COMMENTARY: A new evangelical engagement with public schools | Religion News Service

The people from SouthLake Church were not content with one and done, however; they have “adopted” Roosevelt High School and made the relationship the central component of the church’s ongoing public engagement these past five years.

From the volunteers operating the clothes closet where kids access free outfits and toiletries, to the SouthLake staff member who works at the high school every day on the congregation’s dime, the church people have become a permanent helping presence. The church volunteers have all agreed not to evangelize and, to this point, there have been no reports of anyone breaking that pledge.

Thanks. God bless.
