Soul Ties teen ministry now open

By CLINT FOSTER

For the past 10 months, Venue 2:17 has provided the message of Jesus Christ to over 3,000 local teenagers in a safe, positive environment in downtown Mineral Wells. But the Christian teen ministry needs more money to keep bringing the Gospel to kids on Friday and Saturday nights.

Enter Soul Ties, a re-sale shop for name-brand teen clothing opening today by Venue 2:17 founder Brenda Stewart. The store will be open Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and sell new and used clothing from popular brands such as Hurley, DC, Abercrombie and Fitch, Vans, Fox, Hollister, American Eagle and Aeropostale. All proceeds from the store will benefit Stewart's ministry.

"I wasn't planning on starting a resale shop for teenagers," Stewart said. "I wanted to teach them you have to rely on God to come up with a way to make it. Something can come out of nothing if they just have hope and rely on God. They've got to see me do it and I've got to come through it in order to minister to them. They know I have no money, they know I have no job, they know I have no education. But they know I love the Lord with all my heart. I know it's going to work, because it's God."

Stewart referenced Psalm 1, which essentially says if a person ardently loves and follows the Lord, whatever they do will prosper. That is Stewart's hope for the store and Venue 2:17.

Stewart said all of the clothes currently in the store have been purchased out of her own pocket. In order to keep the store running and offer better prices, she will need lots of donations from the community. She said she welcomes donations of any name-brand, teen clothing.
