Our desire is that Orange Mound be transformed into a place of peace, fulfilling God’s vision in Zechariah 8:4 & 5 where “once again, men and women of a ripe old age will sit in the streets. . .each with cane in hand and where city streets will be filled with boys and girls playing there”.
Redzone Ministries is working towards the social and spiritual renewal of the Orange Mound Community by building strong children, strong families, and strong communities. RedZone Ministries (RZ), a partner ministry of Memphis Leadership Foundation, is an evangelical outreach ministry that serves urban young people between the ages of 9-18 who live in one of Memphis’ most under-served communities.
Committed to an asset-based community development approach, RZ is actively involved in the Orange Mound Neighborhood at the street level and is effectively supporting leaders and organizations already serving the community. School-aged young people are positively impacted through relationships with staff and volunteers.
