Tarnace Watkins, Sr., director of economic development of the Grove Park Foundation and executive pastor at Paradise Missionary Baptist Church, will lead the devotional.
The Grove Park Foundation is one of five non-profits selected to be the inaugural beneficiaries of the Beloved Benefit, a fundraiser that will take place on March 21st, 2019 to raise visibility for and celebrate outstanding work underway to revitalize the historic Westside of Atlanta. Over the next few weeks leading up to the Beloved Benefit, we will be shining a spotlight on these community partners and their work to support Historic Westside neighborhoods.

About the Transform Westside Summit: Westside Future Fund’s Transform Westside Summit is held on the 1st and 3rd Friday of each month and is free and open to the public. Our audience includes a diverse group of stakeholders. Longtime neighborhood residents, community and faith leaders, heads of non-profits and corporate executives come together to share success stories and discuss challenges that currently affect our Westside neighborhoods.
Meetings begin promptly at 7:15 a.m. with morning devotion,* presented by a member of the historic Westside community, and complimentary breakfast, provided by Summit sponsor Chick-fil-A.
Many in our community are driven by their spiritual faith to participate in the Westside revitalization effort. The time at the beginning of our meetings is an opportunity to share various inspirational reflections. While the speakers may articulate their personal faith, it is meant to be inclusive, inspiring and meaningful. All are welcome.
