Teen Challenge Center: Davie Women’s Center
Brief Testimony: I was working in the bar business and realized at 26 I was heading for trouble. I was blacking out every time I drank. Someone told me I would like this church, so I went and I did and was born again. A friend of mine started working at TC and I went to visit her and the Director offered me a job, so I went through the program as a staff, so to say. God dealt with me about the same things He was dealing with the students about.
What do you enjoy most about your role? I love seeing the captives get set free and watching God do it anyway He wants-can’t put God in a box that’s for sure!
Why do you feel that leadership and training are valuable? When I started, it was on the job training by the Holy Spirit-I never cried so much in my life! God was merciful and used me in spite of me still being crippled in many ways. I feel that Teen Challenge training is putting out a much better quality of staff and they are healthier physically, mentally, emotionally, and better prepared spiritually for the battle. Those that stick with it turn out to be “quality”.
