20th Celebration

 

We are 20!

“To God Be the Glory Great Things He Has Done!” What a joyous time of celebrating 20 years of God doing an amazing work using the ministries of the Neighborhood Christian Center to serve those who are hurting and in need of a Savior’s love.  Those attending the Celebration had an opportunity to walk through a 20 year timeline of pictures, newsletters, and hear videos from former directors, founders, volunteers and the current directors.  Ashley Gabbard, a recent graduate from the Neighborhood Christian Center’s Transitional Home shared her journey of transformation through Christ shown to her through classes she attended in and outside of jail, mentors, programs, her church and work family.  Deterrian “DT” Shackelford who has been impacted by the Neighborhood Christian Center for almost 20 years was the guest speaker.  He spoke on “selfless service.”  DT encouraged us all to remember that Christ served by washing the feet of others who had nothing to give back.  Both Ashley and DT’s stories reminded us of how important relationships with one another make eternal impacts that we may never realize are taking place.  We are grateful beyond words that God has chosen to use the Center, its staff and Board of  Directors, volunteers, prayer warriors and supporters to be the hands and feet of Christ to those we serve.  We are thankful for your faithful support and partnership in this ministry.  May we be found faithful always with great anticipation as God allows us to be part of His Great Work in reaching those in need.
