We invite our guests to hear the message of God's love and healing in our daily chapel services and Bible studies.
At our Burnside Shelter, up to 45 men participate in our residential New Life recovery programs.
As they begin to experience care and acceptance, these men slowly begin to see that a better life is possible. They don't have to continue to suffer for poor choices in their past.
In safe and grace-filled relationships with recovery counselors and fellow friends, they face the addictions, hurts and habits that have held them back from the life they've really wanted. They see that they have the power to choose a better way.
Shepherd's Door, our women and children's ministry center, is a refuge of safety and healing. The facility provides all they need "nutritious meals, safe accommodations, a beautiful and nurturing environment, counseling and training" all under one roof. Up to 37 women and their children engage in recovery during their 12 -18 month stay.
