CWJC Highlight

Gibson County CWJC celebrates 19 years and have come a long way from a small office and thrift store. Today they occupy over 6000 sq. ft. of thrift store, office, and classroom space. God blesses them daily with donations from the community to sell. These donations, along with the support of churches and the Golden Offering for Tennessee Missions, make it possible to pay rent, utilities, salaries and support their transition ministries.
