Our East Baltimore location is home to GEM, a life giving inner city ministry of Captivate Church.

GEM meets officially every Wednesday evening, starting at 6:45pm, at 400 N. Luzerne Avenue. GEM is an acronym for the focus of our outreach: Gospel, Education, Mentoring.

Each Wednesday we come together to worship God and then we break into smaller groups for activities like crafts and topical discussions. On a typical week, 50 kids will join us for fun, learning & laughter.

In addition to our weekly gathering, we spend time with kids who are enrolled in the GEM program during the week. We find that ministry can happen anywhere: eating a meal, taking them to school, praying over life’s circumstances or just hanging out and laughing. Our kids are amazing and they often teach us more than we feel that we teach them. We believe in our kids and we look forward to seeing them become successful, educated and blessed adults.

In partnership with the Captivate leadership team, GEM is led by Ms. Colleen Smith and her amazing team of volunteers.
