OPEN HOUSE UPDATE:
Due to the current circumstances surrounding Covid-19, we are tentatively rescheduling our NEW Tetelestai House OPEN HOUSE for SATURDAY, JULY 18, 2020. This date is subject to change, as we will be following all government guidelines. Please check back often or follow us on Facebook for updates as we get closer!
Tetelestai is the Greek translation of the last words Jesus spoke on the cross when He said,
"IT IS FINISHED." John 19:30
Tetelestai House is a caring house for women coming out of jail or prison who want to make a change in their lives.
Tetelestai House is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) public charity.
We seek to provide a safe, drug free, violence free environment.
We offer a one year program where the women will spend each day in God's Word--learning about who Jesus is and how His principles are to be applied to their individual lives.
We teach life skills and offer classes according to residents' needs (i.e. GED prep, job readiness, etc.) in order to help the ladies reenter the work force and become productive citizens once again.
Tracy was a drug addict for 16 years. During that time, she walked out on her husband and three children, leaving behind anyone who had ever truly loved her. Her life spiraled out of control and she wondered many days why she was still alive. Her life of drugs and crime resulted in a 3 year sentence in prison at the Arkansas Department of Corrections.
While in prison, Tracy turned her life over to Christ. Since her release in 2010, she has been actively serving in a local New Testament church and God began to plug her into jail ministry. It was there that she saw the need for a way to come alongside the ladies when they were released. After much prayer, God began to set things in motion and Tetelestai House was born.
Over time, God restored her broken family. She and her husband, Ron, have been married 20 years and enjoy spending time with their children and four grandchildren.
God has taken that which the enemy meant for harm and is using it to powerfully impact His Kingdom.
