AT OUTSTRETCHED ARMS.....
We believe that
through the Word of God, lives are changed from the inside
Through a relationship with Jesus Christ broken lives have been restored. We
currently have non-residential students, as well as a home for residential
students, located in Roseville MI. Through the teaching of God's Word and
His principles; along with the application of His Word, lives have been changed
We have found through the past 14 years, that for individuals who have to stay in destructive environments, while seeking to move forward, the struggle is greater. There is a longer period of time required to build the foundation necessary to allow the student to continue on the journey of victory. When an individual is separated from the temptation, distractions and environment of the destructive behavior and pain, they are able to focus on the restoration that comes through God's Word. Also,in a residential discipleship program, the structure and discipline is of greater effect.
It is a fact that addiction affects everyone, whether directly or indirectly. Addiction destroys individual lives; families; generations; relationships; communities; crime rate; businesses; etc.
In most cases, individuals who have been incarcerated, were under the influence of a substance and/or alcohol.
Adults who are addicted often have children who will suffer as a result, through negelct and/or abuse... and sadly, in most cases, they become bound by the same behavior.
