Change is the essence of life. If there were no change, there'd be no butterflies. Metamorphosis is like salvation; just when the caterpillar thought life was over...it became a beautiful butterfly!
2nd Chance Ministries is a street outreach for helping the hurting and loving the lost. We're an extension of God's hand for those who are less fortunate, and for the outcasts of society. We seek out the needy, the homeless, those living under the bridges, the addict, alcoholic, prostitute, and the "forgotten". We provide food, clothing, the basic necessities of life, and then some; but most of all, we show the love of Jesus to all.
I have walked a mile in the shoes of almost everyone we serve, I was an addict, an alcoholic, a prostitute, and homeless. My passion is to never give up on anyone, because Jesus never gave up on me. For the last 10 years, we have been working with human trafficked victims, in partnership with the Salvation Army and Amethyst. I speak at numerous public awareness meetings and conferences from churches, to high schools and colleges; and I developed a street outreach team to reach these victims, especially the prostitutes. I was also a volunteer at Catch Court (Prostitution Court).
I'm the vice president and organizer for the March for Freedom - Columbus event. It's goal is to raise awareness about human trafficking that occurs in Ohio and beyond. We will hold our third annual March For Freedom May 7, 2017 at 2 pm, in downtown Columbus.
I'm always looking for ways to bring the love of Christ to others. A dream was placed in my heart to deliver food and a shower to the homeless. This dream will take shape as The Love Truck, an RV which will allow me to make fresh, hot food for the hungry, and provide hot showers and a way to wash their clothes. The Love Truck will allow me to meet a multitude of needs all at once which is an expression of God's love! Will you please help me raise the necessary funds to make The Love Truck a reality?
This is a passionate, committed outreach ministry, and I hope you will reach out and help us to help the hopeless and the helpless. The harvest is ripe, but the laborers are few; will you please put your hand to the plow with me? So, roll up your sleeves, and put on your combat boots, and together we can change lives and save souls.
"Indifference finds excuses, but love finds a way." This ministry was born out of thankfulness for what God has done, and will do with those of us who need a 2nd chance. And remember, "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil, is for good men to do nothing."
