Better Than Prayer in Schools by Kip Jacob

On Friday, The NY Times shared the story of Kip Jacob's church in Portland, Oregon and the amazing partnership they've had with Roosevelt High School. "Help from Evangelicals (Without Evangelizing)" The Times called it. In this Q Talk, Kip Jacob shares their story—the story of what happens when a mostly white, affluent suburban church shows up at the doorsteps of an urban high school with a desire to work together. Through his experience, Jacob challenges churches to get involved with their neighborhood schools and invest in their renewal. You can also hear more about the astonishing partnership that started the whole thing— between Sam Adams, the first openly gay mayor of Portland, and Kevin Palau—in Palau's Q Talk here.
