A popular Brenham summer program needs to raise $50,000 by June 5th.
The Jesus and Me (JAM) Academy is in danger of being canceled this year if they cannot raise the money within the next few weeks.
JAM Academy is a six week academic enrichment camp featuring interactive games, weekly field trips, group bible teaching, small group biblical leadership, sports, and STEP competitions. The program has been sponsored by Mission Brenham for the past 12 years.
A steering committee has been formed to address the urgent fundraising needs.
The committee has asked Champion Fellowship to provide tax exempt status, making contributions deductible for this year’s program, which runs from June 5th through July 13th.
Donations can be mailed or taken to Champion Fellowship, 1801 S. Market St., Brenham, or steering committee members. Checks should be made out to "JAM 2017".
Steering committee members include: Billy Sutherland (Pastor, Calvary Baptist Church – chair), Tim Webb (Pastor Champion Fellowship), Allen McClure (Associate Pastor, Champion Fellowship), Bill Rankin (Abiding Word Lutheran Church), Dr. Walter Jackson (BISD Superintendent of Schools), Jonathan Cortina (Programs Director, Mission Brenham), Jon Davies (Pastor, Brenham Bible Church), LaKesha Walker-Morgan (Assistant Principal Brenham High School and Mission Brenham Board Member), Debbie Forland (Children’s Director, Champion Fellowship) and Tina Roehling, (Ministry Facilitator, Champion Fellowship).
