One Church : One School
THE Public School & Church Partnership INITIATIVE
Education in Oklahoma is in crisis. Through the 2018 School Shutdown for funding we learned that there is broad community support for our local community public schools from businesses, parents, grandparents, pastors, and churches.
Oklahoma has 1,787 school sites across 77 counties with nearly 700,000 Oklahoma kids attending each weekday.
At the same time there are approximately 4,500 churches across the state.
If only about 40% of our churches would adopt a local school site to provide supplies & resources, tutoring, and encouragement for teachers, we could begin to help our school kids win.
When your church partner with a local school you agree to come with hands and feet to work. This is not an opportunity to evangelize with words, rather this is an opportunity to show Christ's love in action and deed.
When you partner your local church with a local school site, Pastors for Oklahoma Kids believes you will make an eternal difference in the lives of children and families in your community.
But it's not for lone rangers. The commitment to go deep at ONE school site for an extended period of time will take years. Over the next few months, we will begin to share resources, stories, and practical ideas to show you how others are already doing this in Oklahoma and you can too. Let's change the story of public schools in Oklahoma...for good!
