GirlsFOCUSED Mentoring Group

GirlsFOCUSED is a faith-based mentoring program serving the Chicagoland area. Our organization is motivated by God’s love to serve, support, and love young girls. Our purpose is to help young girls between the ages of 13-18 achieve excellence across all life areas through our 1:1 mentoring program and quarterly group activities.

  • We "keep it real" and relevant for this current generation without pushing a “religious agenda”
  • We are a resource for families, providing another layer of support because it truly “takes a village”

If you want to learn more about GirlsFOCUSED and/or want to enroll a young lady, you are invited to attend our first parent meeting. We look forward to seeing you there! You may also contact us for more information.

Here's a snippet from one of our girls...

"There are so many great things about GirlsFOCUSED, I barely even know where to start. First, Dr. Baker, Mrs. Murray, and every person on the GirlsFOCUSED board are so incredibly committed. They strive to help young women succeed in life by giving us an opportunity to have a relationship with God. What I love is that the founders of this organization make us girls feel like we are their number one, but what I love even more is that we actually aren't-- God is..."

From the desk of the Executive Director:

Greetings on behalf of FOCUSED Ministries, Inc.,

We are so pleased that God has led you to this site. In doing so, He has opened a door and provided an opportunity for us to introduce ourselves to you as to who we are and what we do.

We are a non-profit organization with the simple but awesome mission: to help young women achieve excellence. Like other social service programs, we strive to address multiple facets of life, however, we are different. We are motivated by a God-given burden to love and a deep desire to embrace and lift up all of our young sisters. We are unashamedly faith-based and all of our work is grounded in Scripture.

At FOCUSED, we understand that life is often a bumpy journey. As we travel along the road of life, God allows certain paths to intersect for the specific purpose of building relationships. It is through the blessing of relationship with one another that we are strengthened. With God in our midst, the strengthened are also then empowered to achieve excellence. This is our testimony and we want it to be yours, too. We believe you were created to be excellent in all things. We want you to also believe this truth and live excellently!

We invite you to seek us out and make a connection that just might be life changing!</br >
God Bless You!


Executive Director

From Our Facebook Page

Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me (Philippians 3:12 NIV).

Almighty God, maker of heaven and earth, the giver of every good and perfect gift. The one who gives life and sustains it. The source of peace, joy, and happiness. You are Lord of Lords, Lord of every nation, Lord of all people, Lord of the whole world. You are the creator and we the created. You are mighty and we are weak. It is You who sees all and knows all and we are often blind and confused.

Knowing that You are God, we give You total and complete control over this ministry - control over hearts and mind, and control over our lives so that You can direct us in the way that You would have us to go. Keep us humble, faithful, honest, and focused on the race that You have given us to run and let us run the race with patience knowing that the victory has already been won.

We pray that Your Holy Spirit would dwell among us as we work in Your vineyard here on earth. That we may bring forth a harvest of souls which is Your desire and our only goal. Continue to bless all that are currently associated with this ministry and those that will be. It is my prayer that we stay in You, in Your Word, and gain the knowledge that only You can give for there is Life in the Word.

Humbly submitted,
Rev Michael Gibson, Governing Board of Directors
