About the Book
The ''''Goliath'''' of urban poverty overpowers too many kids today as they struggle to survive and thrive. Detroit native and longtime advocate for youth education Mike Tenbusch knows this firsthand. But when Christians and churches come alongside these young ''''Davids,'''' we can unleash the Jonathan Effect that will turn the tide in the battle against poverty.
About the Author
Mike Tenbusch is the CEO of Uncommon Solutions, LLC, a consulting firm helping urban schools, churches, and impact organizations create strategies to improve conditions and outcomes for kids. Born and raised in Detroit, he has had a life-long calling to make Detroit a better place to be a kid and to raise a family, and he served as chief impact officer for United Way in Southeastern Michigan as part of his twenty years of leading change in the city. A graduate of the University of Michigan Law School, Mike co-founded Think Detroit (now Detroit PAL), an organization that now serves 14,000 children each year. He also served on the Board for Detroit Public Schools, helped a charter school district graduate more than ninety percent of its first high school class, and created a plan and led the effort to turnaround the city's most challenged high schools. Named one of Crain's 40 under 40 in 2008, he launched a training center for young people in partnership with best-selling author, Mitch Albom. He and his wife, Maritza, live with their three children outside Ann Arbor, Michigan.
