When we say Faith-Based we mean that we place our faith in the One who has already won the victory–Jesus Christ. As Christians, we must realize that Jesus paid it all on the cross. Our problem is we live defeated lives because, while we claim Christ, we do not live Christ. Our goal is to teach men and their families to walk in the victory that is already theirs!
The Next Step Men’s Home is structured around the word of God, prayer, and discipline. Each day the men rise early for devotion and prayer followed by chores. By mid-morning they are in group study, then lunch, and then back to group and individual study. Some days are set aside for fundraising and volunteer work in the community. Church attendance is required several times per week as well as recovery meetings.
The Next Step Men’s Home is a twelve month residential program. The first six months (Phase One) focuses on the Word of God, mentor-ship, volunteerism, and accountability. Phase Two moves into the working part of the program. Men look forward to beginning work while continuing in the disciplines learned in Phase One.
During the first six months the men are responsible for the cost of food or $100.00 per month. Once they begin work during the second six months they are responsible for paying $100.00 per week. We work hard to keep costs affordable as most recovery programs can become quite expensive. We can only do this with your help. Please consider a generous donation today so that we can continue to help men and their families.
