Madison Street serves as the anchor partner church for the Clarksville area site of Project Transformation Tennessee (housed at New Providence UMC).
Based on a model founded in 1998 in Dallas, Texas, Project Transformation Tennessee launched in 2012 to address three unique challenges with one program: 1) how to meet the academic, physical, social-emotional, and spiritual needs of children; 2) how to provide meaningful ways for college-age young adults to explore ministry opportunities and develop as young leaders for the church and the world; and 3) how to help churches connect with their communities.
Project Transformation’s collaborative model of ministry harnesses the creative energy and leadership of young adults, who live in intentional Christian community and lead summer and afterschool programs for children. Each week, these young adult interns meet with church and nonprofit leaders to explore various ministry-related vocations and spend time discerning their vocational call to life-long service. Programs are held at churches located in neighborhoods experiencing marginalization, thereby helping those churches connect in meaningful ways with their communities. Dozens of other churches and organizations throughout Tennessee partner together to support this work, investing in young lives with their time and resources.
Each summer, volunteers from Madison Street are needed to:
- Serve as a reading buddy for children in the summer program
- Serve in-person weekly at the host church as a hospitality volunteer or "Reading Rockstar"
- Donate supplies, books, and snacks
Check back here at the beginning of each summer to register for these specific opportunities.
