Hometown: Charlotte, NC
Charity: The Victory Christian Center (VCC) Church in the City Women’s Shelter is an outreach ministry that offers encouragement, nourishment, and housing to single women who have found themselves temporarily homeless as they transition to a more stable living situation.
Team Members: Lisa (Moorehead) Robinson, Min. Shawn Cunningham, and Cheryl Riley
Two siblings (Shawn and Cheryl) and their friend, Lisa, share a love for competing at the games of Scrabble and Words with Friends. All three Believers preach that a solid education is critical to providing a diversity of careers options.
Shawn is the charismatic team leader who has overcome some tough challenges including a brief period of functional homelessness (more commonly known as “couch surfing”). When he looked at himself one day he didn’t like what he saw. Shawn drew upon his Faith and the college education he has been blessed with to motivate himself to get on a solid financial footing.
The entire team challenges everyone to look for opportunities to encourage others and to share the love of God through displays of compassion toward those in need …..particularly in the area of homelessness, both here on earth, and securing our eternal home with Christ.
