Kris Wolfe: The Missing Ingredient in Church (ISO “Hazel”)

 

Kris WolfeClarksville, TN – I started attending church in the 80’s. I was 12, and very intimidated by the church scene. All the kids knew stuff. They knew about people from the Bible. They had verses memorized. They had always been in church.

I felt like a deviant weirdo misfit on a weekly basis. I didn’t hate church, but I can’t say that I liked it.

Well except on potluck days. Then I loved church.

It wasn’t just the creamy green bean casserole with fried crunchy onions on top. It wasn’t the potluck itself. What I really liked was not something you’d think a 12 year old would even care about.

APSU, Maaco, & Operation Turnaround helps teens turn their lives around with Project 59

 

Austin Peay State University LogoRestoring a rusted 1959 Pontiac Catalina may be a daunting task but perhaps not as challenging as helping at-risk teens better their lives.

However, empowering these teens to perform a full restoration of the ’59 Catalina is the mission of Project 59, an initiative led by Mitch Rollins, an adjunct faculty member in the APSU Department of Psychology.

Rollins also is the owner of Maaco, a collision repair center in Clarksville, which partners with the Clarksville Police Department in a program called Operation Turnaround. Project 59 is a component of the program, with 24 at-risk teens participating.
