Partner Schools Ministry

We show Christ’s love to the most vulnerable in Kansas City by providing hope through education and literacy initiatives.

Interested in Serving?

We build relationships, share knowledge and serve children and families in need. By showing Christ’s love to the most vulnerable through educational opportunities, we believe we can break the cycle of poverty in Kansas City. Share your unique gifts by empowering people in Kansas City to stop the cycle of poverty and helping those in need to become self-sufficient! You can do this by:

  • Helping at upcoming Partner School Events.
  • Serving during regular school hours in Resurrection partner schools as a tutor or classroom buddy.
  • Tutoring children after school at Grace United.
  • Sharing your love of reading and distribute books to students and join the bookmobile team.
  • Becoming a liaison or an assistant to a liaison at one of our partner schools.

Public School Ministry

At Resurrection Blue Springs, we work specifically with Wendell Phillips Elementary and our members are encouraged to participate there to build community with each other and with participants from Resurrection Downtown.

Wendell Phillips is located at 2400 Prospect Ave. KCMO (view website). For more information on serving at Wendell Phillips, contact Sherree Gorman or Julie Doane or read our volunteer guide!

Church of the Resurrection locations partner with eight local elementary schools (including Wendell Phillips Elementary) to help improve lifelong outcomes for students. You can find a full description of opportunities at all of the schools and steps to get involved on our Tutors and Classroom Buddies page.
