Sweet Freedom Dessert Social & Fundraiser

Speaker - John Turnipseed

Location: Courtyard by Marriott Moorhead, MN

Heart of Clay will hold a fundraising event, and our featured speaker will be John Turnipseed, a former gang leader, pimp, and drug dealer who spent his childhood battling demons brought on by a volatile, abusive father. In a 20-year journey, John has transformed into a community leader, pastor, speaker, and he serves as the Executive Vice President of Urban Ventures Leadership Foundation, a non-profit set in the heart of the same Minneapolis, Minnesota gang territory that John and his family terrorized.

On Tuesday, October 5th you can listen to how faith, hope, and forgiveness backed up by persevering mentors and role models are essential for real and relevant transformation. You can partner with Heart of Clay as we work together to bring these vital elements into the lives of men, women, and families in Clay County.

This will be a great evening of food, music, and a chance to hear directly from someone whose life has been transformed. Please join us!

The program starts at 7:00 pm.
