God has blessed us with so much to celebrate this anniversary year! Six decades in ministry is a big accomplishment and we thank our founding father, Johnny Zenoni, for his vision and obedience in starting Providence Home back in 1963, and for all those who came alongside Johnny over the many years to sustain the mission and continue to grow it after his passing in 1993.
While much has changed since Zenoni started our mission with eight men on a farm in Lexington County, our focus on Jesus Christ in the ministering of men has never wavered.
We recently learned from Zenoni’s family that he dreamed of building a chapel for “his men.” It was a dream shared by our Executive Director Rob Settle who worked over the years with our amazing board of directors to make it a reality.
The William “Bill” Cogdill Memorial Chapel was officially opened and dedicated on April 17, 2023. God granted us a stunning (albeit windy!) day in which to gather and dedicate the chapel to the Lord.
Here’s a look back on our chapel build in this special keepsake Chapel Grand Opening edition:
