The Men’s Ministry Recovery Program is a biblically-based, residential discipleship program which teaches a way to conquer and overcome life issues. Our caring and compassionate staff and volunteers offer classes covering many issues men face when dealing with addictions and other life bondage issues. Each man joining the

others who have gone through much of the same suffering
in addition to structured study and biblical discipleship.

Incarcerated men are seeking to gain victory over fear, anger, doubt and experience peace. The Mission's Prison Ministry program helps  restore and rebuild the lives of imprisoned men and give them purpose.

Twice a week the ministry meets with men to hold chapel services, Bible studies and group sessions followed by group discussion and prayer. The ministry offers counseling for men who are recently released from prison to give them spiritual support as they adjust to the outside world.
