So grateful to have experienced “The Power of Community” firsthand

My church has had the unique opportunity to partner with the Community School movement in Tulsa.   “The Power of Community” in Tulsa People Magazine’s August 2011 issue tells the impactful story of community schools in Tulsa and highlights our adopted school, Mark Twain Elementary in one section.

I am so proud to share in this great work with Reading Buddies, Lunch Buddies, Science Enrichment leaders and so many more.  I’m also honored to work with educational heroes at Mark Twain like Dr. Diane Hensley and Sheri Carpenter.  A few of the pictures in the article are from our 2nd DreamBuilders Rhythm and Arts Camp.  If you can open the video link below, it is of the Glee Choir singing “What Faith Can Do” by Kutless at our camp finale in June.

My encouragement to anyone who wants to make a difference in the life of kids who desperately need to hold onto their big dreams, and who also need practical help in achieving those dreams is:  Read this great article and PARTNER WITH A COMMUNITY SCHOOL!
