PERSONAL STORY:
I was raised in a good home environment and asked Christ into my life at a young age. But as I got older, I chose to do things my way, instead of serving God as I had all my childhood. I was living for myself, and my choices kept me from having success, including challenges in football. In 1978, I was reacquainted with a cousin who I could see had the peace in his life that I was missing. Through his influence, I dedicated myself to a close walk with God. Things aren’t always great now, but when problems come, I know that God is faithful to give me the strength I need.

“What is the sense in having knowledge if you’re not going to use it.”

To Inspire, Encourage and Empower Todays Youth

Students often lack self esteem and face tremendous peer pressure which may cause them to choose drugs, alcohol or even suicide. We work to see students experience:

  • Place (To belong and be accepted)
  • Purpose (Who am I, why am I here, where am I going)
  • Pain relief (Healing from hurts: physically, emotionally, socially and stop self-medicating)
  • Peace (Anxiety, worry, confusion)
  • Passion (Building confidence as I move forward in life)
