Who We are

Excerpts From Past

When the ideas that led to the foundation of GHEP was muted, it sounded like a pipe dream, but when the dreams materialized, it continues to amaze how the organization is working within the community changing lives and minds.

Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do. Treat people as if they were what they ought to be and you help them to become what they are capable of being.” Goethe

Being a Christian is more than just an instantaneous conversion – it is a daily process whereby you grow to be more and more like Christ.

Billy Graham

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.

C. S. Lewis

I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me
