This is a first in a series of events we will be hosting in 2020.

I will be forever grateful that Jesus sent this beautiful girl named Diedra Cooke to our Celebrate Recovery meeting. She let me tag along with her to NA and AA meetings and introduced me to people who taught me about addiction.


It's ugly.

It's heartbreaking.

It's made me cry to the point of having to pull over my car to throw up.


It's also fueled my faith like nothing else. I've seen so many miracles that I can't name them all. I'm sure some of you are like I was and clueless about the lives of the addicts next door. Here is your chance to hear some honest insight about the drug epidemic within our community. Hear about the strain it puts on our community and worse, our children.  Hear some ideas about what you and/or your church can do to help!

I'm excited about the future of the Twin Counties. Let's join together and #reducethedemand.


God Bless,

Kisha Johnson
