BRACK: Exciting activities in Gwinnett cities with envisioning leaders

By Elliott Brack, editor and publisher | One of the bright areas in Gwinnett in 2017 is the tremendous vision, funding and activity going on in some of our cities.

Partially funded by the cities of Gwinnett’s greater share of SPLOST funds, but augmented by growth in city revenues, there is a feeling of bustle and movement in some of Gwinnett’s cities that is nothing less than exciting.

FOCUS: Truth ministry has special partner in 72-pound golden retriever

By Scarlett Rigsby, Lawrenceville, Ga. | “Building relationships.” “No us and them.” “Meeting others where they are.” “It all counts”….these are statements frequently heard when the mission of Nothing but the Truth Ministry is explained.

I founded Nothing but the Truth as a charitable 501c3 in 2010 with the idea that it would seek to understand the needs of the community and then to mobilize ministry partners to meet those needs. What began as a small Bible study in a room of a local extended stay hotel has grown rapidly into a multi-faceted ministry. In 2013, the Nothing but the Truth’s Ministry Center opened its offices on Langley Drive near downtown Lawrenceville. It is centrally located near several low-income housing options.
