MEET OUR TEAM
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.
DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS
Candace has been a faithful supporter of GL4G over the years. She served during a season of several events including, My Fairy Tale Ball, and personally hosted a girls' bible study based on our book, Finding Your Fairy Tale Ending, where we first got connected. Candace is a true princess in heart and spirit and loves to disciple the next generation to find that same identity in Jesus. She, her husband and daughter live in Murfreesboro, TN.
God used Cathy in sharing our mission several years ago that led to B&H discovering and publishing our first edition of Finding Your Fairy Tale Ending. Cathy is kind, faithful and compassionate and has joyfully served in her church, home and ministries to show the love of Jesus. She is ready to help GL4G combat the lies of the enemy, build up the next generation to know whose they are and help these girls live out their faith fearlessly! Cathy is mom of 3 graduates. She and her husband live in Franklin, TN.
We felt the Lord confirming that we needed another godly man on our board and Kevin came highly recommended. Kevin serves as the Student Pastor at Family Worship Center in Murfreesboro, TN. His wisdom, experience, kindness and energy has blessed our team. Kevin is passionate to see this next generation walk with their Heavenly Father and excited to be working with others who share this same passion.
Mike became a bold teen for Christ who traveled and shared the Good News of Jesus through singing and evangelism for many years. His faith-filled steps, love and knowledge of God’s Word, sincerity of prayer, and ability to encourage others has been such a blessing to our leadership. Mike has two children, and he and his wife live in Murfreesboro, TN.
Sherry’s daughter was able to journey through our Finding Your Fairy Ending curriculum several years ago and it’s been sweet how God reconnected Sherry with GL4G through our recent Sponsor a Princess opportunity. Sherry is a lover of people and a servant. She is involved in her community and church. As a homeschool mom on 3, she not only discipled her kids, but invested in many others through theater and clogging. She is excited to see what God is doing in this next generation! Sherry and her husband Zack live in Smyrna, 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.
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.
Cahlia became involved with GL4G after some local gatherings and attending our online Battle Cry event in early 2020. She stands out as leader among her peers and a steadfast friend, encourager and hard worker. She wants to grow in her ability to share the gospel with others and we have been honored to have her on our team. Cahlia is a high school senior in Lebanon, TN.
