Hello, my name is David Havice. I have been blessed with the privilege of being the Founder and Creator of The City of Help.
In 2009 my son, Dustin, entered the Teen Challenge Program which impacted my life through the 15 months of interaction and participation more than I would have ever imagined. I began to desire a closer relationship with God than I had experienced before. Through a series of events and particularly a church service I had watched on TV during this time, I asked Jesus to be Lord of my life. This led to God completely and thoroughly setting me free from 37 years of daily alcohol consumption. Praise the Lord!
2 Corinthians 6:2 (My birthday)
For He says, "At the acceptable time (the time of grace) I listened to you, And I helped you on the day of salvation." Behold, now is " the acceptable time," behold, now is "the day of salvation"
Then in 2010 through a Christian TV program I was introduced to the teaching of Dean Sikes, "A Life Worth Living / How to Discover & Fulfill God's Call on Your Life". After I had read and went through the process I was amazed to discover Dean's teaching was being shared at Teen Challenge also. This God inspired teaching was the inspiration for The City of Help. Over a 6 month period God had given me dreams, direction, and plans for the creation of this life-enhancing and nurturing program.
The main motivation that has been driving me is the love of God I have for my son, Dustin. Unfortunately after he returned home...he went back to his previous life and the people that were used to trap him in the first place. If he would have had the next step, the opportunity after the successful program of Teen Challenge to taste and feel all that God had for him, I believe he would be prospering, healthy and happy, walking in the blessings of God today.
So with God's motivation, help, direction, and strength through Jesus living in and through me and all those God is calling... The City of Help will give people a place to grow into the men and women of God they were created to be.
Over the next 6 years God set into motion all the series of events that had to take place in my life before this dream, this vision, could become a reality. God put such a hunger and thirst to know Him in my heart that I read the Bible and went to church at every opportunity. I listened to as many messages about the Word that I could. With each year drawing closer and closer to the plan not only for my life, but for those that I will encounter.
In 2014 I took the most important step of the process which was to close my business of 24 years in Arizona to go to study from God's best at Charis Bible College in the mountains of Colorado. There I received my Ministry License and Business Degree.
2 Corinthians 5:17 ( My birthday!) KJV
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
Now is the time!
The players are being gathered, the field is being prepared, there is excitement in the air.
What is your dream? Your vision? What has God placed in your heart? How can you be a part of The City of Help?
