4:13 Strong Day of Service


Nashville Non-Profit Helps Another Non-Profit Through Day of Service

 NASHVILLE, Tenn. (April 13, 2015) – Today, 4:13 Strong, a Middle Tennessee non-profit organization transforming the lives of at-risk young men, held a “Day of Service” to give back to the Nashville community. The current class of young men in the program and 4:13 Strong staff installed flooring for Family Affair Ministries. The flooring will provide for Family Affair Ministries’ upcoming summer camp programs and new day care program for at-risk kids in the Nashville area.

“We’ve been praying for these floors to get finished in time for our upcoming summer camp and day care programs, and we are thankful that 4:13 Strong stepped up to help,” said Pastor Glenda Gleaves-Sutton, President of Family Affair Ministries. “These floors will provide our ministry and the Nashville community with a safe, clean area to grow.”

4:13 Strong chose this particular day to align with the organization’s name, which is symbolic of Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

“4:13 Strong’s goal to build better men to build a better community nicely aligns with Family Affair’s mission to transform communities,” said Steve Norris, President of 4:13 Strong. “We’re glad we could dedicate our Day of Service to an organization that offers such meaningful programs to the Nashville community.”


4:13 Strong is a faith-based, Middle Tennessee non-profit organization that works with at-risk young men by immersing them in a rigorous 6-month program. We find our confidence in Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” With this confidence, we radically transform lives by providing the tools these men need to succeed both personally and professionally, making them of value to themselves and the Middle Tennessee community.
