• Men must complete several phases in the Discipleship Program before they can begin looking for work. All 4 phases must be completed before graduating from the Discipleship Program and moving from Transitional into Long Term Housing. This normally takes approximately 15-18 months.
• Although our Discipleship Program is not specifically a substance abuse or work program, our emphasis upon the application of Biblical principles leads to the development of personal discipline and character qualities which enable each man to become a an honest, hardworking and reliable employee. Also, an important part of our Discipleship program is the Learning Center. Each man in the program is required to
complete classes, which cover reading, writing, arithmetic, typing and computer skills. Help with GED preparation is also available.
