Victims Advocate Day

Gospel Lighthouse Ministry held its seventh annual Victims Advocate Day on Saturday at Carolina Community Church in Liberty. The ministry collects needed items for women and children who have been involved in abusive homes, children who have been taken from meth lab homes and children who have been sexually abused. The ministry also provides Teddy bears for area law enforcement to give to children. Guest speakers at the event were Pickens County Sheriff Rick Clark and the Rev. Calvin Branch. Branch was presented with an honorary doctorate degree of divinity from the ministry, and Clark was given a plaque to commemorate his 18 years in law enforcement in Pickens County. Pictured above is the Rev. Daniel Stansell presenting Clark with his award.
