Texas Federation for Children Growth Fund, Texas Public Policy Foundation and Clergy United 4 Change have united to launch the Pastors for Parent Empowerment Summit.

Parents and parishioners are demanding more opportunities for their children to access a high-quality education. This demand by parents to have a say in where their children attend school and what they are being taught needs to be addressed. As Pastors, we seek to ensure that every child has access to an education that meets their needs – particularly low-income and minority children in our communities. As a clergy member, thought mentor and community leader, you can lead the way to a better education, stronger families and a more fulfilling life for your congregation.

Join us, along with our distinguished speakers from local and national leadership organizations to learn how you can empower parents and communities to serve families and Christ at the Pastors for Parent Empowerment Summit.
