Fort Worth Church Unveils First Faith-Based GO Center in Texas

A new GO Center, aimed at helping Fort Worth ISD high school students and their families prepare for college, debuted on Wednesday, January 23rd. The center is located in the Stop Six Church of Christ on East Berry Street.

GO Centers are part of the College for Texans initiative, which endeavors to increase the overall Texas higher education participation rate. It is also a key component in the FWISD high school completion strategy. The Stop Six GO Center is the first of its kind in the state to be located in a church. The Center provides computer access to scholarship and financial aid information, mock SAT tests, career exploration, and application assistance to high school students and their parents.

On hand to launch the program were a host of church, community, and business leaders, as Pastor Joe D. Gibbs proudly unveiled the new computer resource facility.
