Brook Hills has had the great privilege of developing a partnership with Oliver Elementary School in Gate City over the past few years, a partnership known as “Love Oliver.”
Oliver serves the families of the Gate City area, including those living in the Marks Village Housing Community. The majority of the 450 students at Oliver come from low-income families. Brook Hills partners with multiple ministries investing in these children and in this area of our city including Oak Tree Ministries, Aspire Movement, Discovery Clubs, and Serving You Ministries.
Despite the many barriers these students, families, and staff may face, they have limitless God-given potential to transform their community. Through Love Oliver, we have the opportunity to link arms across racial and economic lines to fight against injustice and strongholds of the enemy together through the power of the gospel.
This is how we Love Oliver. How will you Love Oliver?
