Michelle Prendiz is first and foremost a daughter of God who has been saved, healed, and delivered from a life of destruction through the power of Jesus Christ. She graduated HSM in 2007, and then did a third year internship at Teen Challenge.
Teen Challenge is a faith based organization that helps both men and women with life controlling problems. She was later licensed as a minister through Heartland World Ministries and Pastor Steve Hill.
In 2009 She started a ministry called "Valuable In His Eyes." (valuableinhiseyes.com) Michelle wanted a way to connect with young girls that she would meet in "everyday settings." This would be a recourse they could contact her, connect with her, be ministered to through articles, short videos, testimonies etc, but most importantly meet Jesus and be encouraged in the Lord.
Michelle had previously experienced living and working in the inner city of Los Angeles at the "Los Angeles International Dream Center," with both women and young girls. She served in leadership working with those who have experienced many forms of abuse - girls who were coming out of gangs, prostitution, drugs, alcohol, & many other issues. The desire in her heart began to grow deeper after she left knowing that God had placed her there to set a flame in her heart to one day again reach these broken and hurting girls.
In 2010 she became a part of "Chaplains for Women International" and was ordained as a Chaplain. Currently, she is involved with HSM overseeing the ladies mentoring program bringing in guest speakers for the ladies. She is ministering in the girls juvenile jail teaching life skills classes weekly and is also involved in bringing awareness, prevention, and restoration concerning child sex trafficking.
Michelle's first passion is working with at risk and troubled girls. Her hearts desire is to see young girls find their identity in Christ & to be healed & restored from the brokenness of their past---whether it is comes from being a victim of different forms of abuse, mother or fatherless issues, rejection, abandonment, sex trafficking, or other issues that have taken place in their life. Michelle continues to put Christ first while serving and loving her husband Luis. She continues to encourage and pray with those that are placed in her path on a daily basis "wherever she may go." Michelle continues to share what He has brought her out of, while fulfilling the great commission Matthew 28:19 & proclaiming Isaiah 61 to the brokenhearted.
