Changed Lives Ministry
A ministry that provides a structured Christian lifestyle and a safe environment for troubled individuals to overcome whatever problems they may be facing. This is a 10-week program based on the belief that faith in God, strong work ethics, and the basic practice of self-discipline will enable any individual to attain victory over their problems. We firmly believe that God leads these men to this facility, both to plant the seed of Christian truth and cultivate moral responsibility. Our intention is not to have a prison-like atmosphere, but to grow in love through a personal relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ.
