FOUNDER & EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
GL4G started with Dechari’s heart to share the fullness of Jesus with the next generations of girls. In 2007, she asked God a powerful question, “How do I tell them they don’t have to settle; that You have so much more for them if they will trust You with everything?” God has since led Dechari to author, incorporate GL4G as a nonprofit, create Christian conferences and events, and disciple girls across the USA. Dechari & her husband live in Nashville, TN.
Mary Claire started as a 6th grader going to a GL4G event called “Designed with Purpose.” She was so impacted & encouraged in her faith that she started more boldly sharing Jesus in her everyday life with her peers. Fast forward through some years of discipleship and as a senior God led MC to co-lead our latest conference, “Battle Cry.” Mary Claire is attending college in Wilmington, NC.
DEVELOPMENT & DONOR RELATIONS
Cortney has an array of gifts & talents including marketing, strategic planning, and fundraising. She has also started a nonprofit and supported several others. But more than anything, she has a heart for this next generation & wants to use her skills as well as her gifts of teaching, speaking & exhortation to further this ministry. Cortney will also be that friendly person checking in to see how our supporters are doing. Cortney, her husband and two children live in Murfreesboro, TN.
Carol Ann has been with this ministry when it was just being birthed. Her church hosted GL4G's first event which was a weekend retreat called "Worth The Wait - Girls Only Weekend." As pastor's wife, youth leader, mom, and friend, God has used her to be an ear of discernment and encouragement for this ministry. She, her husband and two kids live in Elkin, NC.
Nathan serves as the pastor of Trinity Baptist Church in Deep Gap, NC. As a shepherd, father, and man who loves to study God's Word, we feel Nathan will give GL4G some really great spiritual oversight, perspective and wisdom. Nathan desires for this next generation, including his daughter, to reach their full God-given potential. Nathan, his wife and 3 children live in Deep Gap, NC
Kathie was an encouraging voice several years ago as Dechari sought God in stepping out to serve this next generation. GL4G is now thankful to have her utilize her background in marketing, women's ministries, and counseling to push us farther in ministering to the broken hearted and show them there is hope in Jesus! Kathie, her husband and two children live in Brentwood, TN.
Kathy has faithfully served as our Treasurer at GL4G at the same time encouraging others to be a part of the tools and events we offer. She is a CPA with a generous heart toward others and desire for this next generation to follow God and not give in to peer pressure. She lives in Candler, TN and has two grown children.
