Family to start new afterschool program

The former directors of Wilmington's Brigade Boys and Girls Club who were forced out because of a nepotism policy are starting over. JoAnn Clark and her son Derrell are making plans to open a new Christian-based after school program called Mustard Seed Ministry. They are sending out letters this week notifying parents. Mrs. Clark said they have already named their board members and are scouting locations in a central part of Wilmington. After leaving the Boys and Girls Club, Clark said she believes everything happens for a reason. "When things happen in life and we don't understand the reason behind them, you can either let it destroy you, or you can go on. Our focus is to go on and to build upon what has happened in our lives." If you are interested in the Clarks' new program, you can contact JoAnn Clark at 910-352-8592.

God is good!

I go to mustard seed and I love it! It is full of fun and more fun! Mrs. Clark is the best! She is out to help kids of working parents have a grest summer!

God will prevail!

Through it all, God will still be on the throne and He will prevail! My prayers are with JoAnn, Derrell and the Board of Directors as they seek to honor God in their endeavors.


I would like to congratulate the Clark family for their preseverance and determination to hold on to God's vision for our future leaders, the children. I wish them much success & blessings in their endeavours. God Bless! Sis. Cassandra
