Impacting Lawrenceville thru Strategic Partnerships and Community Transformation Initiatives
We believe to impact an entire city it will only happen as we intentionally focus on a collaborative investment to see a collective impact. A collaborative and collective approach involves prayer, PEOPLE, and place as we serve the people of Lawrenceville and meet the needs in the city. One of the greatest opportunities is to raise up the next generation of leaders in Lawrenceville.
Legacy of Leaders
In 5 years(2023), Lawrenceville will be a city that nurtures the heart of every child. Together we will create opportunities for children/students in the Central Gwinnett cluster to discover their God-given purpose, passion, and influence.
