Merry Christmas from S.L.A.M. Academy


from the S.L.A.M. Academy family to yours…

We hope you are having a wonderful Christmas season.

Exciting things have been happening at the S.L.A.M. Academy. We have been partnering with established urban ministries to minister together to the youth in Akron, Ohio.
In October we partnered with The Chapel and held an after school program for twenty one kindergarten and first grade students in an inner-city Akron Public School.

Every week we taught them that they are created and loved by God, His uniquely designed masterpiece and their life has worth and value. After our short teaching of biblical truths, our hip hop instructor, Laura Aman, (pictured below) taught them a fun routine.
It was so fun to watch these kids explore God’s truth and experience dance training that they would most likely never receive any where else.

This is just the beginning of what God is doing…

We believe that God is calling us to offer training in the arts to those less fortunate. We know that this training can bring healing, create character and offer discipline and self confidence. When we explore our creativity we learn so much about God and how He has created us. What we offer, the combination of arts training & biblical truth, is truly life changing.

Will you join us? Would you consider giving a tax-deductible, year-end gift to our ministry and make an impact in the lives of the young people in the city of Akron and the Kingdom of God?

Simply click on the “Donate” tab on the right of our home page. Your gift will help us purchase a portable ballet barre and portable mirrors. Please feel free to contact us with any questions. 

Thanks for considering to partner with us!
Take care & Merry Christmas!!

We are God’s Masterpiece


FullSizeRender (1)

Sometimes we need to be reminded that God is the Artist – we are His handiwork, fearfully and wonderfully made. He rejoices over each one of us -

Zephaniah 3:17

For the Lord your God is living among you.
    He is a mighty savior.
He will take delight in you with gladness.
    With his love, he will calm all your fears.
    He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.”   *   330.552.7126   *  email us

Leap of Faith


Leap of Faith

“Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.” – Hebrews 11:1

Some times you just need to jump and trust that you will land on solid ground! That is what we are doing at S.L.A.M. Academy. We believe God is moving us in a new direction – our heart is the same, using the Arts to impact lives and bring God glory. But it’s going to look different…

We are EXCITED but we are not ready for the big reveal, therefore we are canceling our upcoming Open House.  Please stay tuned for more information!

You can learn more about S.L.A.M. Academy by visiting our website at:   *   330.552.7126   *  email us

Pour out your heart to Him…

hands_making_a_heart_in_the_sunset-wallpaper-960x600“Pour out your heart to Him, for God is our refuge.” Psalm 62:8

“My heart has heard you say, ‘Come and talk with me.’ And my heart responds, ‘Lord, I am coming.’”  Psalm 27:8

“I trust God with all my heart. He helps me,
and my heart is filled with joy.”
Psalm 28:7

I love the intimacy found in these verses. They reveal the heart of God the Father. How He longs for us to know Him, His love, peace and joy. We can pour out our hearts to Him and find rest for our souls in His presence.

There is no god like our God who is
concerned about the heart of His children.

Our passion at S.L.A.M. Academy is for people to
connect with the heart of God.   *   330.552.7126   *  email us
