Thursday, August 18, 2016

The Executive Committee of the DeKalb Baptist Association is bringing a ministry designed for women who are released from jail in DeKalb County. The ministry’s function will be to keep the women from ending up back in a destructive environment. DeKalb County Sheriff Jimmy Harris says, they are excited and humbled about the announcement. He says, The Summit will be used for the ministry. The property was given to the County by people representing the owners – the Cathy family and the late Truett Cathy - Founder of Chick-fil-A. The Summit is a 16,000 square foot home on 96 acres with 2 other homes on the property. Harris says, this is a great opportunity for the women of DeKalb County to be in a Christian based environment and a safe haven until they can get their lives back on track.
