Former NBC “The Voice” finalist Pip, aka Phillip Arnold of Marietta, has started a nonprofit charity to fund local youth in mission work.

Youth in Mission, Corp. has been awarding scholarships over the past two years. This year, Youth in Mission has officially become a nonprofit charity and is focusing on the Cobb County area for young applicants seeking funding for upcoming mission trips. All proceeds go to Youth in Mission scholarships, and donations can be made by going on www.yimcharity.com or sending a check to YiM, 1021 Derby Run, Marietta.

“I’m hoping to fund 10 $1,000 scholarships, and I have a long way to go to raise necessary funds,” said Pip, 2012 recipient of City of Kennesaw’s Key to the City.

In the past, Youth in Mission has funded serious missions such as scholarships to: a student going on a medical mission to Guana, Africa; and students helping domestically with Mississippi Hurricane relief. Pip’s concerts have raised money toward mission trips to Haiti, Vietnam and Guatemala. When he made it to the TV show “The Voice,” Pip knew God had given him reason to connect with young viewers and spread his message of youth serving on mission fields.

To donate visit www.yimcharity.com or send a check to Youth in Mission, 1021 Derby Run, Marietta.
