During the 12-month Residential Recovery Program, men and women are provided shelter, meals, and clothing at no charge, and are equipped with life skills, such as computer navigation, resume writing, and money management. We teach them how to apply God's Word to their lives, accept responsibility, and live a life of independence. They are taught how to break the cycle of self-destruction through being fully involved in their growing relationship with Jesus Christ. It is this growing relationship with Christ that will lead a person to not rely on alcohol, drugs or any other destructive substitutes for joy, meaning and peace that are a commonality in their lives.
Life Recovery Programs
The men and women's program uses a Christ-centered approach to helping men 18 and over resolve addiction and other life issues. We use the acronym life which stands for; Learn about Christ, have an Intimate Relationship with Christ, Follow Christ, and become an Example of Christ. We believe that men must first know about Christ through the constant preaching of the gospel, fall in love with the Savior, and then obey Him through this love.
In the program, a man will receive Christian counseling, learn how to heal from past wounds and develop healthy ways of coping. He will also get the chance to study the Bible and participate in the education program to improve employment skills. After graduating, men have the opportunity to continue to use Mission resources until they get back on their feet.
