Kerry Martin

Kerry Martin, a current participant in the Spiritual Transformation Program, tells the story of what brought him there and how he’s becoming closer to God.

My name is Kerry Martin. I’ve always been part of the church community but not in the Word. I’ve stayed in the World all of my adult life and never acquired anything of my own. I’ve had some material things–a car, apartment, relationships, even time with family–but I’ve always stayed in the World.

So in the late part of Spring 2009 a person named Mr. Donald Melvin had a friend named chaplain Donald Ross. Mr. Don Melvin told me about Central Union Mission, and through this program I’m learning to become stronger in the Word, as well as be around people who are well grounded in the Word. And become the individual that GOD wants me to be. Central Union Mission has given me the opportunity to do that.
