About The Power Company Kids Club
Many of the Detroit and Pontiac families that PCKC serves are forced to make difficult decisions just to survive. They help disadvantaged children rise above their circumstances, with free access to the tools, resources, and tough love it takes to become bright, extraordinary men and women who give back to their community.
In March 1993, Pastor John Gunn opened The Power Company Kids Club in Pontiac, Michigan with 23 kids. Today, their programs are run by amazing young men and women who grew up in the Power Company over the past 30 years! They oversee a volunteer army reaching more than 1,600 children each week in Detroit and Pontiac.
The Motor City put the world on wheels, but changing times left many residents struggling for survival. Despite much progress, Detroit is still overrun with burned-out houses, vacant buildings, and abandoned schools. Where they focus their ministry, 94-percent of children live below the poverty line. Pontiac faces similar challenges, with 49-percent of kids below the poverty line. They feel called to serve these cities with such rich histories — to give hope and a future to urban youth.
Their mission has always been to guide inner city youth toward healthy, successful, sustainable independence. How? By helping at-risk kids discover and develop their own strengths and talents. Because they focus on “building champions,” thousands of marginalized families are seeing their kids graduate from high school, attend college, and become godly leaders. It takes years of weekly training and in-home visits, but it’s worth it to impact countless generations to come.

* Please help PCKC with an ongoing need by bringing bags of individually wrapped candy and/or juice boxes/pouches when you come to the event.
In honor of the meaningful impact that Sharon Kimble had on the ACG Detroit community for over 20 years, our annual holiday charity event that meant so much to her, is known as "Kimble Bells."
