Ministry & Business Plan

Mission Statement and Purpose


The Mission strives to support the community through various outreach projects, with an intense focus on helping those who are battling addictions and the loved one surrounding them, as well as young ladies who find themselves facing an unplanned or unsupported pregnancy. The Mission meets regularly to support and encourage anyone who is struggling. Whether facing recovery from drug and/or alcohol addiction, unplanned pregnancy, divorce, death of a loved one, or just life's daily struggles, everyone is encouraged to join in fellowship, worship, and studying God's Word. Family members of those going through recovery are also welcomed, as well as anyone interested in involvement with the ministry and related outreach activities.
