Crossroads Rescue Mission is strongly rooted in faith in Jesus Christ. It applies the Bible and prayer as its primary source of rehabilitation and restoration. When people find faith, they find strength, hope, and ultimately healing. Our burden is to lead people to break the chains of addiction and help them find hope and forgiveness through the love of God, salvation through Jesus Christ, and to establish them with a firm foundation through the teaching and preaching of God's Word.
We believe in developing the entire person; body, soul, and spirit. Development process involves teaching and application of what is taught through their interaction with others in the program and their leaders. There are 7 key elements for developing character:
(1) Love, (2) Respect for authority, (3) Humility, (4) Discipline, (5) Integrity, (6) Honesty, and (7) Faithfulness.
Our program consists of three phases. In phase one, we expect each man to commit to 90 days here at Crossroads. Men attend chapel twice a day with phase one classes for sixty minutes each morning. Through the day men are assigned various jobs depending on their particular skill sets; everything from maintenance and green-house workers, cooks, warehouse workers, to thrift store helpers. Phase-one classes focus on recovery and providing the basics needed to begin a personal walk with the Lord and successful Christian living. We encourage each resident to continue to the second phase of our program, "The Sons of God." This is an intense, six month study, presented in a fast-paced, challenging, learning environment. Men enrolled in the Sons of God program are held to a higher standard of accountability and are used as encouragers to the new residents. The courses deliver the equivalent of a first year of Bible college curriculum. Upon graduation, phase three emphasizes preparing a resident for self sufficiency. Attention is given to financial planning, family life, job skills, and continuing education. We believe all three phases of this program identify the plan that God intends for us to live, according to the instruction He has given us in His Word.
