Building a partnership with a public school is hard work. And it can be daunting to work with a committee at church to discern the best way for you to move ahead, face obstacles, and find a meaningful way to serve students and schools that is helpful and sustainable for both the congregation and the school. But the good news is, there are people in your community that can help you!
Join us for an interactive panel discussion to learn how your church can name and claim the assets you do have that will serve you as you build a partnership and where and how to reach out to other organizations and congregations in your area for support.
About the Panelists:
