Evangelist Amy Lambert arrested for driving while impaired in Charlotte, North Carolina

Amy Lambert is the founder of Hope Uprising in Charlotte, North Carolina. She is an evangelist and speaks around the world.

THE MOVEMENT

The mission of Hope Uprising is to fuel an uprising of hope one person at a time. We spread hope by using unconventional methods to reach the overlooked, destitute, and forgotten people around the world. We fulfill this through four ways: AwarenessRecoveryInvasion, and Training.
Hope Uprising was formed by former drug addict, Amy Lambert.  Through Amy’s own personal journey of battling, and overcoming addiction, she was inspired to create a movement that would not only reach those without hope, but ignite passion in others to go and do the same.

Amy's story of addiction was featured here on CBN.



Amy Lambert was arrested on December 31, 2016 and charged with driving while impaired. In a new post today on Facebook, she shares thoughts on hitting rock bottom. She does not mention her arrest. I posted a comment asking if she is going to tell her followers, but she deleted it after just a few minutes. She also blocked me on Twitter after one tweet with the link to the news about her arrest.



















As an evangelist and public figure leading people who are in recovery and fighting addictions, it does not serve them well if she is not being honest with them about her own struggles, and in this case, attempting to hide an arrest. It also concerning if she is not seeking professional help for her struggles and encouraging others to do so as well. Social media posts and scriptures may make people feel connected with her, but that will not suffice when professional intervention is needed.
