My teeneger has turned into a monster last weekend.Before then , she is this JNR Pastor who tells her age group how bad is sleeping around and desrespecting the elders.

Just last weekend she jumped over our fence because she wanted to go clubing at the older guy picked her up and the following day she went to my parents home.

How do I handle her,love her and accept her back home? please adivse

Try to stop thinking of your daughter as a monster. Think about her as a kid who made a really big mistake that was probably a cry for help. She made bad choices for a reason (or multiple reasons), and you need to figure out what's going on inside her head.

You really need to talk to her. Or it may be more productive to have her talk to a third party if you think she'll be more honest - a trusted older teen or college student that she knows, a relative, a teacher at school, a counsellor, etc. You need somebody she'll open up to and be honest with. Has she said anything to your parents about what's gone on and why she went to their house?

This is very concerning. It's a really big rebellion for a kid who you've never had issues with. She didn't get into trouble with peers, she was with an older guy. She didn't lie or come up with a cover story to get out of the house, she just ran away. She didn't do something locally, she left for a neighbouring area. She didn't come home, she went to her grandparents house. Telling you she's sleeping over a friend's house so she can go to a party and get drunk with a bunch of friends from school would be a more "normal" rebellion. This is really a whole other level.
