Kids and Parents Want In to our Read2Succeed Program!

July 26, 2015

2014-read-to-succeed-100x11It’s not “Fried” words, but Fry Words that our elementary students are given an extra serving of at Read2Succeed (R2S)!  Last year, at R2S we paired 22 students (ages 2nd-5th grade) with 22 coaches. The student-coach team read together once a week for 9 months. They focused on reading fluency with Fry Words, comprehension & read Bible lessons. The results showed that 95% of our students gained 200 words or more from their baseline at the beginning of the school year!!! 70% of all students gained 400 words or more to levels above their grade level!

If it seems like Fry Words are a big deal, it’s because if a student doesn’t recognize these foundational words on sight they are unable to read at their full potential. According to The National Institute for Literacy, “Having a bank of sight words releases a reader’s attention needed for comprehension and for figuring out more difficult and less frequent words.”

At R2S, we have seen evidence of improved reading comprehension, with 57% of students achieving reading comprehension accuracy ranging from 81-100% at their grade level.

Of course, we aren’t so focused on reading that we don’t have time for a little fun. Building relationships is just as important! It’s so important that most of our students remain in R2S all four years and many of our coaches have been volunteering for 10-13 years. Together we pray, celebrate birthdays, visit Hope church, attend monthly field trips, annual swimming parties and this year, we’ll participate together in service projects. Growing in mind, body & soul WITH each other.

If you have time Mondays, Tuesdays or Wednesdays from 4:30-6:00pm and want to be an important part of a child’s educational, spiritual, and emotional development, prayerfully consider becoming a Read2Succeed coach.

If you’d like more information about Read2Succeed, please contact Kathleen. If you are interested in any of our other programs, please check out our website, like us on Facebook, or follow us on Twitter or Instagram (@oasisofhope).

School Supply Drive Lists are Out! Adopt a Student Today!

July 04, 2015

Backpack Drive:back-to-school-drive-100x11

We know the thought of heading back to school conjures up a lot of emotions; there is excitement, anxiety, tighter schedules, and the fun of reuniting with classmates and friends. However, in the inner city, it often also means financial concern about being able to even afford one new uniform, or finding money to purchase a backpack or notepaper. If surprising a child with a backpack full of beautiful, new, school supplies sounds like a fun way to bless a student, we can connect your gift with kids who really need it!

This is your chance to shop for a cause! While you’re out buying school supplies for your own children, consider picking up a few more items to be passed on to less fortunate students from one of our many partnering inner city schools (KIPP Middle & Elementary, Caldwell-Guthrie Elementary, and Humes Middle) who have helped us formulate the school supply lists (below) for various age groups.  It takes a little effort but makes a big impact!

Backpacks of supplies can be dropped off at Hope Presbyterian Church from now until the end of July; look for the bins/carts that say ‘Backpack Drive.’

If you would like us to do the shopping for you, you can donate online or make checks payable to Hope Church and write ‘Backpack Drive’ in the memo.

Uniform Drive:

We often know kids who have one uniform to wear at school, as well as throughout the summer. We’d love to send these kids to school dressed in NEW uniforms!  This year, our neighborhood schools have asked for help in stocking their depleted school clothing closets, so that students are able to get items that they don’t have. Your monetary donation (donate online) will enable us to “shop in bulk” to help out these students and the school clothing closets.

If you would like more information regarding this ministry, contact Di. Stay up-to-date by liking us on Facebook, following us on Twitter and Instagram (@oasisofhope) , and checking our website for pictures, videos and current information.

We Saw a Miracle Happen in the Form of a God-Given Van!

July 03, 2015

If you have ever helped Oasis with our youth, a service project, a senior citizen outing, a leadership event, attended Urban Plunge, or nearly anything and everything we do at Oasis, then you have probably ridden in or driven one of our old red vans!

2015-6-new-van-web500-2Just this week the Lord has stepped in a provided for a HUGE ministry need we have had for years! For more than a decade, Oasis of Hope has been limping along with a broken down, falling apart, requiring frequent repairs, somewhat unsafe, old red van. It has stranded staff and youth in various places of the city at some of the most precarious times of day.

Forever we have longed for a better ride, but vans are expensive! For a while we had a second old red van that helped when this one was unreliable. However, a couple of years ago the backup van bit the dust and we were once again left with our still limping, still unreliable ‘main’ van. Our staff has begged to try to find the money for a new van after being stranded time and time again…but our budget is always tight and we always seem to have 50 more important financial needs in front of this one.

Then … a couple months ago the main van died a final death, never to rise again. This hit at a tight financial time for the ministry and we were not able to purchase a replacement. Staff and volunteers temporarily scrambled to get students and seniors where they needed to go by using their own vehicles (no easy task when transporting 20 youth or 40 senior citizens!).

So, we started to spread the word, asking people to pray for a solution, and to see if anyone knew of a good, used van for sale. WREG News Channel 3 read a tweet we posted and did a story (watch the clip) on our van woes! Following this TV exposure, we received a call from a couple that had seen the report and said they had the perfect van for us and were willing to sell it for a very reasonable price! We looked at it and drooled over it, but they were unable to donate it and we were unable to afford it even at their more-than-fair price tag.

2015-6-new-van-tweet-web500Then a few days later, it came to our attention that there was money ‘leftover’ in one of our grants that HAD to be spent by June 30 or forfeited! Now people … this has NEVER happened before!! We ALWAYS use every penny! So we inquired if we could use some of this ‘extra’ amount toward the purchase of a new van even though this was not in our original proposal for the grant. The answer came back that we could!

WE WERE JUST GIVEN A NEW VAN YA’ALL!!!

We believe God cleared the way for the approval of this vital expenditure and granted us favor to get it. We are now proud owners of an almost new 14 passenger van (more like a mini bus!) with great room for youth and equipment, as well as, easier access for our wonderful senior citizens!

Thank you to those of you who have asked about this need, prayed with us, and have even been willing to donate towards it. The grant paid for the majority of the expense and we were able to find budget for the remainder. Just praise God with us and hope that it will provide for our transportation needs for years to come and allow ministry to keep happening.

Those old red vans were surely FILLED with memories and in a way, will be missed. However, NONE of us will miss the breakdowns, the stalling engines, the jumps needed, the torn interior fabric, the cassette players, or the fires (ha!)! We will savor this new gift and will gladly, respectfully ‘beat it up’ too by promising to fill it with inner city kids, with parents, with seniors, and with ministry volunteers until it too dies a fulfilling death!!

WE ARE SO GRATEFUL!!

Bible Camp is Over-Real Life is Back! Prayers Still Needed!

July 02, 2015

2015-KAA-web500Summer Bible Camp – Kids Across America (KAA) 2015
-By Jasmine Martin, Oasis of Hope Middle School Youth Developer

  • The week of June 7th-13th, 35 Oasis of Hope youth and staff attended a week long camp at Kids Across America outside Branson, MO. 14 campers ages 9-12; 7 campers ages 13-14; 9 campers ages 15-18; 5 adult staffers attended.

For seven days the campers attended daily Bible study, church services, & Christian faith building sessions. They found that Christians not only have fun, but have the MOST fun!! Each night they danced to Christian Hip Hop & during the day scaled tree top obstacle courses, played putt-putt, went tubing, shot archery, made art, played sports like basketball, baseball, & swimming, climbed treetops, zip lined, & had endless fun!! The excitement of fun & friends was just part of the experience. Impacting their lives for Christ is where the reward was truly found.

Although camp is so much fun, it is also so much more. KAA is such holy ground, it truly is a “mountain top” experience. We all were able to experience God more deeply and see how we can honor God in everything they do.

Cross Talk:
The most important event at camp is Cross Talk night; Cross Talk is when the counselors do a reenactment of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. This is the most powerful night at camp and the presence of God is definitely felt during this time. This is a highlight for us, because it is the night some of our children accepted Christ into their lives.

This year at KAA three of our students accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior!

One of the students who accepted Christ said she felt as if a dark cloud had been removed from over her life; her heart has been transformed. This transformation is what it’s all about!

We do what we do as staff at Oasis for the moment when a person turns their life over to God and allows him to take control. Building up leaders for the kingdom of God is our ultimate purpose and KAA is just a resource that helps catapult the transformation in the lives of all who attend.

My request to all those reading this article is that you may continue to pray with us for all the kids who attended KAA. It’s easy to do the right thing when you are around the right people, but things get a little more difficult when your surroundings change. Please pray that these children will cling to the word of God and hold on to His unchanging hand in the midst of the difficulties in their lives.

“Dear friends, let us continue to love one another, for love comes from God. Anyone who loves is a child of God and knows God. But anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love. God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him. This is real love – not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.”

– 1 John 4:7-10

Summer Leadership Academy; A Ministry From the Heart

July 02, 2015

2015-martell-web800As a teen, I craved attention. I wanted to know that my life had significance. Yet, the message I received from the world around me said that I was at best a nuisance. I remember dreaming of doing something significant, but never really thinking it was possible. All that changed when I experienced leadership training from a childhood mentor one summer. I felt I was able to achieve anything after that summer experience.

Summer Leadership Academy (SLA) is a program inspired by my own story. The development I received as a teen must be given to a new generation of student leaders. Some of our youth experienced similar dream crushing upbringings. SLA is designed to encourage hope for the future and to give confidence building exposure through role models and opportunities. Much of SLA is based off of the Great Commandment to “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments” (Matt 22:37-40).  Our passion for the Great Commandment has lead us to focus on the foundational values, 1) spiritual formation, 2) servanthood/acts of love, and 3) love for neighbors/strangers.

With these core values in place, the goal for SLA is to provide cultural exposure, leadership development and service opportunities for students in order to promote longevity and sustainability in Oasis of Hope’s youth development processes:

  • Cultural Exposure – We are providing strategic opportunities to enlarge the worldview and perspective of our student leaders. We want to help our youth see what’s possible when motivated by love and faith. For example, youth will attend a diversity training at Bridges as well as experience racial & economic diversity by attending St. Jude, Slavehaven, art shows and cross cultural service projects.
  • Leadership Development – We seek to provide spiritual, character and vocational training to enlarge the understanding and competencies of our youth. We want to help our student leaders become more functional in their faith.  For example, our business professional mentors are teaching the students many of the business essentials to succeed in the workforce.
  • Service Opportunities – Our students are experiencing the workplace in an on-the-job setting serving as interns at Chick-fil-A and Oasis Appliance. In addition, many served as volunteer leaders at our Summer VBS program and other outreaches designed to stretch their leadership muscles and grow in this essential aspect of their lives.

2015-summer-leadership-acadThe six week curriculum is based around:

  • Love for God (acknowledging the creator)
  • Love for Self (knowing one’s value)
  • Love for Others (engaging community)
  • Acts of Love (the importance of service)
  • Love for the City (stewardship)
  • Social justice and Community Development (equity for all)

One of our teens involved in SLA told me that it’s time for them to give back to their own community. She was so encouraged by her leadership training that she couldn’t wait to find a way to invest in others. The teens are learning the power of Gospel to give them purpose and confidence. Every lesson learned and every time they serve, our student leaders grow in many unanticipated ways. One student even told me that he wanted my job. It was then that I knew our leadership training was working.

“And what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses, entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.” – 2 Timothy 2:2

Summer Baseball Teaches So Much More Than the Game

July 01, 2015

oasis-summer-baseball-100x1We are currently looking for volunteers and sponsors to invest in our youth in North Memphis through our summer baseball program.

We are thrilled to again partner with the Red Birds RBI league! They are returning to our community and with our Parks and Little League World Series Teams, we anticipate having 7 teams this summer! Pray for us!

Kids from the neighborhood, ages 4-16, are invited to participate Monday-Friday from 9a-12p for no fee in Oasis’ Summer Baseball program. They are divided into teeball, coach pitch, and kid’s pitch categories to teach appropriate skills and provide needed encouragement.

But we all know we’re not doing this just for the love of the game.

So much more is at work here: We want kids to bond with coaches and volunteers, develop meaningful relationships, provide healthy activities, get kids moving, bring a variety of ages together, offer healthy food, and even more.

Last year our teams won almost all of their games, but even if the scoreboard never shows a win, this ministry is a home-run!

WHO: Kids ages 4-16 or volunteers of any age
WHEN: M-F from 9a-1p – Time To Be Confirmed
WHERE: Bickford Community Center Ball Field and Manassas HS fields

Watch the website if you would like to come to a game!

Church Plant Update: Welcome Pastor Colley and Family!

June 30, 2015

colley-cooper-175x175Watch the video.

5/9/2015 Update: Hope has chosen Pastor Colley Cooper and his family (wife Sheri, and sons, Kofi and Cohen) as the new Pastor! Colley, a native of Memphis, has extensive experience working with disenfranchised persons and especially youth. He is a visionary desiring to motivate others to do common things in an uncommon way.

The next steps will be for him to begin building relationships in the neighborhood and getting to know families, businesses and staff. In the future, at least a year from now, they will begin solidifying a church building. We are thrilled to see this step completed and this exciting process moving forward!

bearwater-construction-julyWe at Oasis are very excited to announce a new outreach of our parent church, Hope Presbyterian, that has the potential to be used of the Lord to radically impact the lives of people in our community at a much deeper level. From our perspective, Oasis does a good job at touching lives, sharing the gospel and meeting practical/tangible needs of people in our area of North Memphis.

However, we are painfully aware of the need for deeper discipleship in the lives of our families that is best accomplished through a community church. Hope’s leadership has a passion to make a significant spiritual impact in the lives of the families we know, and many we haven’t met yet.  After 13 years of investment, the time seems right for the Lord to work in a new way in our neighborhood.  We are so thankful for Pastors Rufus, Craig and Eli for their support all these years and for their commitment to bringing real transformation to our neighborhood. Check out Pastor Eli’s sermon addressing this issue from 11/16/2014.

We’d love to surround this movement in prayer. Will you join us in praying for the following:

1. A full-time lead pastor and a bi-vocational assistant pastor or music leader
2. A strategic building in which to gather for worship and an outpost for service
3. 10-12 person church development planning team as well as other Hope Church volunteers
4. Continued favor from residents, businesses, schools, other pastors and stakeholders
5. That many will become Jesus-followers and that God’s name would be glorified/praised
6. Protection from evil and the evil one
7. Future indigenous neighborhood leaders

Please join us in support of this life-changing effort to engage the unchurched neighbors in our community to experience Jesus in a dramatically deeper way.  If you would like to support the church financially please designate “Urban Church Investment” in the memo, and you can either donate online, or write checks to Hope Church, and mail to 8500 Walnut Grove Rd, Cordova TN 38018.

Don’t give glory to us, O Lord. Don’t give glory to us. Instead, give glory to your name because of your mercy and faithfulness. –Psalm 115:1 (GW)

Mentors, Mentees, and Neighbors Doing Life Together

June 16, 2015

2015-ben-and-jessica100x116Ben and Jessica are just volunteers from Christ City Church with a passion for North Memphis and two VERY BIG hearts.

A few years ago they got involved with the Oasis Bike Shop ministry and since then have made it their mission to connect inner city kids from Oasis of Hope with volunteers ever since. Recently, they have been holding a bi-weekly potluck to encourage fellowship together between our middle school Life Builders kids and mentors, as well as Bike Shop volunteers and the kids they mentor as well. Anyone who is interested in becoming a mentor is welcome to join in on the fun:

We would love other folks from Oasis or from Hope join us if they are ready to love and engage these kids.  We have been praying for more folks; we could love them more effectively if we love them together.

WHO: You … just bring a dish … but contact me (Jessica) to make sure we are still on schedule
WHAT: Mentors/Mentees/Neighbors doing life together
WHEN: We meet the 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month at 1pm-ish
WHERE: 225 Angelus Street, please RSVP to Jessica
WHY: Our purpose is to “follow Jesus in a genuine, mutually transforming love of our neighbors.” (Sherman Restorers of Hope) The potlucks on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month have given us another opportunity to develop deeper life-on-life relationships.  The young people have opened up, asked profound questions, and shared a part of their stories and personalities that we hadn’t known before.  Folks from Oasis ministries and from our church and neighborhood have gathered to share love and time and support to the youth and it’s been wonderful.  We’d love to have more folks join in. The kids need all the love they can get. Contact Jessica@oasisbikeshop.com for details.

Volunteer at the Bike Shop…or Donate a Bike, Parts or Funds

June 14, 2015

oasis-bike-shop-collage-500Oasis Bike Shop seeks to empower our neighbors by creating a fun and safe community space to help with bicycle repair, instruction on bicycle repair, and bicycle safety

Donate Your Used Bike/Bike Parts
Your bike donation equals mentoring time, teaching bike repair, lessons in working hard to earn something, healthy living, & the invitation to attend group bike outings! Tax donation receipts are available for your donations. Funds to run the Bike Shop come from private donations and the sales of bikes. We include bike locks and helmets with every bike. We accept drop-offs at any of our Oasis offices or at Hope Presbyterian Church, or we can schedule to pick up your donation from you. Contact Jessica to schedule a pick-up time.

Work in Our Store to Clean and Repair Used Bikes
Volunteers are needed to work Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10a-2p, and Wednesdays from 4-6p.
Mechanics Training is available but hours vary
Help us fix up bikes and at the same time teach a youth the trade!

Join us for Group Bike Rides
Casual riders and bike enthusiasts are all invited to join us; The more the merrier!
Let us know if you’d like to come on our next ride.

Shop at our Store
Part of our funding comes from bike sales!
We depend on consistent sales to stay in business so stop on by and buy yourself a bike!

Oasis Bike Shop is in need of more volunteers! This growing ministry is now offering the following opportunities to get involved:

Tuesdays 10a-2p Open Shop
Wednesdays 4-6p After-School Bike Program (during the school year)
Thursdays 10a-2p Open Shop
Mechanics Training – Hours vary

Come be a part of the good things happening here! We need more safety instructors, mentors, and mechanics. Instructors and mechanics both require training. Mentors are interviewed prior to start. Contact Jessica to get involved!

Recently, the Oasis Bike Shop had seven young men from the inner city currently work through the Apprentice Mechanics Program where they were trained in bicycle repair, safety and mechanics … all skills that may come in handy for either their personal health, or a possible career path someday.

In addition to learning the how-to mechanics of bike repair, local youth can also get involved in the Oasis Bike Shop Earn-a-Bike program by volunteering, learning, and helping out in the Bike Shop with the end result of earning and selecting their very own bike. While logging their 24 hours, they are learning how to run a small business, being taught how to fix, revive and recycle used bikes, and perhaps most importantly, they are being mentored by a caring adult who is interested in investing in not only their physical health, but also their emotional and spiritual well-being.

Group events are frequently planned to further bonding and to demonstrate what healthy living looks like. Thanks to the exciting growth in Memphis regarding the Greenline and the Hampline, there is a lot of buzz in the biking industry, and specifically in North Memphis.

Additionally, the Bike Shop is partnering with Memphis Leadership Foundation and Community Bikes to help empower the neighborhood biking community through education, safety and training. By working together, we hope to offer more services and to create a buzz about this healthy and fun activity and to make our shop a sustainable ministry that the North Memphis biking community is proud to call their own.

Currently we are open two days a week, but hope to expand our hours in the future. If you would like more information regarding this growing ministry, like us on Facebook, or check out the Oasis Bike Shop webpage, or if you would like to get involved, please contact us!
