0-18 Months

Exhort, equip and assist those with  un-favorable backgrounds in achieving stability and consistency in personal habits, family connections & empowerment, life support, employment, and church commitment. 


Help men with un-favorable backgrounds  grow in obedience & reliance upon God, our loving Father, for victory over predictable temptations. The fellowship of believers grows stronger during this time by learning how to demonstrate ''tough love" overcome fears, and work together to meet needs.

PHASE THREE: DISCIPLESHIP

Help men with un-favorable backgrounds  build character and maturity in God, develop healthy friendships with other believers, participate in "mainstream" activities and serve the local community or victims of crime by doing restorative volunteer work.  The fellowship of believers grows stronger during this time as they enjoy God's power to transform, discover the gifts and hearts, learn how to disciple, and experience the meaning of restorative justice.
