November Prayer Gathering

Who: Melinda Perez

Sector: Local Business

Melinda Perez is a Bronx, NY native having spent most of her adulthood commuting between Manhattan and New Jersey. She grew up rebelling against both parents and leadership, fought through addictions and wild behavior learning all the lessons no parent would want their child to experience. Because she has survived so much, she is able to speak firsthand how God can use every, even the dark ones, to show His love for us. She now resides in Lawrenceville with her husband and family. Melinda gave up her career as a designer to help women and teens redeem their mind and bodies back to Christ through Ignyte Global Body movement, a fitness program that offers an alternative to Yoga.

January Prayer Gathering

Guest Speakers: Patrice Wuerth and Debbie Anglin from Hearts to Nourish Hope

Hearts to Nourish Hope is a community-driven nonprofit that provides high quality programs to identify and develop the internal resources of youth aged 16-24 in Clayton, Fayette and Gwinnett Counties. Like all grassroots non-profits, we grew from a very simple idea - if youth were provided constructive activities to do when they were suspended or expelled, they would be less likely to engage in dangerous, illegal and risky behavior.

Hearts to Nourish Hope has recently come to Lawrenceville and is serving our youth in tremendous ways. They were instrumental in helping secure jobs for graduating seniors from Central Gwinnett HS as we launched the Summer of Impact.

Sector Focus: Nonprofit
