Champions of Hope is excited about the possibility of having your small group serve through our ministry in South Dallas!Â We know the Lord will be glorified when groups who are living out the Gospel together come humbly into loving, Christ-inspired service together.
We believe that RELATIONSHIPS built on Christ-centered love and mutual transformation is the key to glorifying the Lord in South Dallas.Â This belief, that relationships are necessary for any true transformation, is reflected in our opportunities for partnership listed below.Â All levels of partnership will be most honoring to the Lord if they involve sincere investment in building relationships based on his call to love and go make disciples.Â This takes time and that is why we have asked a minimum commitment level for each option.
We ask that every member of the small group attend an orientation to get better acquainted with the organization regardless of the service area.Â Please contact Billy Rose to register for an orientation. Â firstname.lastname@example.org 214-669-3552
Options for Partnering
Mentoring (2-9 years)
Members of your group can enter into the mentorship relationship through a one on one relationship with a child.Â Other members can be involved by getting to know the children and families through those who mentor, praying regularly for specific needs, or helping support the matches financially.
Small Group Leader (1 year)
Weekly bible studies are held in South Dallas for middle school aged students. Small group leaders consistently challenge and facilitate discussion with the students in groups of 3-4.
Provide Meals at Bible Studies (1 year)
Your group can provide dinner to the kids, leaders, and mentors once a month (or more). Five to eight members of your group can deliver at 5:30pm and stay around for an hour to talk with the kids about what they learned during the bible study.
Serving a school (1 year)
Your group can volunteer regularly at one of our partner schools in various capacities including (but not limited to):
- after school tutoring
- office volunteer
- after school club volunteer (art, dance, music, band etcâ€¦)
- sports volunteer (football, soccer, basketball, etcâ€¦)
- Your own idea- we encourage people to use their gifts and bless the school and help build relationships
More clear guidelines and expectations will be determined based on needs of the school.
Adopt a teacher (1 year)
Your group can adopt a teacher to build a relationship to encourage the teacher in his/her job of educating students.Â The group would be in contact with the teacher throughout the month and serve in the classroom at least once a month.Â
