Character First

Character First education offers tools to help each student build character in the classroom, at home and in the community. Lasting solutions to education problems come when leaders model good character and encourage students to build character qualities such as attentiveness, truthfulness, gratefulness, diligence and obedience, just to name a few.

We equip volunteer coaches to teach the program in the elementary schools in the Yuba-Sutter Area (K-6th Grade) three times a month.

The program is made possible by the collaborative care of Doctor Joseph Cassady and the Church of Glad Tidings. We remove tattoos from the face, neck, forearms, hands or wrist. The sessions are scheduled once a month at a reduced cost of $50.00 per session. Multiple tattoos can be treated during an appointment.

Tearing Down Strongholds Ministries

The prophet Isaiah describes the church today as:  “A people robbed and plundered; all of them are snared in holes and trapped in prisons. They are being ravished by the predators and no one is rescuing them. They have become plunder for the enemy and no one is saying ‘Give it back”.

TDS is a ministry birthed out of Glad Tidings in 1997 to see The Church become all that Jesus called her to be; His Warrior Bride. Over the last 14 years we have ministered deliverance to thousands of hurting people across the globe, helping them become an army that will stand strong to defeat the enemy and take back everything he has stolen from them.
