Throughout 2013, listeners will hear from presidents of organizations who are global change agents. We will also hear from CEOs of social enterprise businesses who are changing communities and college educators who are taking their students out of the classroom and into surrounding neighborhoods to learn and serve others.
On Saturday, August 3, 2013 listen to Genma Holmes speak at Olive Branch Church for their Mother-Daughter Tea. Genma shared why the month of August can still be a challenging month for her after family crisis from several years ago. She shares how her faith kept her focused while raising teens and the power of others praying for you. She shared lessons learned along the way about herself (and others) and how she became involved in the Oasis Center.
In the midst of recounting a painful chapter in her life, Genma promises to make you laugh while crying. She hopes the show will move you into helping others while reminding us that it truly takes a village to raise a child. The theme for the Olive Branch Church's 2013 Mother-Daughter Tea was Blooming and Blossoming in Grace. Scripture reference for the event was Isaiah 35:2.

More About the Oasis Center
The Oasis Center is a nationally recognized organization on a mission to help young people move into a happy, healthy, and productive adulthood.
Oasis Center is a place where ideas come to life. A place where creativity and dreams meet a commitment to act.
The old model of youth “charity” tries to match a young person’s needs with the services the agency offers. In today’s world, that model doesn’t work.
Oasis Center recognizes that the lives of our young people are complex, and that supporting their healthy transition to adulthood can’t happen through a singular support.
The Oasis Center currently offers 21 programs ranging from Nashville’s only crisis teen shelter to Nashville’s only college counseling center for first generation college students. That’s why over a third of the Oasis Center's young people are involved in more than one programs or services. The Oasis Center is making a real difference in the lives of Nashville’s youth.
More About Olive Branch Church

|2013 Mother-Daughter Tea|
Olive Branch continues to be a blessing to others through various local and international outreach initiatives. Each initiative falls under three focal areas of concern in our community: Illiteracy, Hunger, and Poverty. The Antioch location currently participates in 16 different projects aimed at combating each of these issues, and Murfreesboro currently participates in 18.
At Olive Branch Church members are constantly shown and told that they are valuable; their minds are valuable; their bodies are valuable; and their dreams are valuable. Although there is much work to be done in the vineyard, our aim and church focus is to reflect the love and grace of God; connect all to the body of Christ; and Commission the saved to win souls.
