DASH at Shiloh Baptist Church

Thank you to Shiloh Baptist Church (McLean, VA) and their Kingdom Pearls and Kingdom Gents Youth Ministry for hosting a DASH presentation. These teens were a terrific group who will certainly take Shev’s story to heart. After the presentation, the teens took a dating abuse quiz arranged by their Servant Leaders and passed with flying colors, reinforcing the importance of the DASH message! Thank you Natalie Bailey, Debbie Woodbury and Jerome Dixon for inviting us!
