Christ Embassy International Hosts School Uniform Drive Transition Brings New Life to Revelation Knowledge Outreach Center – The Observer


LAPLACE — LaPlace’s Revelation Knowledge Outreach Center is transitioning to Christ Embassy International, a new ministry that will be officially introduced to the community with a school uniform drive for children in need.

The Embassy of Christ will host a family back-to-school event on July 30 that includes a distribution of uniforms, food and refreshments, a waterslide, bouncy house, and other activities for children.

New or lightly used school shirts, skirts, pants and socks are accepted between Monday, June 27 and Monday, July 25.

Donations can be dropped off at Christ Embassy International, 125 Ash St. in LaPlace, or at the St. John the Baptist Parish Library Reserve branch located at 170 W. 10e St. in reserve.

Apostle Ahkem Wilson said Christ Embassy International will continue the positive work that Revelation Knowledge has put in place for young people in the community. Wilson himself is a product of DeVare’s guidance.

Wilson became a member of the Revelation Knowledge Ministry at age 11 in 2008. DeVare was driving a school bus through LaPlace when Wilson came running to the bus and asked without hesitation if she could pick him up for a Bible study. DeVare immediately recognized something special about the young man, something she knew she had to remember.

Their story came full circle nearly 15 years later, as the Holy Spirit recently called on DeVare and her husband to allow Wilson to take their beloved church to the next level.

“We definitely appreciate the fruit of his work with young people. God was faithful to her because she was faithful to him,” Wilson said. “We want to let the community know that Revelation Knowledge has come out of hiding, changed its name, and the ministry is still alive. We add vitality and sparkle to the church.

Wilson believes that Christ Embassy can become a positive force for the community, similar to New Wine Christian Fellowship. In addition to the back-to-school event, Wilson hopes to feed local children and cultivate a place of worship that will bring renewed energy to young people.

Christ Embassy administrator Ellaina Williams said the conduct of the uniform serves as an introduction to the community.

“We try to donate school supplies and uniforms to help families in need for the upcoming school year and at the same time let the neighborhood know we are here. Our ministry is based on giving back, and God blesses us for taking care of each other,” Williams said. “Youth will be a big priority for us. That’s where our focus is, especially with what’s going on right now. Not only do we have to repress them; we also need to place them in a place where we can not only pour into them spiritually, but give them that space to grow and learn.
