Name: Elissa Hollingsworth
Age: 41 years young
Hometown: Starke, Florida
Teen Challenge Center: I graduated from the South Florida Davie Women’s Center in 2013 and now have been on staff with them for 2 years.
My Testimony in Brief: I grew up in an abusive alcoholic family causing me at a young age to seek out purpose in life through the wrong crowds. This landed me in and out of jail and prison for over 21 years.
The Purpose and Calling God has Given Me: After coming to Teen Challenge I met Jesus and I have finally found my purpose in life and that is to give hope to others the same way it was given to me when I walked through these doors.
The ELP’s Impact on My Leadership: The impact that the ELP program has had on my life is that it is helping me to change on a continuous basis to become more like Christ and to be a messenger of hope!
