Partner Churches

A partner church on the most basic level is a church that agrees to enter into relationship with and support Project Transformation. Partner churches commit volunteer, financial, and spiritual resources to our programming. This partner church support is vital to the young adult interns and the children and youth they serve.

A summer partner church makes a commitment to do three things:

  1. Support an intern financially by providing a portion of his or her living stipend ($1,500 per summer per intern)
  2. During the summer: provide 10-12 volunteers per day for a week of reading one-on-one with children, provide dinner for interns twice during the summer; and invite the sponsored intern to share his/her experience with their congregation
  3. Pray for Project Transformation’s ministry

A year-round partner church fulfills summer commitments and makes a commitment to:

  1. Support a year-round Fellow financially by providing a portion of his or her living stipend
  2. Provide 2-3 volunteers per week for homework and reading help in our afterschool program, provide dinner for Fellows once during the year, and invite the sponsored Fellow to share his/her experience with their congregation
