The 25 Project serves locally in McKinney, Texas.  Although the 25 Project was serving orphans and vulnerable children around the world, our team prayed for God to provide a place for the 25 Project to serve children locally.  God certainly answered. He gave the 25 Project the opportunity to work with kids right in the city where our headquarters are located, McKinney Housing Authority!

Years ago a ministry dedicated to reaching at-risk kids in McKinney’s lower-income housing was begun. The ministry was thriving for years, but was unable to continue. God so graciously called the 25 Project to step in and continue that ministry to kids and their families. This new ministry we call Illumin8.

The 25 Project launched Illumin8, with Isaiah 30:21 as our guiding verse: And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it”, when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left.  Under God’s direction, Illumin8 was begun!

Today, Angie Farquhar, serves as the 25 Project Director of Illumin8.  Angie is not new to the 25 Project or inner-city ministry.  Angie has traveled on mission with the 25 Project to Sierra Leone, and sponsors a child from the Waterloo district in Sierra Leone. Angie has also led inner-city ministry at another apartment complex in McKinney.  She has excitement, experience, and a passion for reaching children for Christ.  We are absolutely thrilled to have Angie on the 25 Project team.

If you live in the Collin County area we hope you will join us!
