Partnering your church family with a public school can be a rewarding experience, but it also presents some unique challenges.

The Mission-Minded Guide to Church and School Partnerships offers practical steps congregations can take to make a difference with the children in their community.

From basic organization, training, safety, and planning, leaders will learn how to share the vision and effectively recruit and train volunteers. Most importantly, leaders will discover how to begin a collaborative, trusting relationship with students, administrators, and teachers.

In addition, there are suggestions for sharing information about the partnership through communication tools like newsletters and special Sundays for welcoming the schools, teachers, principals, and more.

Inspire your church family to embrace the power they have to change lives and make a difference in their community.
