Arlington’s Faith-Based Culture Helps Youth Excel

This fascinating interview, sponsored by Home Image Advantage (, Rod’s Painting and Cartwright Construction, delves into the value and purpose of faith-based organizations in the evolution of Arlington, Nebraska, recently named the “second best place to raise a child in America.”

Pastor Rick Kanoy and Paster John Hogue answer Lynn Hinderaker’s probing questions about the development of trust among community adults and their youth. Hinderaker takes the conversation into the realm of ethics, morality and interdependence. Both pastors emphasize how their respective churches organize events that help Arlington, Nebraska’s youth “engage” with members of older generations. Finally, there is a discussion about how small villages “lift each other up” in a non-discriminatory way and support those who want to start their lives over again.
