Relationships Grow. Leaders Emerge. Communities Change.

Based on a model founded in 1998 in Dallas, Texas, Project Transformation Oklahoma launched its first summer program in 2002. The program model is designed to address 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 leaders for the church and the world; and 3) how to support churches in connecting with their  neighbors.

Our mission is to transform communities by engaging children, college-age young adults, and churches in purposeful relationships.

The Three C’s: 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.

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 programs for children. Each week, young adult interns meet with nonprofit leaders to explore various service 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 Oklahoma partner together to support this work, investing in these young lives with their time and resources.




Vision: We envision a world that is rooted in love, pursues the equity of all people, and amplifies God's call on every life.
