Shield Ministries was co-founded by David and Melodie Truluck in 2007. David's life journey ignited a passion to serve men who were living in the devastation of their past. David witnessed many men who had allowed the lost of hope to keep them from experiencing true freedom. Many men were able to modify behaviors but still desperately needed to transform their thinking, choosing, and building patterns to move from living life devastated to thriving.
David often shares that he has experienced the most success after he was charged with a felony but only through the power of redemption through Christ Jesus who worked through a life changing, comprehensive educational and collaborative effort which designed the blueprint for our current evidence based practices.
The Program Model was developed through collaborative community relationships which are key contributors to successful re-entry. Shield ministries works closely in communication with the SC Probation, Parole, and Pardon Services in Charleston County and the Charleston County Sheriff's Office along with the participants to ensure regulatory compliance for men to successfully completed their Probation Supervision period as well as to mitigate potential safety concerns.
