Nothing happens by accident for the child of God.
In the summer of 1994, Shelley was teaching school. While serving as the Director of Singles at Henderson Hills Church, she met Pam, who served as a teacher in her department. Pam’s newly found class contained five single mothers.
Shelley left the department at church to work in the newborn nursery. A few years later, she sought out a women’s Bible study group. God directed her to Pam’s class, now a gathering of over 250 women from all walks of life.
One evening on Pam’s backyard deck, Shelley expressed with Pam, “I believe God is leading us to begin a Christian organization together.” And the rest is history; indeed, “His-story!”
In 2012 Arise celebrated her 10 year anniversary.
Psalms 126:3 – The Lord has done great things for us and we are filled with joy.
