Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., exemplified the true testament of a public servant -- leading and guiding the nation to dream of a better community. In honor of his lifelong dedication to justice, equality, and service for the greater good, the Lincoln Recreation Center presents the annual Dream Works Conference on Saturday, Jan. 13 from 11 a.m.-8:30 p.m. This year’s theme is “Be Transformed by the Renewing of your Mind -- Rebuild and Restore!”

The conference kicks off with the Keeping the Dream Alive Award Luncheon to celebrate and honor community members who have spent countless hours serving others. The afternoon schedule is filled with breakout sessions featuring engaging and powerful presentations that focus on character, leadership and personal development. Dr. Terrance D. Grant-Malone, pastor of Houston’s Historic St. John Missionary Baptist Church, will be the keynote speaker. The conference concludes with an evening of praise and worship led by the Brazos Valley Community Choir.

Admission is free and lunch is $5 per plate. Pre-register online before Jan. 10. The first 50 registrants will receive a free conference shirt. On-site registration will also be accepted.
