Better Than Prayer in Schools
What Role Can Churches Play in Community Renewal?
by Kip Jacob
On Friday, The NY Times
shared the story of Kip Jacob's church
in Portland, Oregon and the amazing partnership they've had with Roosevelt High School. "Help from Evangelicals (Without Evangelizing)" The Times
called it. In this Q Talk, Kip Jacob shares their story—the story of what happens when a mostly white, affluent suburban church shows up at the doorsteps of an urban high school with a desire to work together. Through his experience, Jacob challenges churches to get involved with their neighborhood schools and invest in their renewal.
