Divone Price
Divone came to know the Lord at a young age, after the death of his brother and father. His mother’s example of a Godly woman also helped drive him to the Cross. The military led Divone and his wife, Hannah, to Clarksville. When they came to Awaken, they got involved in small groups. They were then given the responsibilities of running the Social and Seating Specialists and becoming group leaders. As a Pastor, Divone loves to serve wherever he can at Awaken.
