For many men, the New Creation Discipleship Recovery Program is the opportunity for a new start.
Their lives have been derailed by alcohol abuse, drug abuse, or other destructive behaviors. They are searching for a new direction, and the New Creation Program gives them that new direction.
Men in the New Creation Program are in Bible Study classes every day. In these classes, they learn how to make right choices for their lives and surrender their lives to God. Life skills classes and recovery classes are provided to help program men move forward with a victorious life. Program men are also involved in daily work therapy and assignments. These chores help men learn the responsibility and self-discipline necessary for long term growth.
Men in the program are required to attend daily devotionals and memorize scripture on a weekly basis. Each man also meets with a case manager once a week. The case management meetings provide the opportunity for counseling, self examination, and accountability. Program participants are also offered advice on steps to take to continue their spiritual development through case management.
The New Creation Program also helps men become re-established in the community. Men in the program are required to connect with a local church and local recovery group. This helps men to begin to develop a spiritual foundation outside of the Mission. It also provides a positive group of Godly people to help them in fellowship and accountability.
Every year, the Mission holds a graduation service for the men who have completed the New Creation Program. For some men, it is the first graduation service of any kind they have participated in. For all of them, it is a great accomplishment. Graduates of the New Creation Program have gone on to college, obtained full time employment, restored relationships with family members, and seen how God blesses them when they surrender. Through the New Creation Program, the Road to a New Life starts here.
