Training Update

We are currently hosting trainings for the 2019/2020 academic school year. 

We are so grateful to the nearly 1200 members of our community that attended a training last year and we look forward to growing the ARISE2Read family! Together we CAN: SAVE A CHILD. SAVE A FAMILY. SAVE A CITY. 

We kicked off another year on August 22nd, so please check our website often for updated training registrations.  If you would like to keep in touch with ARISE2Read, you can be added to our mailing list by clicking here.  Thank you for making a difference for our most precious resource, our children!

Community Church

A community church is one that is in close proximity to the school. The community church will commit to minister to the spiritual needs of the community members as the Adopter Church(es) partner with them to share the gospel and strengthen families.

  • Find a Lead Person to coordinate with the Adopter Church.
  • Partner with Adopter Churches to minister to students, teachers and their families in order to find opportunities to share the gospel.
  • Help staff the Good News Club that meets one afternoon a week after school
  • Host events at the Community Church (the gospel can be freely shared at these) for the purpose of ministering to the teachers, students and families.  Examples:
    • Fathers’ Breakfast
    • Mothers’ Luncheon
    • After school Bible Clubs/Math and Reading Camps
    • Summer Vacation Bible School
