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.
Hello! My name is Haley Lonadier. I’m 30 years old from Haynesville, La. I am a Staff member at Mt. Grace Teen Challenge for Women in Winnfield, La. I’ve now been in ELP for a little over a year and 5 months. I absolutely love it! ELP texts and studies have been very beneficial to my ministry as an emerging leader. The books for each course have been just what I needed at the right time. Being involved in the ELP course and working in Teen Challenge has helped me apply motivational skills and guided me to dig deep to find and use my God-given gifts. Also, this program has provided information that encourages me to set goals for success in my life and ministry. I have absolutely changed my direction to further my Biblical studies and personal life applications. Here at Teen Challenge through ELP, my abilities to perform in ministry are growing and escalating. This program definitely requires endurance from each individual participating in it, which has helped me in other areas of ministry. ELP has impacted my life tremendously! I surely recommend this program to anyone wanting to make a difference…Thank you!
