Virtual Gathering: Church-School Partnerships

Churches and schools can work together for the benefit of students and families. Join us on June 18 when special guests Girien Salazar from the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference and Marilyn Lee from Loving Houston will lead us in learning best practices for churches and schools working together.

This virtual gathering will inspire pastors and ministers by telling the story of Loving Houston’s impact on Houston schools and churches while providing practical steps and resources for churches to serve schools in their own communities.
