Mrs. Cory was indecisive growing up and if asked she wanted to "grow up' to become two things. Now, God has given her those childhood dreams. As a 15 year Registered nurse she is able to offer the children of RCA help with medical needs & TLC! She is also enjoying teaching elementary students. Having jumped on board when RCA doors opened in 2013, she has taught 2nd & 3rd grade. She is a PROUD Army Brat as a child, who now lives in Dalevillie with her husband & 4 children.... all serving the Lord.
Ms. Alison is from Washington County, where her Father is the pastor, where she worked faithfully for many years. She came to Enterprise shortly after graduating High School, She then attended Refuge School of Ministry in 2013/14. Once graduated she moved to Texarkana, AR to work with another ministry school while working with the young girls. Now, she has moved back to Enterprise where God is allowing her to fulfill one her childhood dreams of being in full time ministry while being a secretary. Ms. Alison is excited to be able to work along side some of the best while pouring into these students everyday.

Hello! My name is Tristen Powell. I am very excited to be teaching 5th grade this year. I have completed two years in the Refuge School of Ministry under Pastor Greg Adkins and staff. I am 20 years old, was raised in Enterprise, Alabama and graduated from Enterprise High School. I feel called to global missions and I feel this will be a great training ground for me to work on! I'm very excited to work beside you while pouring into your child. 
My name is Denise Perales, I am happily married to loving husband, Sal Perales and we have the privilege of getting to raise 12 world changers we get to call our children.
