Alpha Summit - February 23-25, 2012

On February 23-25, Gateway is having their huge men's conference, Alpha Summit at their Southlake Campus.
One Heart has been asked to participate with a booth in the lobby.  Between teaching sessions, the men attending the conference will be able to learn more about the One Heart Project and about how they can make a difference.

We are going to do a "Flash Mob" where young men from our community will stand with zip-tie handcuffs on their wrists representing the 110,000 youngsters who are currently incarcerated.  When a new volunteer signs up, they will be given scissors to symbolically 'release' one of these kids.


Your son (or any middle or high school aged kid) is invited to join us as one of these representatives. We need as many as middle and high school aged young men as possible.


Sunday, February 26 - Soccer Camp at
Gainesville State School

Soccer Camp Fans needed!  One Heart Project has the unique opportunity to partner with an international soccer club.  They provide the professional coaches, we provide the volunteers.  We’d love to have volunteers participate as encouragers and support during an afternoon soccer camp hosted at the Gainesville State School. No soccer skills or knowledge of the game required.  Impact the life of an incarcerated male, ages 15-18. Some of these young men never have visitors during their incarceration. Your commitment will help provide encouragement and kindness to a hurting kid.
