Jim Antonucci is the recipient of the 2009 Distinguished Living Free Ministry Award for outstanding ministry. Jim Antonucci has served his church, Faith Assembly, and led outreach in local prisons for over ten years. He has mentored facilitators and led groups in church, prisons and many other settings. His amazing wife, Mary Anne, has served selflessly by his side.
Dr. Lee was deeply touched while visiting with people affected by Jim's ministry. One grateful participant commented, "This ministry has opened my eyes to what 'true' faith is. I cannot tell you the changes this ministry has made for me in the practice of my Christian faith."
Jim's passion for outreach is evident to everyone around him, including coworkers. His Pastor remarked to Dr. Lee, "Brother Jim has been doing Turning Point for a number of years now. It is a passion for him and he has done this ministry in an exemplary manner for that time. He continues to look for appropriate venues to facilitate Turning Point into the community with the conviction that the curriculum facilitates new life in Christ. It [the award] is an appropriate thank you for his tireless efforts."
