Agape Boarding School
With the sincere desire to help the lives of troubled children, the Agapé Boarding School (a ministry of Agapé Baptist Church), was born. It was founded in April, 1990, by James and Kathy Clemensen, along with their son and daughter-in-law, Bryan and Kirsty Clemensen. The ministry first began in the Clemensen's home. It was just a year and a half after taking in their first boys, that their enrollment had grown to 14 students. Their home/school had outgrown its space. By October of 1991, the opportunity arose for the school to move to Othello, Washington, onto a decommissioned Air Force base, where the school quickly grew to 160 students.

Early in 1995, Agapé Boarding School realized they needed to search for a different, more desirable location. In May of '95, the size of the school was reduced to 30 students as their search for a new campus began. Finally, in April of 1996, the "ideal" location was found, and Agapé school was moved to Stockton, Missouri, where it opened with an enrollment of 40 students. In only one year, the school's attendance had grown to 110 students.

On the fateful morning of June 6, 1998, the Agapé school dining hall, the new chapel, and the office complex, caught fire and burned to the ground. Thankfully, no one was injured, and our student dorm was not damaged. By the grace of God, within one year of the fire, a beautiful new building was constructed, rising up from where there had once been only a pile of ashes.

Truly God has been good to us. With His help, Agape's plans are to continue to grow, with the goal of taking in over 200 students in the coming months. Agapé Boarding School is a ministry of Agapé Baptist Church. The Pastor and Board are the final authority on all matters.

Parenting Rebellious Teens

One day you wake up and find that life has changed forever. Instead of greeting you with a hug, your little boy rolls his eyes when you say "good morning" and shouts, "You're ruining my life!"

Still others experiment with alcohol, tobacco or drugs. So how can you tell the difference between normal teen rebellion versus dangerous behavior? And what's the best way for a parent to respond?

Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD)

Many families of defiant children live in a home that has become a battleground. In the beginning, the daily struggles can be expected. After all, we knew that problems would occur. Initially, stress can be so subtle that we lose sight of a war, which others do not realize is occurring. We honestly believe that we can work through the problems.

Outbursts, rages, and strife become a way of life (an emotionally unhealthy way of life). We set aside our own needs and focus on the needs of our children. But what does it cost us?

The Strong-Willed Out-of-Control Teen

The standard disciplinary techniques that are recommended for “typical” teenagers do not take into account the many issues facing teens with serious behavioral problems. Disrespect, anger, violent rages, self-injury, running away from home, school failure, hanging-out with the wrong crowd, drug abuse, theft, and legal problems are just some of the behaviors that parents of defiant teens will have to learn to control.
