Sisters for Christ began in 2002 at the Bladensburg Seventh-day Adventist Church in Bladensburg, Maryland under the leadership and direction of Sister Dolores Allen. It was her dream to create a safe environment that would provide training, mentoring and skills for young ladies, ages 10-18, that they could carry with them through life. Sister Allen's dream has become a reality and today there are chapters in Washington, D.C., Virginia, Pennsylvania, and, we're proud to announce, in Baltimore where the Liberty Sisters for Christ is the newest chapter of the organization.
"That Our Daughters Will Be Of Graceful Beauty, Like the Pillar of a Palace Wall" (Based on Psalm 144:12, Living Bible)
In an effort to prevent teenage pregnancy, drug abuse and crime; to rescue at-risk teens and victims of dysfunctional homes; to restore Christian principles; and to reinforce the values being taught in the home and church, Sisters for Christ was instituted. It is our goal to create a "safe place" - a positive environment where young ladies can be nurtured, mentored, trained and empowered to become positive leaders making a difference in the community and society at large.
The Sisters for Christ program mirrors the school year (September through June).
Training modules will begin in September. We will provide modules which speak to the girls' individual needs including, but not limited to, the following modules:
- Personality & Gifts Analysis
- Career Planning
- Financial Management
- Church History
- Health & Fitness
- Healthy Dating Relationships
