Life Skill Classes
Purpose Driven Life
Celebrate Recovery was founded in 1991 by Pastor John Baker of Saddleback Church with the goal of overcoming habits like sex disorders and drug addictions with a twelve-step program based on Christian principles. Other churches and some prisons implemented the program, and as of March 2004 more than 150,000 people are said to have participated. At the Faith-Based and Community Initiative Conference in 2004, U.S. President George W. Bush praised Celebrate Recovery as being able to "change hearts" where government cannot.
Men's Transitional Housing Facility
Shield Ministries provides housing for men who are homeless as a result of their past criminal record. Housing is limited to those who are enrolled and actively participate in the Shield Ministries Program.
Weekly housing program fees are due each Friday. Shield Ministries accepts referrals from local Probation, Pardon, and Parole services.
Worship Service & Bible Study
An interdenominational adult worship service is held every Sunay evening at 4:45 pm for adult men. This service, although not exclusively for offenders, provides a safe environment that promotes freedom in worship.
