Church and school partnerships represent the most strategic
approach toward community transformation. These two institutions
bring people together more than anything else and offer the most
holistic opportunity to promote change.
Why Churches Are Critical To Changing Our Nation
One significant advantage of churches is that they are located
everywhere. There is an average of fourteen churches for every
public school in America. They are
to the -needs of the people since they are located in the heart
of the community. Churches also offer the largest volunteer
force in the nation -- enabling strategic mobilization to bring
about lasting positive change. Likewise, churches already have
buildings for use in hosting community programs. They also offer
a combined spiritual and moral framework for assisting people to
make good choices.
