Since our founding in 1998, Project Transformation has addressed three unique challenges with one program: 1) how to meet the academic, physical, social-emotional, and spiritual needs of children, 2) how to provide meaningful ways for college-age young adults to explore ministry opportunities and develop as young principled leaders for the church and the world; and 3) how to help churches connect with their communities.
Project Transformation’s collaborative model of ministry harnesses the creative energy and leadership of college age young adults, who live in intentional community, and lead summer and after-school programs for children and youth in various underserved neighborhoods. PT’s young adults (PTNT Corps Members) meet with church and nonprofit leaders to explore various ministry-related vocations and spend time discerning their vocational call to life-long service. Programs are held at churches located in neighborhoods that are under-resourced, thereby helping those churches connect with their communities. Dozens of other churches and organizations throughout Dallas and the surrounding region partner together to support this work, investing in these young lives with their time and resources.
Children – College-Age Young Adults – Churches. This is a win-win-win formula, but relationships are at the heart of everything we do. It is through relationships that communities are transformed.
