CENTREVILLE Derrick Miliner, lay minister and author of "God's Grace is Sufficient From the Projects to the Pulpit," was the guest speaker at the Willing Women with a Purpose (WWWAP) on Saturday, June 18, at the Centre for the Arts building in Centreville.
The event was sponsored by Bethel A.M.E. Church, Centreville, and its pastor, the Rev. Terry A. Gaddy.
In his talk, Miliner shared some of his downfalls from abusing drugs, alcohol and womanizing at an early age. However, by the grace of God, he said, he was able to move from "the projects to the pulpit" to fulfill his destiny.

The WWWAP thanked Miliner and his family for attending the event, as well as Jim and Hada Flowers for buying everyone a book, the Queen Anne's County Arts Council for the use of its building and all those who attended the event.
