Project Transformation New Chapter Letter of Intent Instructions Thank you for your interest in starting a new chapter of Project Transformation! Launching a new Project Transformation program is an exciting and challenging endeavor. We are very interested in expanding this ministry in a sustainable way to reach our mission of engaging young adults in purposeful leadership and ministry, supporting underserved children and families, and connecting church to communities in need. Our vision is for Project Transformation to be a respected national model through which leaders emerge, communities change, and lives transform. It is our intention to develop a network of Project Transformation chapters throughout the country by partnering with conferences of the United Methodist Church. Each chapter will enter into a broad Trademark Agreement with Project Transformation and will share the same mission statement and core program components, but will have separate legal status, staff, and board leadership with the oversight and assistance of a planned national staff and Board of Directors. The first step toward starting a new chapter is to submit an initial Letter of Intent that includes the following: A list of the preliminary Core Leadership Team, which could include a combination of conference staff, clergy, lay leaders, business and community leaders and community members. One person must be designated as the primary contact and ‘Lead Champion.’ A description of the support from the local United Methodist Conference including the primary contact who will sign a Letter of Intent on behalf of the Conference. A list of potential community housing options (We recommend a partnership with a United Methodist-affiliated college or university, if available.) A list of potential site churches including basic demographic data on the community immediately surrounding the church. A conference map The Letter of Intent should be signed by the Lead Champion and a representative from the local United Methodist Conference, and submitted to Project Transformation, ATTN: Eric Lindh, 547 E. Jefferson Blvd., Dallas, TX 75203. Project Transformation’s Board will review the Letter of Intent and notify the applicant of our decision to partner with the Core Leadership Team in the development of a new Project Transformation chapter.
