As God teaches us new truths, our philosophy of ministry is always evolving. What has never changed is our desire for our residents to focus on growing closer in their walk with Christ, to be Christ-driven, not to be rule or program driven. Their focus must not be toward graduating to feel like they have accomplished something and prove to others how good they are doing, having abided by all the rules. It must be to yield to the Holy Spirit’s voice, desiring to obey Christ to please His heart. Being relatively small, we deal with each person individually in regard to whether their hearts are truly desiring to yield to Christ, or simply looking for a safe place to live until something better comes along. Since we never require anyone to fundraise, they are able to spend a great deal of time pursuing their relationship with God and blessing others in our community in need. We emphasize teaching them to walk out what God has worked in because they want to, not have to. To help our residents grow spiritually they attend daily Bible studies, keep journals, use workbooks, attend a couple of church services on weekends, attend Celebrate Recovery, receive counseling, and watch teaching and worship videos.
