ministries – all work together as a unified whole under the umbrella of Restoration Outreach Programs.  Before the name change, ROP Youth Ministries operated for more than 15 years, first as Prodigal Coffee House and then Prodigal Gatherings.
