About Our Ministry
Paul and Tarra Green have committed their lives to helping people in crisis experience our one true hope in Jesus Christ.
Paul and Tarra Green have owned a scrap and auto salvage yard for 31 years. They now see their ministry in the restoration of hearts and souls.
Pathway to Hope is their new salvage yard where our clients come to understand the Gods grace and truth. We believe He defines us all by His destiny for us, not our history.
Just as the Lord sees the best in each of us, a salvage yard owner sees the potential in every piece; what others see as trash or junk, he sees as valuable treasure.
One of the common issues our clients face is bondage: either through the cycle of incarceration, addictions, depression often resulting in broken lives, marriages and families. They carry childhood wounds into adulthood that have never been brought before the cross for true healing.
Paul is a retired brick and stone masonry construction contractor, with a history of alcohol and drug abuse that began as far back as 1968. His addiction was hard driven and ever expanding until he hit a brick wall in 1983. In the form of an intervention imposed by loved ones and the local authorities, Paul began the process of identifying the problems of addictions that had a chock hold on him.
Today Paul lays claim to more than 35 years of total freedom from any alcohol consumption and any mood-changing drugs. Because of this, he has found a new life living in union with the Holy Spirit of God. He embraces Jesus Christ as his Lord, as his Savior. Now he wants to share this new life with others. His focused audience is people in his prison ministry and street ministry and those with addictions.
Tarra was trained, certified and worked as a lay Christian counselor for 13 years at Grace Ministries in Manassas, VA as the Training Director as well as lay counselor. She is certified in healing prayer, which she uses regularly. She has experience in dealing with addiction, depression, anxiety, marriage issues, fear, eating disorders, and cutting as well mentoring people in their everyday life struggles through the counseling/mentory ministry, prison ministry and street ministry.
Tarra and Paul have been married since 1986, and have two grown daughters and grandchildren.
