CELEBRATION MONDAY**DECEMBER -10, 2012
A DAY OF PRAISE (ADOP) is an 17 year-old
program that services families for the holidays. ADOP derived
from City of Joy Programs International, Inc. (COJI), a 501 C 3
Community Outreach Program of International City Christian
Center, Inc. (ICCC) based in Marietta, GA, formerly of
Columbus, Ohio – USA. ADOP has gone the extra mile by
helping individuals to help themselves achieve their goals.
We offer incentive programs along with the help that our
participants receive from the holidays. For instance besides
the free sit-down dinner, free toys, clothing, medical
assessment, and entertainment, we offer financial literacy
programs, as well as community and business informational
These workshops have consisted of such presenters as
Huntington Banks, Columbus Saves (Wealth Building

Philippines, Germany, Russia and more. The format of a sit-
down dinner also encompasses entertainment and holiday joy
