As you heard two Sundays ago, we have officially purchased what we refer to as Hope House! We are thrilled as this is a huge step forward for us as we seek to be ambassadors and lights of Jesus into the dark world of addictions. This house is under the umbrella of our addictions ministry called Transformation to Recovery (TTR). The house will engage in an intentional discipleship program, as well as various addictions programs and integration of the residents into the life of our church. We currently have four guys who are living in the home and three more on the way. Please be praying for them and for us as we get this off the ground. We are excited to see how God is going to work!
As we step into this ministry, God is already opening doors and giving us tremendous opportunities to bring the gospel to those with this struggle. As a result, the board of TTR has made a risky, but faith filled decision to hire John Carlson to be our full time Executive Director. We believe this is a strategic step that will position us both to establish a firm foundation for this ministry and respond to opportunities for growth. This decision was a step of faith for John as we aren’t able to guarantee ongoing funding and faith for our board as we understand that this means that we have to find ways to increase our giving base. Yet, God has already blown us away with how He has provided for this ministry and we are confident that He will continue to do so.
