MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

The Mind on the Mission Pastors and Leaders Ministry is leading an effort to help the students of Montgomery’s all-male school, Valiant Cross Academy.

“We’re a school who has an intentional culture of structure and discipline and a rigorous academic environment, longer school days, and just a lot of love,” Valiant Cross Academy Founder and Head of School Anthony Brock explained about his private school with a Christian emphasis. “We believe in more time on task, and also a lot of exposure opportunities for our young men. We’re worried about creating and developing the entire young man.”

Mind on the Mission is collecting water and uniform items Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Maggie Street Baptist Church in Montgomery.

“Our young men wear white shirts, khaki pants, blazers, bow ties and sweaters most days. The reason is to level the playing field in the morning where they don’t have to think about what they wear. That’s one of the distractions that we take away from our young men every day,” Brock said. “It will benefit us in a great way. A lot of our young people buy their uniforms early in the year, but throughout the year, they need more uniforms.”

Mind on the Mission will also take monetary donations. Valiant Cross Academy students wear a specific, special ordered bow tie. A $7 donation will cover the cost of one bow tie.
