Host Churches

Churches reach out to their neighbors by partnering with Project Transformation to host programs for children.  Church development that happens in partnership with Project Transformation is multidimensional and interdisciplinary. Through this partnership, host churches are empowered to better cultivate two key traits of discipleship: radical hospitality and active listening. Host churches are trained each year in best practices for leveraging the program by one another and Project Transformation. First and foremost, church members and staff are able to display radical hospitality as they greet children and families, lead chapel services during the program each week, and plan and attend Family Fun Night events with the young adults. Beyond this, the host church also enters a relationship of active listening in order to better learn and understand the community’s needs and assets.

"Project Transformation became the heartbeat of Longstreet UMC. The campers pounded onto the campus ready to experience a day full of love, laughter, exuberance and discipline. The college interns were the medicine for brokenness; because they exemplified the Fruits of the Spirit to the campers and their families. PT revived Longstreet UMC by bringing children, young adults, families and volunteers onto our campus. It has given us hope and strengthened our faith In God. "
