We are a Christian Discipleship Rehabilitation Program:
We are a Faith and Bible based Program. We have two Bible classes Monday-Friday that are structures to explore the teaching of the Bible and how to the men can apply it to their lives.
We believe that it is only through a relationship with Jesus Christ that men can be truly set free from their life-controlling issues. So our program focuses on Discipleship and teaching men how to living out their relationship with Jesus Christ can transform their lives and give them opportunity to have a new life in Christ.
The battle with Life-controlling issues comes with a unique set of challenges. This requires that there be a strict structure and set of rules to help provide an environment of accountability and discipline.
Here are a few examples of rules or guidelines our program follows:
Residents are not allowed to work for the First 9 months.
