Allen’s Story: Ready To Give Up

Bethel News

At age 12, Allen Green was ready to give up on life.

He had dropped out of school and run away. The statistics would say he had no chance for a future.

Allen wound up at Bethel Bible Village, where his House Parents, Floyd and Deborah Richardson, introduced him to a Christ-centered and purpose-driven approach to life.  He still faced struggles, but he learned the value of grit and perseverance.

Now a Chattanooga firefighter, Allen explains how he beat the odds and found hope at Bethel.


Giving Back

Allen knows there are many kids who share hard stories and he wanted to do something to help them. So he started a nonprofit organization called PPCH focused on mentoring youth. He recently brought volunteers from his organization out to Bethel, to host an inspirational “Back To School Bash” for our kids.

Inspired by Allen’s determination to make a difference, TV reporter Lori Mitchell shared his story on WRCB-TV:

We love his heart for giving back and representing Christ for kids in crisis.
