Mission Critical: Transforming a Generation One School at a Time
Jeremy Del Rio, Co-Founder and Executive Director, 20/20 Vision for Schools
Nationally, the average graduate from a low-income school district reads at an eight grade level. Yet fewer than 50% of students actually graduate from those districts. Should we reasonably expect them to be transformed by the written word of God if they are ill-prepared to read and understand that Word? This educational inequity has been called our nation’s greatest injustice and the civil rights issue of our day. Is there room for urban youth ministries to begin leading on this issue? Explore how churches, parachurches, and youth ministries are transforming public education within a single generation of students by activating congregations, adopting schools, and becoming answers to prayer. No longer limited to school prayer and Bible Clubs, redefine how your youth ministry engages public schools and empowers students to become who God has called them to be.
