I am Kristi LaCoy and I work for Teen Challenge. I’m the Intake Coordinator @ “The Bridge” Teen Challenge for Women located in Franklin, LA. I have been a part of ELP for about a year and will graduate soon. ELP has taught me so much about working in ministry and as a team. When I started, I didn’t realize how important I was to what is involved in this work. This course has taught me answers to questions I didn’t even know I needed to ask and to serve the way Jesus did.
Hi, my name is Courtney Hooper, I’m from Houston, Texas and I’m currently attending the Columbus Girls Academy in Seale, AL. Since coming here, God has brought me out of my life of darkness and emptiness. He’s given me such an overflow of His unending, perfect love and grace and I only desire to give Him my everything in return. God has definitely called me to ministry in Teen Challenge after I graduate, and although I’m not sure what that life will look like, I’m trusting Him to lead and guide me as He already has been. ELP has grown and challenged me in ways that have completely transformed my ideas on leadership. It’s shown me what an authentic leader looks like, and has given me the ability to walk more steadily in following Christ’s example, who proclaimed that a true leader is one that gives away their life for others.
