Monthly Leaders Gatherings (Pastors for NC Children)

Recurring Event see all

February 23, 2022 @ 10:00 am 11:00 am

You are invited to join us this Wednesday, February 23rd — from 10-11am to meet other leaders in churches and education from across NC as we work to support Public Schools and NC’s children. These are open meetings, so please feel free to invite friends and colleagues to join us as well! 

Register in advance for this meeting:

(This is the same link for each monthly gathering during 2021-2022 on the 4th Wednesday at 10am.)

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting. (If you need to join late or leave early, you are welcome to do so!)

Here’s our agenda:

  • Brief Introductions from those on the call
  • Announcements & Upcoming Events
  • Mission Amplify Updates
  • Next steps/Next Meeting Dates (This is a monthly call that you can join as you are able!)

These monthly gatherings are geared to clergy and lay leaders who are interested in supporting public schools, and school leaders interested in the intersections of faith and advocacy for public schools. You might be leading a group of volunteers with schools or chair the social justice committee or be clergy wanting to learn more, etc. You might also be church members who is an educator or want to start a group working on school support in your congregation. All are welcome!

Our hope is that this conversation builds a network of interested participants across the state in conversations and collective action to bring systemic change and justice for public schools, especially in more fully funding public education and creating equitable schools for all of NC’s children. These are starting as informal meetings to start the conversation and build up leaders to keep reaching out further across the state. 

It will be a time for introductions, a bit of teaching or discussion about current situations/policies/bills that are coming up, and a chance to support one another in the work. We know lots of people are doing this work of supporting our local schools in silos and in various counties, and we need people connecting to make a bigger impact, be encouraged, share ideas, etc.
