Linked 11: Keys For Serving with Kari Heffron
Today on Are You Real Linked you will hear the heart and passion of one woman who has been called my God to help heal and restore women and children who have found themselves homeless.
Kari Heffron is the Woman & Children Program Coordinator at The Oliver Gospel Mission in Columbia, South Carolina. They are currently serving 27 women and 19 families in their area. They are very intentional about calling themselves a “Transitional Home” and not a homeless shelter.
After the Holy Spirit set Kari free from a reckless lifestyle, Kari came to the conclusion that being homeless is not someone’s identity it is just a result of being broken. God started a fire in her heart to create a safe place for homeless women and children to come and feel safe, loved, protected, wanted, and somewhere they can meet Jesus.
After 10 years of pressing into God Kari’s dream finally came to fruition. Even though Kari is walking in her calling now she gets real about the struggles that come with this type of ministry.
Kari is a true City Taker and we can’t wait to see what God does next with her ministry.
