Juvenile Hall

Pastor Deborah having a past history of juvenile delinquency, has a big open heart for today's youth. She ministers regularly at her own local juvenile hall. Just recently she has been appointed the very first Youth Chaplain in her county. Deborah truly has seen the restoration power of God in her own life. God gloriously saved, delivered and trained her up to be a general in his army. Now a leader in the same community she rebelled in as a youth, she is now recruiting other youths into God's army.

Deborah is convinced that every child has a special destiny mapped out by God and a future full of hope. Every kid is a candidate in her eyes and God's to carry his anointing and empowerment. Deborah & Steve are currently working on plans to see a Christian youth training center in their community. They are ready and equipped to see this generation rise up and be totally restored and positioned to advance & enlarge the Kingdom of God.

Isaiah 54:4 "Fear Not, for you shall not be ashamed; neither be confounded and depressed, for you shall not be put to shame. FOR YOU SHALL FORGET THE SHAME OF YOUR YOUTH."

SPECIAL LETTERS FROM SPECIAL KIDS

Below, you will find partial letters from the kids incarcerated in the local Juvenile Hall where Pastor Deborah ministers. These letters were sent as thank you's for some resurrection baskets prepared and delivered on Easter.

Dear Pastor's Deborah & Steve,
Thank you for everything you have done for me. I really appreciate it sincerely. It makes me feel good to know that someone really cares. Thank you for visiting my sister at home and in the hospital and leading her to the Lord in prayer. I appreciated that the most. Thank you for everything you have done for me. I hope this letter finds you in the best of health.

Dear Pastor's Steve & Deborah, I am writing to say thank you for the Easter baskets you brought to us, because no-one else even thought of us in here. Maybe one day I will come to your church and thank you in person out there. I will see you soon, God Bless.

Dear Pastor's Steve & Deborah,
Thank you for the beautiful Easter baskets, they were really nice. There is not a lot of people who want to do stuff as nice as you did for kids like us. It's really nice to see someone as kind and courteous as you are. Really appreciated it and thanks again for all you do and all your help.

Dear Pastor's Steve & Deborah,
I would like to sincerely thank you for the Easter basket. We are not allowed to receive any gifts from anyone, so when they told us we had baskets from Promised Land World Outreach Center...it was great news. Hope you are pleased with my thanks. I will try to attend church every time you come. so far I have. I really enjoy it. I like the music & guitar playing too. I have been showing more faith in God.
