In Their Words: “All I did is say, ‘Yes,’ and God moved through me to make this amazing ministry. My family went on a mission trip with our church in the summer of 2017, and after we returned my desire to do more in our local community increased. After a lot of prayer and devotions, my husband and I decided in October, 2017, for me to end my career in IT management to begin opening Risen Rock.”
—Kelly Phillips, co-owner and Executive Director of Operations.
