St. Joe Stixx Drumline
Our drumline is a dedicated group of young budding musicians who practice twice a week, every Tuesday and Thursday from 5-6 pm. During these practice sessions, we work on perfecting our rhythms and beats, ensuring that we are in sync and playing with precision. Whether we are preparing for a performance or simply honing our skills, we always bring our best to these Tuesday and Thursday practices. So if you’re interested in joining our drumline, come check us out and see what we’re all about!

Meet MCE's CEO
After receiving a Psychology Bachelor’s degree (MWSU), and a Master’s in Education and Certification in Grant Writing (NWMSU), Ms. Warren and her spouse founded the MidCity Excellence Community Learning Center in 2001. It is a 501©3 non-profit mission on the former the historic campus of St. Peter-St. Paul cathedral, school campus, convent, and the Gov. Willard Hall Mansion all located on 20th & Messanie. While this 54-block inner city neighborhood has often been called a “slum and blighted area”, Kimberly and Pastor Warren see the possibilities as an endless “gold mine” and often say something “good comes from the ‘hood”! Mrs. Warren was instrumental in securing the 4 historic properties in which the center resides and clearing the mortgage in full within the first 13 months of business and ministry.

Educational & Career
Connecting with our maker, under-standing our mission and building rela-tionships with mentors is an inspiring MCE strategy to self-discovery of one’s gifts and purpose.
MCE uses the Multiple Intelligences teaching model to lead children into the discovery and understanding of how they were designed by their mak-er to contribute amazing things; to en-hance their self-worth, and to use their gifts to better their family, community, and world. Youth need to feel valued and obtain a sense of belonging as they fulfil their destiny. Some of the gifted areas are listed in the graphic.
