FROM OUR FOUNDER
“For whoever wants to save their life will lose it but whoever loses their life for me and my kingdom will save it.” - Luke 9:24
The story of my life has been overcoming abuse. Starting when I was a young girl and continuing throughout my growing up years my view of men was distorted at a young age. But it didn’t really hit me until my freshmen year of college when I entered into a two-year long abusive relationship.
I had accepted the things he did to me and told myself I deserved it. I told myself that I needed to settle because I wasn’t worthy of anything better than that. I thought very little of myself and didn’t allow Jesus to be my source of strength.
Two years in, I worked up the courage to leave that relationship for good. Shortly after, God called me to move to Florida. What I thought was God calling me to the next best thing was actually God calling me to solitude. For my first two years in Florida, God kept me all to himself. God so graciously stripped everything away from me until all that was left was him.
Through many months of intense therapy and a lot of one-on-one time with Jesus, he slowly started to put the pieces back together but he didn’t allow me to become the young insecure girl I was before. No, this time, he rebuilt me into the woman he has called me to be. And NOW I have the incredible opportunity to serve and disciple others through the ministry God has called me to.
You don’t have to stay stuck BUT you can’t get out of it without Jesus.
The very thing that once terrified me (the idea of marriage) is now something that excites me. The very thing I used to run away from is now the thing I wait so patiently for. When Jesus is your foundation, EVERYTHING changes.
I’m in the process of losing my life for him and it’s the most beautiful journey I’ve ever been on."

The Message behind the Mission
By definition, overcome is a term used to articulate the courageous act of defeating one’s opponent and to victoriously prevail.
By destiny, God has purposed each and every one of His beloved sons and daughters to do what, by definition, overcome means.
Because what the enemy meant to be destructive, God destined to be OVERCOME.
As a ministry birthed out of the God-breathed vision to see souls set free from the oppressive weight that comes from past regrets, perpetual sins, unspeakable thoughts, unforgivable actions, and unbearable emotional turmoil, Overcome is a platform that God has paved for you and I, for her and him, for them, and for US to position ourselves into a posture of unmasked vulnerability, resilience, and, ultimately, freedom.
After the breakdown comes the breakthrough!
On the other side of strenuous is something SUPERNATURAL.
and through the oppressive seasons that the enemy destined for destruction come the opportunities that God has paved to position His people to become victors that OVERCOME.
