Project Transformation Central Texas began organizing in 2015 after many years of prayer, conversations, visits to the Dallas-based program, and dreaming of bringing the program to the Central Texas Conference. Following a visioning meeting in October 2015 which brought over 50 clergy and lay leaders together, a Core Leadership Team was created to guide start-up efforts and lay the groundwork for replicating the ministry of Project Transformation in Central Texas. With support from Project Transformation National, the Central Texas Chapter launched in the greater Fort Worth area in 2017 with 20 college interns, dozens of sponsoring churches and impacted the lives of 168 children in neighborhoods that are under-resourced. Programs are held in FUMC Bedford and George C. Clarke Elementary School in Fort Worth. Looking forward to future summers, our vision is to expand the program within Tarrant County and to other parts of the Central Texas Conference.
In the summer of 2022, PT Central Texas hired 11 young adults to provide programming for 45 children.
