“Since I began serving at City of Truth I noticed a change in my confidence level, and attitude. I’ve never been to a place as welcoming and as loving as City of Truth.”

Hi, my name is Monae. Since I began serving at City of Truth I noticed a change in my confidence level, and attitude. I enjoy serving others and I’ve never been to a place as welcoming and as loving as City of Truth. I am so excited to serve with the welcoming team. And I don’t believe I would be where I am today without the love and support from my City of Truth family. I now want to be a go getter and go after my dreams and set goals in life whereas before I was always afraid to try. God is working in my life and is showing me through others that anything is possible and as long as I stay on the right path and trust in God and his will, I will continue to thrive and be able to help others along the way.

“I learned the true meaning of forgiveness and allowing God to come into my life and restore my heart, mind, body and soul.I can honestly say, I do not know where I would be physically, mentally, emotionally, or spiritually without joining COTC.”

That I have a better outlook on life. I began living and understanding the purpose God has on my life. I build relationships and friendships now, before I was very secluded and feeling that no one could be trusted. I’ve began restoring my torn relationship with my mother, before I never had an urge to have a relationship with due to past hurt. I no longer carry around burdens of others, I learned the true meaning of forgiveness and allowing God to come into my life and restore my heart, mind, body and soul. The change was almost immediate, which completely terrified me, however now it has been the absolute BEST thing that has ever happen to me. I can honestly say, I do not know where I would be physically, mentally, emotionally, or spiritually without joining COTC. Our Pastor, First Lady, deacons, and countless members have impacted and changed my life in so many ways I forever grateful and truly blessed to be apart of this family.
