Who Are We?

The impact that Hall of Fame basketball coach, Guy V. Lewis had on the young people he worked with is the inspiration for the Guy V. Lewis Impact Initiative. Birthed out of Kingdom Global Transformation Network, the concept came from a desire to positively impact, strengthen, and unify communities, physically, spiritually, and emotionally. We will work synergistically with established programs, ministries, and businesses in the community who share our vision and mission.

Impact Centers

An Impact Center is a unique community center, in that it is a synergistic building. There are headquarters for the outreach services, job help, feeding programs, after school and at-risk youth programs, services for seniors, and more.

There is a Christian school for  kindergarten through 12th grades, specially designed to impact the children holistically through education, nutrition, nature, and all the senses. This school integrates all learning styles with a cutting edge approach.

A basketball program, in honor of Guy Lewis’ legacy, is going to be for both after-school fun, and a serious competitive team. A state of the art basketball court will also host annual basketball camps.

Why We Do This

Terry and Deborah, founders of The Guy V. Lewis Impact Initiative, raised a beautiful child who struggled with a processing disorder. Though he was brilliant, their son had many challenges that made homeschooling the best option for their son. They had little support, and resources were difficult to find, so they forged through. After trying a traditional school setting twice, they returned to homeschooling. Their son is now a thriving young adult, and is about to enter college, having passed the entrance exam on the first try. 

Terry and Deborah learned through many trials and difficult situations that a learning challenged child, when given the attention, love and learning methods that work for them, can thrive and flourish in this world. Over the years, they met a number of other parents who had children with learning challenges and differing levels of autism and felt that the parents were needing the support that she had desired for her son. Most did not have the funds and resources to put their children in a 

 

private school, and most private schools, especially Christian schools, do not understand or address the special learning needs of these precious children.

As parents, Terry and Deborah used many things such as nature to capture learning moments that were also memory-making moments. Terry taught him how to build, and how relevant math was to the real world. Deborah taught him how to cook, and in the process he learned how to measure, how to create, and the self-esteem that comes with accomplishment. Life was a series of teachable moments strung together to enrich their son’s learning experiences.

Through this passion for their son, and those that they met who needed help, Terry and Deborah birthed the Guy V. Lewis Impact Initiative. The goal is to open Impact Centers in multiple cities, starting with Kyle, Texas. Through these centers that will house schools and other outreach programs to children, families, and the general population, many lives can be Impacted in so many ways through God’s love and practical help. 

 

 

About Guy V. Lewis

Basketball Hall of Fame coach Guy V. Lewis was an extraordinary man. He coached the Houston Cougars from 1956 to 1986, and became a legend. Known for his fast-paced, exciting style of basketball culminating with the wildly popular Phi Slama Jama, Guy was also an innovator. With a knack for recognizing and choosing players with great potential, he became the first coach to take college basketball into a nationally televised arena.

Guy’s legacy wasn’t limited to basketball. He mentored the young men on his teams, many of whom became prosperous, successful adults who now testify of the tremendous impact of his influence in their lives.

Our passion is to honor his legacy; to follow in his footsteps and beyond, to mentor many young people who may also become successful, prosperous adults, and to impact communities through multiple forms of outreach.
