A Gospel-Driven School

I shared this on Facebook last week (after someone shared it with me), but I figured it would be worth sharing on a wider scale.

Watch this video about Downtown Academy. (No, it has nothing to do with Downton Abbey, although that is what most of us think about at first glance. And I’ve never even watched the show!)

I like this idea because:

  • it is Christ-centered
  • this group has been doing ministry in Athens for 10 years now, and then grew into the school idea
  • they remind me of the Frazee Center
  • I love their connection of Jesus, relationships, and academics as the way to cure poverty

“These kids are capable and we should demand that from them, because nothing else is going to break this cycle of poverty.”

“This is a 50-year, 60-year plan. We’re in this for the long-haul.”
