Shared Ministry provides computers to the families of students attending Imani Christian Academy.
Tuesday May 22, 5:45 pm ET

CRANBERRY TWP. —  May 22, 2007— The shared ministry effort of Simply Christian, New Community Church, and the North Pittsburgh Users Mac Group (NPUMG) has already delivered 70 G3 iMac computers to the familes of students attending the Imani Christian Academy during the Spring semester.  There are plans underway to possibly expand the program in the Fall to include G4 Macintoshes.

"I can tell you that the students are so appreciative of this opportunity and the list of students who wish to purchase a computer continues to grow daily!", says Joyce Tompkins, Assistant to the Headmaster Elder Milton E. Raiford. 

During a tour of the school, this past Winter, the idea of helping students obtain their first computer so they may be able to continue, at home, what they have been learning during the day at school.  The ministry raised the donations needed, refurbished many of the computers, provided educational software and Microsoft Office® with each computer, and delivered the computers to families of Imani students.  The families purchase the computers for $25.

"The goal to provide computers to as many families as possible before the school year ended was made possible only through His grace and support of Christians having a heart for children and a heart for Imani Christian Academy.  Just as David’s Mighty Men 'worked together and shared many victories'.  The Imani Family Computer Ministry is possible only because of the folks who have teamed up to work together.  And it is together that we can meet this need and grow His kingdom.", says Ken Ferrans of Simply Christian





"Where purpose in the life of each child is Revealed, Refined, and Released"
