  • Dennis' Story

    Today I am a different man. I’ve been clean and sober since 2011 and I’m now the “go to guy” in the facilities department here at Mel Trotter Ministries. I have my own place, a nice car and my family back. But the main thing is, I have peace in my life – that peace that only the Lord can bring me. I work here at Mel Trotter and my job in facilities gives me the opportunity to show guys like me what God is all about and how He can restore their lives.

  • I'm blessed to work at MTM

    By watching Julius interact with the guests, it’s clear that he loves and values each one of them. He helps them see that God has more for them. “I just try to help them understand that God hasn’t given up on them. They always smile when I say that, but I remind them that God woke them up for a reason, they have another chance to better their lives…”
