The Family Honor Charleston Team – Then and Now

It’s an exciting and bittersweet time at Family Honor, as we are training some new recruits as future Presenters for Family Honor, and saying goodbye to some familiar faces.  Our Charleston, South Carolina Presenter Team has four long-time Presenters who are retiring at the end of this program year, Thomas and Karen Provost and Jim and Marty Rebuck, and one additional, Steve Sabback, who retired last year.

Thomas commented, “I think the biggest impact that Family Honor has made for me as a father and a husband is the regular attention that it drew to chastity.  Chastity has to be an intentional virtue and reading about it, reflecting on it and speaking about it has helped me to grow in it personally.”

Karen has also experienced many positive effects from being a Family Honor Presenter, stating

“… Family Honor was a ministry that we could participate together in, and reinforce our desire to live and love chastely.  While at the same time we were able to share with families the goodness and dignity of each individual, of sexuality, and the gift of fertility.  The tools we shared in the programs helped us as we raised our own children.  It is our hope that the fruits of our labor will continue to strengthen the families we shared with, and our own family, as we daily strive to love as Christ in our relationships.  Family Honor is a blessing in our lives!

Family Honor is actively recruiting men and women to train as Presenters for our family-centered programs in the Low Country area of South Carolina. If you believe in the importance of family, faith, and truth, and you live in either Charleston, Berkeley, Dorchester, Colleton or Beaufort county and think you’d like to find out more information about being trained as a Presenter, we’d love to hear from you! You don’t have to be perfect, just willing to learn! Please contact us today at:

We invite you to take a look back with us at members of our Charleston-area team through the years!
