Gospel recording artist and Liberty County resident Donna Jackson headlined a Christian concert this past Saturday benefitting the Kirk Healing Center.

The concert was held at the Liberty County Community Complex in Midway.

“It was a powerful presentation of Christian Music,” Dr. Alicia Kirk, founder of the KHC said. “Donna is truly a superstar of Gospel Music.”

Jackson, who also co-owns Great Southern Exterminating in Midway, sang originals scores from her Gospel CD “Hold on to your Dreams.”

She has been featured on the Trinity Broadcasting Network, The Inspiration Network, Atlanta Live and various others. Her original song, “Pastor’s Song,” has been featured on Great American Gospel TV.

“Dr. Kirk has been a friend of mine for about five years,” Jackson said. “Today was amazing we had a lot of people come and support the Kirk Healing Center and her ministry…the folks that showed up today were worshipping God and it was an amazing experience.”

The KHC has been serving the homeless community as well as men who are transitioning back into society after incarceration for the past 14 years. They provide life-skill courses, temporary housing, clothing, job training and assistance in obtaining their driver’s license and identification cards.

Co-founder Dr. Eva Wooten served as the event’s emcee. She recognized one of the KHC’s success stories in Pastor Arthur Scott.

Scott said when he was released from prison, he wasn’t sure where to go and what to do with his life. He said someone told him about the Kirk Healing Center.

“I now have a part time job with Goodwill and a car,” Scott said. He said the KHC helped him put his life back together. He is also an associate pastor for Grace and Mercy Church and the new KHC Chaplain.

Scott said he feels blessed to have found the KHC after being released from prison. He said he had already changed his life by finding God while serving his time.

“We have many success stories like Arthur’s,” Dr. Kirk said. It lets me know we are changing people’s lives.”

Serving as the opening act was local musical mother-and-daughter duo Dianne Beherens and her daughter Daffani Eller Eason.

“What we accomplished and what the Lord did was so super,” Kirk said about the concert. “Dianne Beherens and her talented daughter of the Flemington Presbyterian Church are true community assets. And Dr. Eva Wooten leads a very “committed to the community” life and is becoming a very strong Christian leader and speaker. We are so fortunate to have her. Hinesville is filled with so many beautifully dedicated churches and Ministers.  It’s no wonder our community is so blessed with loving and giving citizens.”

Kirk said there are many people they hope to serve but they are in need of more financial support. She said the KHC is seeking commitments from individuals and local businesses in sponsoring one person per year through their friend of KHC campaign.
